CINCINNATI -- Coach Marvin Lewis opened a notable week in the Bengals history by insisting that theyre not actually traveling to London for their next game. Pavel Zacha Jersey .Were not going to London, he said. Were playing the Redskins and it happens to be in London.Oh. OK then.Lewis also challenged a question about their 8-hour flight, emphasizing that they dont have an 8-hour flight. Thats technically true -- its slightly less than 8 hours. He told his players that their game at Wembley Stadium will be no different than if they were playing in the aisles of a local grocery store.I think Marvin said earlier today that whether were playing at Krogers or were playing in here or playing over there, we cant lose the task at hand and thats beating the Redskins, running back Jeremy Hill said.Lewis avoid-the-obvious comments show how much hes concerned that the Bengals (3-4) could get knocked out of whack by the franchises first trip to London. They play Washington (4-3) on Sunday in a game they desperately need to win.The defending AFC North champions got flattened in Dallas and New England before beating winless Cleveland 31-17 at home last week. Theyre only one game behind division-leading Pittsburgh, which is missing injured quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.A win over the team coached by former Bengals coordinator Jay Gruden would leave Cincinnati in the middle of the chase heading into its bye week. A loss would send the Bengals into their bye with more of that unsettled feeling theyve had this season.Its huge, which is why (Lewis) is trying to make this as much of a home game, as much of our normal schedule as possible, tight end C.J. Uzomah said. Its a huge week for us.The Bengals fly to London after practice Thursday. Their only soak-up-the-moment event will be a reception at the Tower Bridge on Friday night. Players will have a few free hours as well. Otherwise, its all about football.At the end of the day, were going down there not to eat fish and chips, not to see the queen, but were going down there to handle some business, defensive tackle Domata Peko said.The Bengals have another reason to wish they were staying home: Itll count as one of Cincinnatis home games, which means they lose one at Paul Brown Stadium.Several players are big fans of whats known as football in England, and theyre looking forward to playing in a place with such history as Wembley.Oh yeah, I think theres been a lot of great matches played on that pitch, and I think for us its going to be another good one for us to go there and play on Sunday, said Hill, whos a fan of Real Madrid.The coaching staff has told players to make sure they get plenty of rest leading up to the game, given how the time change will affect them. Also, theyve been told theres no wireless access on the flight, so theyll have to entertain themselves without the internet.I think this will be a good bonding experience for the team, Uzomah said. Were going to be on a plane together for 8 hours, cramped. Well get up and youll hear people say, `Ah, this sucks. Well be going through all that together, which will be nice.Game notes LT Andrew Whitworth watched practice in a shirt and sweatpants on Wednesday. He suffered a concussion in the win over Cleveland and hasnt been cleared to return. Lewis says he will be cleared for the game in London. ... G Clint Boling also was held out of practice with a sore shoulder. ... CB Dre Kirkpatrick was limited by a groin injury.

Colorado faces another big test in its bid to stay atop the South and two other teams face off to stay in the division race in the Pac-12 this week.Heres what to look for:---GAME OF THE WEEK: No. 21 Colorado at Southern California. The Buffaloes have been the surprise of the Pac-12, maybe all of college football. Picked to finish last in the Pac-12 South, they lead a division this late in the season for the first time since 2007, when they were atop the Big 12 North. Colorado gained a huge dose of confidence by beating Oregon and followed that with last weeks blowout win over Oregon State. Another big test awaits. The Trojans have been just as surprising as the Buffaloes, only in the opposite direction. Among the favorites to win the South, USC opened 1/3 for the first time since 2001. But the Trojans may have found something last week against Arizona State. In that game, all those talented offensive players got into a rhythm and USC won going away.BEST MATCHUP: UCLA at Arizona State. A game to stay in the Pac-12 South race. The Sun Devils and Bruins enter the game each at 1-1, a game behind Colorado. The winner will remain a game behind the Buffaloes or move into a tie if Colorado loses. The loser has a long road ahead in the division. The Sun Devills opened the season with four straight wins, but were blown out by USC last week in a game filled with big plays against their secondary. Cheap Devils Jerseys. Starting QB Manny Wilkins also injured his left foot and is questionable for Saturdays game, meaning redshirt freshman Brady White could start.

End the streak and the Huskies will start a season 6-0 for the first time since 1992. ... Arizona State K Zane Gonzalez needs to make two field goals to tie the FBS career record of 88 set by Florida States Dustin Hopkins from 2009-12. ... Utah coach Kyle Whittingham has 99 career victories entering Saturdays game against Arizona.IMPACT PLAYER: California QB Davis Webb. He leads the nation with 22 touchdown passes and 2,143 yards passing after throwing for 306 yards and four TDs in last weeks win over Utah.
