How the Bengals gave away a victory

Combine a 3-to-1 turnover ratio, twice as many penalties, and playing on the road, and it all added up to enough to allow the Bengals to give away a victory to the Chicago Bears.

There are so many culprits at which fingers can be pointed in trying to determine how the Bengals lost to such a lousy NFC team.

Some reasons for which blame can be assigned in how the Bengals snatched defeat from the hands of victory include:

Andy Dalton’s 2 Interceptions

The highly touted Defensive Line’s lack of sacks (zero)

The offensive coach’s unwillingness to get the ball to their Giovani Bernard (the top RB taken in the 2013 draft)

Sanu’s untimely fumble after gaining a first down

8 penalties for 84 yards (such as Orson’s lousy attempt at a block, which killed a 1st down and resulted in a punt)

The coach’s lack of time management before halftime, and their quick loss of timeouts in the 2nd half Rey Maualuga being Rey Maualuga
