Bengals fire defensive coordinator after rout by Saints

CINCINNATI (AP) The Bengals have fired defensive coordinator Teryl Austin on Monday, a day after a 51-14 loss to the Saints , and put head coach Marvin Lewis in charge of trying to resuscitate a historically bad unit.

New Orleans scored on every possession except the last one - when it took a knee while in field-goal range - during its rout at Paul Brown Stadium, prompting the Bengals (5-4) to fire a coordinator in-season for the second year in a row.

The Bengals have given up at least 500 yards in three straight games - a first in the Super Bowl era - and are on pace to give up an NFL record for yards in a season . In the past four games, Cincinnati has allowed 481, 551, 576 and 509 yards.
