The 1969 Cincinnati Bengals season was the team's 2nd year in professional football.

Paul Brown drafted quarterback Greg Cook of the Univ. of Cincinnati in the first round.

The same draft also produced linebacker Bill Bergey.

The Bengals jumped out to a 3-0 record, but finished 4-9-1.

The Nov. 9, 1969 Bengals vs. Oilers game at the Astrodome in Houston is unique in club history. It's the only game nobody won. Cincinnati played its only regular-season tie that afternoon, catching the Oilers at 31-31 on K Horst Muhlmann's 18-yard field goal with 0:22 left in the fourth quarter. Regular-season overtime was not in the rule book at that time.

The oldest season record in Bengals history, and the only one still standing from the Nippert Stadium years, is QB Greg Cook's average of 9.41 yards gained per passing attempt in 1969. The only other average of more than nine yards was 9.21 by QB Boomer Esiason in 1988.
