Low Charge: 3 Bengals Who Lacked Power Against The Chargers

1 of 3

The team pulled out the win in San Diego thanks to another strong defensive performance. For all the positive performances there were some of the negatives ones need to be pointed out.  After a bye week to prepare for one of the worst defenses in the league the offense still seemed anemic at times. With four games left in the regular season some players need to tighten up as the team prepares to make a run into the playoffs. Here are 3 members of the Bengals whose performances left something to be desired.

QB – Andy Dalton

Anyone with a couple of oh-ho’s can see that something just isn’t right with Andy Dalton and the offense. He did respond after another dreadful half, but he is becoming an Alex Smith clone.  For this team to win a playoff game he will have to show defenses that he can hit his back foot and deliver the football downfield.

Otherwise, stacking the box and doubling AJ will be all the defense needs to stop this offense. We all want Andy to do well, because his play will dictate the difference between a play team and a playoff winner.
