Week 8: Bengals @ Jets

Recommended Posts

Getting 82 yards in one play that should have resulted in a 12 yard gain at most will do that for you.
With how much they were forcing feeding Higgins at the start of the game makes his comment less surprising.
At one point I found myself wondering why that was happening?  Burrow sure was talking about Higgins prior to the start of the season.
While he's been dealing with injuries, I can help but wonder if he's getting a little raw over things?

Chicken or egg thing.   Do the Bengals have to convert 2nd/3rd and manageable better to get Higgins and Boyd more productive?  Or do Higgins and Boyd have to be more productive to convert 2nd/3rd and manageable? 

Bengals are an explosive offense but haven't excelled at ball control, yet.

I think eventually these guys will find big plays as coverage cheats over to Chase.

He is not. And he will not be. I mean, they gave Higgins FIFTEEN targets last week...

this is excellent from Goodberry - quick watch - this WILL slow down the ravens in the future (and other teams):

This feels like a “score two TDs and you’re good” game. No idea how the Jets will score points unless we hand them turnovers.

I am laughing out loud over trying to imagine the Marvin Lewis/Andy Dalton teams with that kind of late week attitude.
