They had flashes of brilliance and then not so much. NBC featured the Andrew Whitworth matchup against James Harrison, who rushed most of the night. Many times though, rookie center, Russell Bodine was beat off of the line and they were able to pressure Andy Dalton into leaving the pocket or throwing the ball quicker than what he wanted. Overall they will need to improve if they stand a chance of winning in Indianapolis against the Colts defense, who didn’t allow a point last season. Allowing three sacks and four QB hits will not get the job done, that is for sure.
