Leon Hall was the best corner on the field. He had six total tackles, one for a loss, and a pass deflection. No other corner did that. The passing game ate the Bengals defense alive, even after Bell left with a knee injury. Lack of pressure was to blame but there was poor coverage on a number of plays, especially the final touchdown when Dre Kirkpatrick fell after Antonio Brown got around him and separated Kirkpatrick from his coverage.
