Cincinnati Bengals: Weekly MVPs from Week 2 loss vs. Bears
Bengals Weekly MVP’s
Rookie MVP: Ja’Marr Chase
For the second consecutive week, like McPherson, Ja’Marr Chase takes home the Weekly rookie MVP (though McPherson could have definitely received both Special Teams and Rookie MVP awards in his first two games).
Back to Chase though, there was no other rookie who impressed more on the Bengals or saw the number of snaps he receives.Chase was quiet for most of the day and even suffered a blatant drop, but a clutch 42-yard touchdown saved his day and his stat line when he grabbed a pass from Joe Burrow.
However, Chase was not hesitant to sense his minor frustration on the lack of deep passes and aggression by the offense’s play calling. He didn’t say anything wrong or call anybody out, he just noted — like most fans noted themselves — that the Bengals played a little too conservative and waited too long to start taking those shots down the field.
Chase ended the day with only two receptions for 54 yards and a touchdown but remained to be this week’s rookie MVP.
Who would you give the MVPs to from this week’s game?
