Bengals at Broncos: The 10 Things I Liked and the 10 Things I Didn’t

The first half was another pathetic display where I honestly thought this game was going to continue what we saw in the second half against the Steelers. I was pleasantly surprised that we went to a no-huddle format in the second half and started a majority of plays in shotgun and pistol formations. This allowed Brock just a second or two more to throw, because our offensive line was getting manhandled the entire game.

10 Things I Liked:

  1. Despite a poor first half, the defense held the Bengals offense to under 300 yards with 294
  2. Overcoming a 14-point deficit
  3. Only 3 points allowed in the second half
  4. RB Ronnie Hillman saw 24 of his 35 total yards come after contact
  5. ILB Danny Trevathan had 10 solo tackles and 12 total tackles
  6. QB Brock Osweiler threw for 277 yards and 1 touchdown
  7. Our offense gained 4 first downs from penalties
  8. Punter Britton Colquitt punted 3 balls within the 20
  9. On four punts, we allowed Brandon Tate to return a total of 8 yards
  10. 6 tackles for a loss on defense

10 Things I Didn’t Like:

  1. The entire first half
  2. RT Michael Schofield
  3. 3 sacks allowed with a loss of 22 yards
  4. RB CJ Anderson’s fumble
  5. Defense struggled stopping RB Jeremy Hill on first down
  6. The Bengals had the ball for 37:28
  7. Our redzone offense still needs work, we went 1 for 3 in scoring within the redzone
  8. Our defense was 0% on allowing a score in the redzone
  9. The Bengals’ offense was 10 out of 17 on third down conversions
  10. Allowing the dozen tight catches along the sidelines
