Foods for the Cincinnati Bengals fan

Appetizer: Cincinnati Chili (Under) Dogs

Cincinnati is home to a distinct variation of chili with a unique blend of seasonings and used in a variety of ways. It can be served in a bowl, over spaghettis or on top of a hotdog, like Martha Stewart’s Cincinnati Chili Dog. Size them down with cocktail wieners for small bites.

Entrée: Copycat Frisch’s Big Boy Burger

Cincy is also the original home of Frisch’s Big Boy, a regional chain of burger joints. The signature sandwich of the jolly, large lad can make anywhere feel like the Queen City, so why not whip up some copycat burgers for the Ohio River Valley enthusiast in your life.

Dessert: Homemade Ice Cream

Every city has its own form of a signature ice cream, and Cincinnati’s is undoubtedly the Ohio-based Graeter’s. If you don’t have access to a scoop shop near you, why not make your own easy, homemade ice cream in a bag, like Delish’s recipe that only requires four ingredients (one of which is ice).

Entrée: Taco Bar

The Golden State is also known for quality Mexican food. Please everyone in your gameday crowd with a build-your-own-taco bar, like Rachel Ray’s version that includes toppings like cheese, red plum tomatoes and pico de gallo.

NFL quarterback rankings 2023: Chris Simms’ top 40 QB countdown ahead of upcoming NFL season


While the NFL is a league that is ever-changing, some things are set to stay the same in 2023 — like the revealing of Chris Simms’ top 40 QB countdown.

Last year’s list saw Josh Allen take his place atop the quarterback throne, with Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes and Los Angeles’ Justin Herbert not far behind at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. It was, however, Mahomes who would ultimately reign over all NFL quarterbacks at the end of the season, as the 27-year-old collected both the NFL MVP honors and his second Lombardi Trophy.

This NFL offseason, however, has brought some intriguing adjustments that are likely to shake up Simms’ rankings.

While some signal-callers such as Jalen Hurts and Lamar Jackson found their prolonged home with massive contract signings, others will be venturing to a new franchise in search of a fresh start. Aaron Rodgers‘ trade to the New York Jets is unquestionably the most staggering shift, but other quarterbacks on the move such as Derek Carr and Jimmy Garoppolo cannot be forgotten.

And with three of the first four picks in the 2023 NFL Draft being spent on a quarterback, emerging talent will likely turn the tides for some franchises this upcoming season.
