Bengals vs Dolphins: Game review

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

 

Offensively, the Bengals struggled. The running game, other than a nice run by Bernard Scott early, was missing, which enabled the Dolphins to focus on stopping the pass. Dalton was off target, especially early in the game, missing several receivers badly. He did wind up with over 200 yards passing and a TD, but had the two INTs and several very poor passes. BenJarvus Green-Ellis was a non-factor, managing just 14 yards on 9 carries. A.J. Green did have a good day, with 9 catches for 65 yards and the TD. On defense, defensive tackle Geno Atkins had another fine day, adding another sack and making several big tackles. Rey Maualuga continued to struggle in coverage, as did all of the linebackers.

The Bengals travel to Cleveland next week to play the Browns. The Browns are seeking their first win still, but Trent Richardson is establishing himself as a great RB, while Weeden continues to improve. With a tough second half schedule, the Bengals can’t afford to fall to 3-3.
