Joe Burrow’s season is over, but the Bengals’ season is not. So what can this team do without their star quarterback?
John Sheeran and Matt Minich talk about today’s matchup with the New York Giants, including who will start in Burrow’s place and other updates to the lineup as we get you ready for kickoff.
Join us for the Cincy Jungle Pregame Tailgate Show brought to you by Narragansett Beer live at noon Eastern.
It sounds like the Bengals will be turning to Brandon Allen as their starting quarterback. We will talk about what Allen can do against this Giants defense and let you know if the team surprises us by putting Ryan Finley out with the 1st team for pregame warm-ups.
In his three starts for the Bengals last year, Finley’s best plays were passes to Tyler Boyd. Brandon Allen found his success when he targeted Courtland Sutton. Can A.J. Green, Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, Giovani Bernard, and Drew Sample step up their game enough to help the backup quarterback find success?
Bobby Hart returns to a starting role at right tackle. Could there be other changes on the offensive line? Can this group get the run game going and give the quarterback enough time to throw?
The Bengals have rostered two kickers almost all season. After a dismal from performance from Randy Bullock last week, will they finally give Austin Seibert a try?
The defense has had flashes of success this season, but these have been overshadowed by big mistakes and bad drives late in the half. Can they keep the Giants in check and give the team a chance of winning the game? Can they finally play a full 60 minutes?
All these questions and more will be discussed in the 12th edition of our pre-game show!
