Three Down Look: Bengal’s playoff slot sealed after losing 21-16 to Cleveland

CINCINNATI – The Cincinnati Bengals lost on Sunday however won all over beyond First Energy Stadium. Cincinnati fell 21-16 versus Cleveland, however they are still playing a playoff video game versus the Raiders this Saturday.

Brandon Allen laid an egg while Ja’Marr Chase set another record.

Here’s our three down take a look at the Cincinnati routine season ending on the coasts of Lake Erie.

Brandon Allen freezes

Cincinnati banked the majority of the essential beginners in the video game, which didn’t assist Allen discover the rhythm. He didn’t appear like the quick-thinking passer-by who led a number of Bengal success last season.

Allen completed 15-for-29 passing for 136 backyards, a goal and 4 sacks. He scored an overall of -8.6 EPA in the video game. The numbers matched an unsightly clock. Allen had a hard time to bring video games in on time, was extremely unreliable even when the receivers were opened, and simply never ever looked prepared.

The Sunday program was possibly a higher true blessing than anything else for Joe Burrow’s MVP case. The Bengals franchise’s quarterback is undoubtedly on a various level than Allen, however the latter obviously requires an entire brand-new offensive in order to have an opportunity to survive.

His head was undersea all afternoon on an uncommon ineffective day that passed from this offense. Allen’s 4.7 net backyards per effort was the 2nd most affordable in the season from a Bengals passerby. Burrow scored 4.03 net backyards per effort versus the Las Vegas Raiders.

Markus Bailey and Mike Daniels Pop

Sunday was an opportunity for a few of the players in the to demonstrate how much effort they have actually put in this season. Markus Bailey and Mike Daniels have actually gained the fruits of their several years of work.

Bailey was a much larger part of the protective rotation than Daniels, and he’s tested why he is worthy of more opportunities. The linebacker led Cincinnati with 11 deals with in his profession and scored a big pass disturbance at a loss zone that got Mike Hilton and returned to midfield.

Right in front of Bailey was a starving Daniels who had not seen protective snaps this season however tape-recorded three runs and one deal with for the loss. Daniels put in additional work after each exercise while constructing his body. The person appears like a Mac truck and might be a great runner for the next month if the luck of the injuries disappears.

Daniels was the only Bengal to deal with a loss while Wyatt Ray made a sack of stripes and encountered Henderson’s tray for a goal.

Chasing history and locking out playoff satanic forces

One of the Mt. Rushmore players from this Bengals season got dressed on Sunday. Chase captured 2 passes for 26 backyards, sufficient to break Chad Johnson’s single-season franchise record (1,440 backyards).

Chase completed the season with 81 captures, 1,455 backyards, and 13 goals at 18 backyards per catch. It’s the very best reception season in the team’s history, and on top with Randy Moss as the very best novice reception season ever. He completed 18 backyards behind the NFL novice record for single-season backyards from Houston’s Bill Groman (1,473 in 1960).

Now comes the minute Cincinnati fans have actually waited 32 years for. The Raiders are coming to town for a time-out on Saturday and lost to the exact same Bengals team by three points at the start of the season.

Burrow is not Andy Dalton; Chase isn’t AJ Green and DJ Reader isn’t Geno Atkins. Scars from the playoff past will and ought to not be a problem in this video game. Cincinnati opened as a 6.5 point preferred, and appropriately so. They have the most popular quarterback in the AFC, a video game in the aspects, and a Raiders team with a short hiatus to invest mentally after Sunday night’s impressive win in overtime.

Just like in Baltimore a couple of weeks earlier, there are no reasons for loss. Get it prepared and get ready for a journey to Nashville or Kansas City.
