On Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals hosted the Seattle Seahawks in what would end up being an extremely exciting game. Both teams got off to a hot start on offense, while neither defense seemed to be able to make a play. By the fourth quarter, the Seahawks held onto a 17-point lead–at this point, the game looked like it was completely out of hand for Cincinnati. However, the Bengals came back with a vengeance, scoring 20 unanswered points in the fourth quarter and overtime to knock off the Seahawks. This game was possibly the best we’ve seen in the Dalton era; we know the final score and most of us know the story line by now, but how did each unit fair in their efforts? Here are our grades for the Bengals’ Week 5 performance against the Seahawks.
