  • Deep Passes. The Bengals defensive secondary has done pretty well; however, the deep pass has appeared to be a weakness at some points. It has resulted in quite a few touchdowns; whether because of poor tackling, bad coverage, help late over the top; etc.
    The Bengals defense must be on it’s heels against Torrey Smith, a receiver whom does well burning corners. Granted, he is listed as questionable for the game. Dre Kirkpatrick had a much better outing against the Vikings than the Steelers, even though he got beat on a deep pass.
    But Kirkpatrick seems to continue to get better and better. Adam Jones has stepped up extremely well into the #1 cornerback spot. Reggie Nelson has been stout all year long, and George Iloka has played exceedingly well.
    However, all have been beaten deep at some points throughout the season, and the Ravens may use it to their advantage.
