Bengals BYE week questions

2. Is play calling an issue? 

A lot of speculation has been made around the play calling and if it is an issue or not. Joe Burrow currently leads the league in interceptions like the previous slide details, but he also is at the top in touchdown passes. The inconsistency of the offense is what brings up the controversy.

The Bengals offense has moments where it looks as if it can keep up with any team at any moment as they did against Baltimore. Still, other times it seems completely stagnant, the play calling looks pretty predictable, and they’re not executing.

This could fall on the shoulders of a few people. This mostly includes Zac Taylor and offensive coordinator Brian Callahan but with Burrow having the keys to change the play call at the line of scrimmage after he reads and scans the defense, he also contributes to the problem.

Overall, the Bengals offense is not bad by any means, and they rank as one of the better offenses in the league. Still, it is the consistency that needs to be improved, which should be emphasized in practice until the game next Sunday in Las Vegas.
