What I did and didn’t like – Bengals Vs. Ravens

The Bengals had a chance to extend their winning streak against the Ravens on Sunday with a win in Baltimore.  They had a chance to win the game in the final seconds even though they had no business being in the game.  You have to wonder, was this a partial effort from the Ravens? Did the Bengals pack it in?

 

What I Liked:

  – How can you not like what you saw from Carlos Dunlap and Geno Atkins?  The Bengals defensive front looks really strong heading into next year.

 - The young receivers once again held their own and made plays when it mattered.

 - The Bengals running backs again made tough yards when needed.

 - Chase Coffman is no Gresham, but he did play a good game.

 

What I Didn’t like

 - When you get your chance to play Simpson, hold onto the ball. Those fumbles were back breakers and neither one was necessary, hold the ball.

 - Same for you Carson, unexcusable for a veteran to cough it up like that.

 - Also, make a play at the end of the game number 9. Whether you gut it out and dive for the yards, or throw it, it has to be a little better than that.
