The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Battlin’ Brownies

John and Anthony recap the loss to the Jets and play a little game called “What did we learn?”, while also providing a Stat of the Week and previewing the huge next chapter in “The Battle of Ohio”.

The Bengals took one on the chin in the Big Apple this week, but look to rebound against their most hated foe. Joe Burrow is winless in his two starts against the Cleveland Browns, while Zac Taylor is just 1-3.

If Cincinnati is to make a hard playoff push, this is a game that will define it. We talk about the loss to the Jets and the lessons learned there, while also providing a “Stat of the Week” and previewing the upcoming “Battle of Ohio”.

Some of the items on tap:

  • Cincinnati failed to execute the basics against the Jets and that was a big reason for the loss.
  • Criticism for the lack of execution also centers around the game plan and the lack of adjustments.
  • Do those lack of adjustments play into the “pretenders” argument in this loss, or was this just a hiccup by an otherwise solid Bengals season?
  • Mike White set records and was the center of our dubious “Stat of the Week”.
  • What are the strategies for success in Week 9?
  • Odell Beckham, Jr. appears to be on the outs with the Cleveland Browns. If he is released this week, could it actually be a benefit to the Browns against the Bengals?
  • The Bengals are pretty healthy going into this week, while Cleveland is banged up.
  • And more!
