After playing their first two games in five days, the Cincinnati Bengals are back on a regular schedule. And while being 0-2 for the third time in four years sucks, at least they get to play another 0-2 team.

Before we get to this week’s matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles, Anthony and John are recap the loss to the Cleveland Browns, give their thoughts on the current injury front, and reveal their stats of the week.

Here is some of what was on tap on this week’s Orange and Black Insider podcast:

  • The duo talked about which units and some individual players in which they were either discouraged or encouraged. Joe Burrow, Drew Sample and Fred Johnson were some of the specific names discussed.
  • Each host provided a “Stat of the Week”, based on last week’s result. Anthony noted the team’s fourth down conversions, while John provided a dubious run defense statistic by the Bengals against Cleveland.
  • What should we expect from Auden Tate this week, after being inactive last week and his agent going public with frustration?
  • Carson Wentz has had a pretty terrible start to the 2020 season with the Eagles. We share some eye-popping numbers and wonder if this is a continuing trend, or if he’ll get back on track this week.
  • Is this the week guys like Carlos Dunlap and A.J. Green break out and lead the team to its first win of the year?
