Tight End: A
Three Touchdowns, five completions for 53 yards, that was the stats line for Tyler Eifert. Not to mention the up field block that Eifert gave Marvin Jones to help spring him for that 25 yard catch and run. He did not disappoint in any way and gave Dalton a target when he was looking for one, especially in the end zone tonight.

Tyler Kroft has seen action in all eight games but has yet to record a stat on offense. Many Bengals fans hoped that he would help Eifert and become another offensive threat, but hasn’t really done much other than special teams. If they can find a way to get him into the mix, this offense would become even deadlier late in the season.
Offensive Line: B
By far the weakest part of the Bengals offense with the absence of Andre Smith. Eric Winston was beat on a few occasions off the corner, which resulted in an Andy Dalton sack and being pushed from the pocket. Andrew Whitworth looked a little lost when it came to another sack on Dalton, when Boling was getting over powered off the line and Whitworth had no assignment.
They only gave up those two sacks and their run blocking was much improved over the short week. They kept Paul Kruger, Desmond Bryant, Danny Shelton, and John Hughes off balance and controlling the line and capitalized on two huge mistakes by Randy Starks, who got a taunting penalty and then a nuetral zone infraction.
To bad Eifert took Jake Fisher‘s first chance at a touchdown, it would have been just as spectacular as Peko at fullback.
