The Cincinnati Bengals will enter the week 4 bye 3-0 after a big 33-7 win over the Tennessee Titans. A big performance on both sides of the ball gave the Bengals such a overwhelming win on Sunday.
Andy Dalton had a good day with 169 yards passing and an 18 yard reception for a touchdown. The day goes to the rushing game behind Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill. Giovani Bernard had 47 yards with 2 touchdowns and Jeremy Hill 39 yards rushing and 1 touchdown. Andy Dalton threw his first interception on a tipped pass.
The Defense was a big part of this win. They picked of Jake Locker 2 times and gave the offense short fields. They also had a safety off of a holding call in the end zone. The defense allowed 326 yards and played strong bend but not break football. The allowed a 4th down conversion but 2 attempts. They did this while missing a big part of their defense in Vontaze Burfict, who was inactive after a second concussion in just as many weeks.
Bengals fans were promised a more balanced offense this season and Hue Jackson has yet to disappoint. The defense has proved that it will allow teams to gain yards but has kept them from the end zone on numerous occasions. The Bengals get an off week with a bye and will prepare for a Patriots team who just barely missed being embarrassed at home by the Oakland Raiders this week 16-9.
