With one week left in the 2019 NFL exhibition season, the Cincinnati Bengals still have questions needing answers.
Thankfully, the 2019 NFL exhibition season is winding down. With only one game left, the Cincinnati Bengals still have some questions needing answers. With a 1-2 record and a home game left against the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday, head coach Zac Taylor has a lot to figure out.
First, is what to do with his offensive line. Hope was it would hold together and not be the liability most thought it would be. Fact is, it’s a problem, and even the most diehard of fans should know a solution may not be readily available.
Defensively, it’s shaky. The New York Giants moved the ball with relative ease. The G-Men were able to put drive after drive together exposing what may end up being a porous defense this season.
There are some bright spots. Especially behind the O-Line. Quarterback is interesting and stable. Andy Dalton looks to be getting more and more accustomed to a game plan that is creative and impressive. Additionally, those below him on the depth chart look to be capable in an emergency. Ryan Finley is clearly the breakout offensive find of 2019. As distressing as this is for Dalton fanboys and fangirls, Finley is a pleasant surprise.
Week 4 of the preseason is hardly must-see-TV. However, in Cincinnati, a few things will be worth paying attention to.
