Spor_tees Posted October 23, 2011 Report Share Posted October 23, 2011 Looking back so far this season, what would you say are your biggest high and low points of the Bengal's season?The high point for me was in the Buffalo game late in the 4th quarter on a third and 3, Dalton pulled down the ball and stretched for the first down marker. At first it was ruled a yard short, but after instant replay he was awarded the first down. The Bengals then went on to kick the game winning FG that drive. Buffalo has been the best team they played this year and that was the difference. A close runner up would have been Dalton's interception in the Jags came where Dalton tackled Landry at the 2 yard line preventing a TD, and the defense ended up holding the Jags to a FG. That could have been the difference in the game.As for the low point in the season. It's actually not a player but the coach. I think it was a HUGE mistake for Marvin Lewis to not let Nugent try the 52 yard FG in the 4th quarter against the Broncos. The Bengals were down 2 points with about 4 minutes to play. If Marvin had enough confidence in his defense that they would get the ball back, then he should have had enough confidence in his kicker who hadn't missed a FG at that point, to make a 52 yarder. It's like when you play poker, you can muck bad hands all day, but when your stacks start to get low, you eventually gotta go all in. Don't go down without a fight, and that's what I think Marvin did in that game. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
