The Ugly:

 

Playing to Their Competition – How does the Bengals defense shut down Rodgers and Brady and then let Hoyer and Lewis beat them? I chalk it up to preparation and motivation, and I chalk that up to coaching. It is as if this Bengals defense needs outside motivation or a perceived challenge to play at the top of their game and that is concerning to me. Take a look at the numbers:
