SIISWIS podcast: Bengals look to take frustrations out on Broncos

The Bengals left Pittsburgh with a bitter taste in their mouths. Now they face the 2016 Super Bowl champs in their home opener. In this episode of Sorry If I Spit When I Speak, we tell you why we think they can put it all together and make a statement.

What’s the best way to put a frustrating loss behind you? By taking down the best there is. And the Bengals will have that chance this Sunday. In the Week 3 podcast of Sorry If I Spit When I Speak, we talk about the positive (and negative) takeaways from the Steelers game and provide an extensive preview of the upcoming matchup against the Denver Broncos:

It might seem that this is a bad time to face the league champions. Cincinnati has concerns on both offense and defense. The Bengals have struggled in the running game, and only have two sacks on the year (after getting 42 last year). But with the Bengals’ secondary playing the way it did against Ben Roethlisberger, it seems apparent that Trevor Siemian will struggle in Cincinnati. Meanwhile, the Broncos actually haven’t been particularly stout against the run, allowing 120 rushing yards per game. Furthermore, Jeremy Hill gashed them for 147 yards the last time these two played at Paul Brown Stadium (in Hill’s rookie year of 2014). So there’s good reason to believe that it will all come together for the Bengals on Sunday.
