Cincinnati Bengals: 6 Keys to Beating the San Diego Chargers

3 of 4

3. Attack the Corners

The Chargers biggest weakness is their corners. The Bengals receivers must run crisp routes and not be afraid to play physical. The Chargers are 27th in the NFL against the pass, and Dalton should take his time and see everything down the field. If the receivers play sloppy, the Bengals offense may struggle. However, it appears the Bengals will do well against this team through the air.

4. Get to Rivers

Philip Rivers has been hot lately, and his line has been playing decently well. However, King Dunlap is most likely out and DJ Fluker’s status is up in the air, but he may be good to go. The Bengals will have to rush Rivers and make him make quick, forced throws to get him off his game. The Bengals defensive line must come up big in this game.
