Defense took a major step back from last weeks win over Denver. The offense seemed to be lost many times. The special teams didn’t seem to have it either. Although they don’t play the game, they seemed to lack the passion they had last week and again, when players give up on plays, you get in their face, no matter who they are. Quit being their best friend, I beg of you!

The Bengals will need to turn it around if they want to get their first playoff win in four tries. The will face Indianapolis in Indy at 1:05pm on Sunday, January 4th.
