Well, for those who actually took away “moral victories” from the Bengals’ performance last week against the 49ers, those were few and far between this past Sunday. Cincinnati got trounced on its home field by San Francisco, as solid performances were tough to come by from the home team.
Even so, there were a couple of players whose performances helped the team’s cause. Cast your vote and sound off on your winner for the Bengals Week 2 MVP!
Andy Dalton: The Bengals’ quarterback did have a bad interception right before halftime, but he fought through poor protection to make some nice plays as well. He finished 26-of-42 (62 percent) for 311 yards, two touchdowns and the pick.
Tyler Boyd: It’s been a nice rise to stardom for Boyd over the past two seasons, who was rightfully rewarded for his boost in play this summer. He did a little bit of everything this week, hauling in 10 catches for 122 yards.
John Ross III: The third-year receiver has already surpassed his 2018 receiving yardage through just two games this year. Ross had a 66-yard touchdown reception on a slant when the game was out of hand, but had a couple of other nice plays as well. He finished with four grabs for 112 yards and the score.
Geno Atkins: Don’t let Atkins’ paltry four total tackles fool you. He was a constant force in San Francisco’s backfield, inciting holding penalties and disrupting plays that his teammates failed to clean up on the day.
