Honestly, the game was played well by the Bengals. The O was clicking on all cylinders. Who were those other guys and what did they do with the Bengals D?
Regardless of the fact that I’m pretty sure So. Rita’s blind and deaf varsity team could take the Browns, the Bengals didn’t disappoint.
So they have improved to 6-5 and are on a two game streak. It’s way too soon to say the D is fixed, but they did play well.
Bengals 34, Browns 17
Of course I’m a nay sayer at times. While the Bengals did put up 34 points, they gave up 17 to a completely inept offense. For the most part the defense looked stellar, and the offense sputtered a bit.
It doesn’t show in the numbers, and a W is a W, so I’m happy, but…
For all intents and purposes the Bengals did man-handle the Browns, it never really was a game. They suffered some injuries, some key injuries to Pollack, Braham, and Jackson, all not good, and Sir Chad bruised his shoulder but continued to play.
The Bengals are for real, the next two weeks in my opinion will define the season.
At Pittsburgh and New England at Home. If the Bengals are 4-0 going into the Bye week, they will be 2-0 in the division and that will be HUGE.
