Bengals notes

  • The Bengals first team had five sacks last week as they ruined Josh Allen’s shot to show his stuff with the first team.
  • Andy Dalton threw two touchdowns (one to John Ross and another to A.J Green) while completing nearly 69% of his passes.
  • Joe Mixon and Giovanni Bernard struggled behind the first-team offensive line, rushing for only 10 yards on 10 carries.
  • Tyler Eifert also played his first snaps of the preseason last week while catching his first pass as well during his limited appearance.
  • Mason Schreck caught three passes for 58 yards as he’s still most definitely on the roster bubble.
  • The Bengals also failed to create a turnover. Cincinnati’s only turnover was a pass that got tipped up by Auden Tate.
