CINCINNATI (AP)A season honoring some of the Bengals’

Post by liny195 » Mon Jan 06, 2020 7:23

greatest players has started with one of the worst losses they’ve ever experienced. And there’s no quick fix to the biggest problems. The Bengals honored some of the best players in their history at halftime of the season opener Sunday Authentic Jarrett Stidham Jersey , the start of their 50th season in franchise history. The current Bengals wound up shut out in a home opener for the first time. Baltimore’s 20-0 win was one for the record books. Coach Marvin Lewis called it one of his most disappointing games. ”We didn’t score any points – that’s the biggest reason,” he said Monday. The Bengals host Houston (0-1) on Thursday night, leaving them little time to fix shortcomings. A lot figured into their first shutout at Paul Brown Stadium since 2001, two years before Lewis arrived. The worst moments were on an offense that was considered the strength of the team. The Bengals managed only 221 yards, their lowest total since a 24-3 home loss to the Browns in 2014, a span of 42 games. During that Thursday night loss, Andy Dalton had his worst passer rating – 2.0 – while throwing for only 86 yards with three interceptions. Against the Ravens, he finished with his second-worst passer rating at 28.4 while matching his career high with four interceptions . He also lost a fumble. It wasn’t only the quarterback. The Bengals knew heading into the season that their fate would rest largely with an inexperienced offensive line. They lost left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right guard Kevin Zeitler – their best linemen – in free agency and decided to replace them with unproven, young players. There’s no easy fix to what happened Sunday. Dalton was sacked five times and was under constant pressure. The Ravens held their ground and batted away passes. The running game managed only 77 yards total. Cincinnati gained 90 yards in the second half, continuing its pattern of struggling after halftime. The offense never got into a consistent flow last season Jarrett Stidham Jersey Boys , Ken Zampese’s first as offensive coordinator. Seven times, they scored seven points or fewer in the second half, getting blanked twice. Zampese used his running backs interchangeably Sunday. Giovani Bernard was in for 29 plays, rookie Joe Mixon for 22, and Jeremy Hill for 10. Bernard had seven carries for 40 yards, with 23 of them on one play. Mixon carried eight times for 9 yards. Hill had six carries for 26 yards. Lewis defended the mix of running backs on Monday. ”I think it was fine,” he said. Injuries contributed to the struggles last season, when Bernard, receiver A.J. Green and tight end Tyler Eifert missed significant time. The Bengals expected big things with all of them back, but instead had one of their worst games ever. ”It’s a reality check Infant Jarrett Stidham Jersey ,” Hill said. SHUTOUTS The Bengals have been blanked 19 times in their history, six times at home. They’ve sustained back-to-back shutouts only once, in 2000. They lost at Jacksonville 13-0 and at Baltimore 37-0 in the second and third games that season, prompting coach Bruce Coslet to resign. Two members of that team – center Rich Braham and linebacker Takeo Spikes – will be among those honored at halftime on Thursday. PACMAN RETURNS Cornerback Adam ”Pacman” Jones is eligible to return Thursday after serving a one-game suspension for his offseason misdemeanor conviction. Linebacker Vontaze Burfict has two more games on his suspension for his latest egregious hit. EXPECT THE ROOKIE Lewis is planning on rookie Deshaun Watson starting at quarterback for Houston. He took over after halftime in a 29-7 loss to Jacksonville on Sunday. ”I’d expect Deshaun to be the quarterback,” Lewis said. ”I’ll be surprised if he’s not.” INJURY UPDATES Lewis declined to provide updates on RG Trey Hopkins (left knee) or DE Michael Johnson (concussion). Both were injured Sunday. — Let’s find out who stood out today."

Even though the Patriots obviously still have a long way to go, they can feel good about Monday’s session as a whole.With that in mind, let’s take a look at some winners and losers:Winner: QB Tom BradyNew England’s offense looked good for most of today’s session, and it all started with Tom Brady. The greatest quarterback of all time Jarrett Stidham Jersey Draft , who turned 42 over the weekend, was on point for most of the session and also spread the football around well: he targeted ten different pass catchers during team portions and completed 19 of 27 pass attempts during 7-on7s and 11-on-11s. Brady’s favorite target — undrafted rookie wide receiver Jakobi Meyers — finished the day with four catches, as the duo is continuing to successfully build its chemistry.Winner: DE Shilique Calhoun & DE Chase WinovichA pair of young edge defenders also had a successful day against Detroit. Shilique Calhoun saw considerable action with the first-team defense and looked good during 1-on-1 drills; he certainly is stating his case to earn the final roster spot at the position. Third-round rookie Chase Winovich does not have to worry about making the team — he is a lock due to his draft status — but he is making plays nevertheless: while not quite as active as Calhoun, Winovich looked solid and would have taken down the opposing quarterback for two sacks during two-minute work had he been allowed to finish the plays.Losers: WR Dontrelle Inman & WR Ryan DavisThe recent emergence of Jakobi Meyers is putting pressure on the other depth wide receivers to keep up if they want to make the team. So far it looks as if two of them are unable to do that: neither Dontrelle Inman nor Ryan Davis saw much action today. While offseason acquisition Inman’s lone target from Brady during team periods fell incomplete, undrafted rookie Davis was used sparingly in 11-on-11s and also did not return any kicks. Their days in New England appear to be limited.Winner: The offensive lineWhile not all was perfect for the unit up front — left tackle Isaiah Wynn did not participate during team drills; he was again replaced by Dan Skipper — it did have a pretty good day overall, especially in the ground game. At times, New England’s offensive line was able to open enormous holes for the team’s running backs to exploit. While the Lions were missing some key defensive linemen, including ex-Patriot Trey Flowers, it is certainly encouraging to see Dante Scarnecchia’s unit perform well in this controlled environment.Winner: LB Jamie Collins Sr.When New England reacquired Jamie Collins in free agency, few knew what to expect. Would the 29-year-old look like the playmaker he was early during his first tenure with the Patriots Jarrett Stidham NFL Jersey , or like the high-priced disappointment he was with the Cleveland Browns? Early on in training camp, he overwhelmingly looks like the former. Today, for example, Collins forced yet another fumble when he knocked the football loose during a 7-on-7 drill. He is starting to look like a lock to make the roster — and a potential big-play asset this season.Winner: DT Byron CowartSince returning from a quad injury that cost him three practices early during training camp, Byron Cowart has stringed together some solid performances. Today, he took another step forward: the fifth-round rookie saw some action with the first-string defense and handled himself well against strong competition. While it is dangerous to read too much into usage at this point in the process, Cowart at least appears to have bounced back nicely from his previous injury.
