Twists are the enemy of the Bengals’ offensive line. Here’s how they can fight back.

One of the biggest plays of the game was the strip sack that set up the Browns with first-and-goal.

The Browns ran a twist with their defensive line that caused confusion for Bobby Hart and Fred Johnson on this play, but they successfully picked it up at another point in the game. Jonah Williams and Michael Jordan faced the same twist in this game.

What went wrong on that play and how did they successfully pick it up up this twist later?

How could they put themselves in a better position?

I answer these questions in this video.
