CINCINNATI - The Bengals winced when the schedule came out and they saw what was in store for November.Three consecutive road games. Traveling 5,708 miles roundtrip. More than half of a day spent on airplanes just getting to and from the cities.Ugh.Its definitely different, left tackle Andrew Whitworth said on Wednesday. Its a challenge, and we knew that a long time ago. We knew we were going to go on a tough stretch, and then we were going to have a month where were going to have some of the toughest games weve played all season.Those December games — three of them against AFC North rivals — will have a lot of significance because the Bengals (7-3-1) have managed to become kings of the road.Cincinnati is back in first place after winning the first two, 27-10 at New Orleans and 22-13 at Houston. The Bengals complete the stretch on Sunday at Tampa Bay (2-9) with a chance to make team history.Its the ninth time the Bengals have played at least three consecutive road games during a season. Theyve never won three straight on the road.So its going to be a challenge for us three weeks in a row, go on the road and get your bodies right, get your minds right and get mentally focused to go in there and perform, Whitworth said.Theyve turned their season around on the road.A 24-3 loss to Cleveland in a Thursday night game at Paul Brown Stadium knocked them out of first place and left them with three losses and a tie in their last six games. Up next was that three-game stretch on the road.Theyve played two of their best all-around games in New Orleans and Houston. Andy Dalton recovered from one of his worst games — three interceptions and a 2.0 passer rating against Cleveland — by completing 70 per cent of his passes with four touchdowns and one interception in the last two.The defence has finally steadied itself, too. After ranking 31st against the run following the Cleveland game, Cincinnati has allowed only 139 yards in the last two combined.Its been good for us to get into this rhythm and win these last two, especially being on the road, Dalton said. Im not saying its good to be on the road, but weve been able to do some good things so far.Whitworth thinks the toughest part of three weeks is the travel.Its not like were travelling to close games, he said. Weve been almost a two-hour flight three weeks in a row now, back and forth. Its hard on you.After a game, you sit on a plane for two hours and it messes up your recovery time. When you play at home, youve got a little more time to recover. It cuts down on those things. So theres a lot of that type of stuff.If they beat the Buccaneers, theyll be in good shape heading into a tough closing stretch. They host Pittsburgh (7-4), play at Cleveland (7-4), host Denver (8-3) in a Monday night game, and then finish at Pittsburgh.Its tough enough winning one game on the road, let alone three, receiver A.J. Green said. We have won two already, though, and I think we are on a great track and need to continue this.Notes: Linebacker Vontaze Burfict was held out of practice on Wednesday, an indication hell miss a fifth straight game following knee surgery.

Drogba and Toure are expected to form the spine for Africas top-ranked team when it plays Japan, Colombia and Greece in Group C in Brazil. Toures brother Kolo, a Liverpool defender, was also on the preliminary list released by coach Sabri Lamouchi, along with strikers Wilfried Bony of Swansea and Gervinho of Roma. Emmanuel Eboue, the former Arsenal and now Galatasaray right back, was not picked and looks set to miss the World Cup. Drogba, one of Africas best-ever strikers, is 36 and almost certainly heading to his last World Cup. Ivory Coast has its best chance of going far at the World Cup in Brazil after being drawn in a relatively manageable group. "I never said it was an easy group ... but we have our chances," Lamouchi said. Lamouchi expressed fears Tuesday at his squad announcement over the fitness of midfielders Souleman Bamba and Mathis Bolly, and Everton striker Lacina Traore, but he picked all three in his preliminary squad. The group will be cut to 23 for the World Cup. The coach also said Drogbas recent lack of game time because of a knee problem was an issue. "Not seeing Drogba on the field is also worrying." Lamouchi said. Yet the Ivorians still have a tallented squad drawn mainly from the Turkish, French, German and English leagues and are expected to perform better than 2010, when they exited in the group stage after being drawn to face with Brazil and Portugal.dddddddddddd The squad will travel to the United States on May 24 for a training camp in Dallas ahead of World Cup warm-up games against Bosnia on May 30 and El Salvador on June 4.
