The 1999 Cincinnati Bengals season was the team's 32nd year in professional football and its 30th with the National Football League. In what would be the final season of pro football being played at Riverfront Stadium, then known as Cinergy Field, the Bengals struggled out of the gates again losing 10 of their first 11 games. After winning two straight, the Bengals faced the expansion Cleveland Browns in the final game at Riverfront Stadium. The Bengals would win the game 44-28[a] before losing their final two games to finish with a 4-12 record.
^Coach Bruce Coslet took running back Corey Dillon out of that game in the third quarter even though he was on pace to break the league's single-game rushing record of 275 yards, set by the late Walter Payton almost 22 years before. Asked why afterwards, Coslet reminded reporters that Payton had set that record in a 10-7 game.
