The Cincinnati Bengals’ hype train was full-steam after their big win over the Baltimore Ravens, but it has come off the rails after a disappointing lose to the New York Jets.

In the aftermath of this loss, I talk about what went wrong and what it means for the rest of the season.

  • The underdog mindset.
  • Poor tackling.
  • Talent stepping up.
  • Play-calling .
  • The one adjustment that needed to be made.
  • Who is the emotional leader?
  • Playing poorly and winning is not winning.
  • That horrible Mike Hilton penalty should not have mattered.
