Week 1 Bengals Overreation

AJ Green couldn't have been more impressive.

The tweets were right, he owned Revis island last Sunday. Greene had 12 catches for 180 yards and 1 TD, his longest reception being a 54 yard haul. He was the man in New York yesterday. Green was just what the Bengals needed as the Jets stuffed the Bengals rushing attack. He was able to spread the field and give Dalton a solid target when he was under pressure.

1 of 7 sacks on Dalton
Which by the way, happened all too often. Dalton was sacked 5 times in the first half. That coupled with only 57 rushing yards posted by the Bengals Sunday is an embarrassment for the offensive line. I don't know what was going on. They were giving up pressure from every point on the D-Line; it wasn't just one guy beating them. It was the entire unit. This is going to be a problem as teams realize they can rush four and drop seven every play and still have 7 sacks. I still have faith in you O-Line, pick it up.

#26 CB Josh Shaw
Defensively, Cincinnati has to limit the rushing attack of the opponent and they win. They had luck on their side Sunday with the missed extra-point, but that will run out soon if they consistently give up 150 yards on the ground. Overall, you love to see the blocked FG and the great interception by CB Josh Shaw to seal the game (looking to see more of the same out of him).

All in all, a win is a win. It was week one, good to get the jitters out and start off on the right foot. #SuperBowl51Champs
