3 questions Bengals must answer in divisional round vs. Titans
Can Joey Franchise stay hot?
The switch officially flipped after the Charger game, didn’t it? Despite the loss to San Francisco the following week, Zac Taylor has placed his trust in his second-year franchise. Joe Burrow has 13 touchdowns against no picks while posting 100 plus quarterback ratings in every game since. Not only does Burrow look more confident and in control, but the entire offense has taken off.
Seemingly year after year, the teams that get hot, with hot quarterbacks go deep in the playoffs. Who is hotter right now than Joe Burrow? NO ONE.
The Titans’ defense should be having nightmares about the prospect of Burrow running them across the Cumberland and up Lower Broadway Saturday. Could we then call him “Broadway Joe”? Wait, pretty sure that’s been used already.
How will Zac Taylor call Saturday’s game? Will he continue to trust Burrow and let him change plays and distribute the ball as he sees fit?
If Taylor wants to continue this run, he better. How many times during the Dalton era did we see Andy walk to the line of scrimmage and look absolutely confused and terrified? Far, far too many.
Rewatching the Raider game, all I see in Burrow is a player who knows exactly what the defense is doing on every play. That is crazy for a second-year player. Zac Taylor should, and I believe, will unleash Joe Burrow once again. This team will go as far as “Broadway Joe”, my bad, Joey Franchise will take them Expect another efficient, smart commanding game from Joe Burrow.
There you go Bengal fans. Three big questions the Bengals must answer against the Titans. If Zac Taylor and company can successfully answer these questions we can talk about a chance for a Super Bowl berth. Fingers crossed Who Dey faithful!
