Zac Taylor is having to answer quite a few questions after the Cincinnati Bengals lost a close game against the Chicago Bears over the weekend.

In a game that did not feel as close as the final score would suggest, Cincinnati struggled to get anything going on offense. The Bengals entered the game hoping to find success against their former quarterback but ended up facing Justin Fields for most of the game.

Fields took most of the snaps after Andy Dalton left the game with an injury but was able to do just enough to get his team the victory. The Bears had a lot of success on defense, shutting the Bengals down and forcing them into situations they did not want to be in throughout the game.

For Cincinnati, the offense looked like a completely different unit than the one that took the field against Minnesota last week. They struggled to keep Joe Burrow upright and could not find much rhythm.

The Bengals had a chance to set the pace for the AFC North, however, a loss brings the entire division to a tie at 1-1. After an important week two battle, here are my three biggest surprise for the Bengals.
