Lights Too Bright for Bengals

September 10, 2012; Baltimore, MD, USA; Cincinnati Bengals safety Taylor Mays (26) is called for a helmet to helmet hit penalty against Baltimore Ravens tight end Ed Dickson (84) at M

Bench Taylor Mayes – How hard is it to learn not to head hunt? He just doesn’t get it, and I don’t think he ever will. At some point he is going to do that at a critical time, and it’s going to cost them a game.

Start Marvin Jones – The number two wide receiver may have been where he was supposed to be last night, but obviously there is no fear involved. At least Marvin Jones can make teams pay for focusing only on AJ Green.

Try Vontaze in the middle – Rey Maualuga has had plenty of time to make his mark. He just doesn’t seem to be a big time player. The defense still needs that spark, and Burfict could be the answer. Rey produces no big plays and consistently over pursues.

In the end, they lost to a team that was a dropped pass away from the Super Bowl. Who went 9-0 at home last year, on Monday Night Football days after their owner passed away. Even the Oakland Raiders won last year at Houston after Al Davis died. Put this horrible game behind you, and humiliate Brandon Weeden even more than when he got trapped under the American flag before last weeks game. Sunday can’t get here soon enough.
