5. Use Gresham

Throughout his career, Jermaine Gresham has a caught a touchdown pass against the Chargers every time he has played against him, and the Bengals cannot be afraid to use him. With a big catch frame, Gresham can create mismatches. Eric Weddle has been inconsistent throughout the season, and the Bengals must be aware of this and attack him at times with Gresham.

6. Cut Back Turnovers

Throughout the year, the Bengals struggle the most when they turn the ball over. In their last two losses, the Bengals turned the ball over 7 times. The Bengals must hold onto the ball and not make costly turnovers if they want to win. Passes have been intercepted by bad throws, poor routes, drops, and lack of physicality. The Bengals offense as a whole must keep the ball instead of giving it away.
