Steelers edge rusher T.J. Watt couldn't finish Sunday's game against the Raiders due to a groin injury, but he isn't expected to miss significant time according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. Watt's injury isn't considered serious and there's a chance he can suit up this week against the Bengals. Both teams are 1-1 on the season.
Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow has been sacked nine times in two games. Only the Jets (10) have given up more sacks in the first two weeks of the season. This isn't exactly what the Bengals were hoping for entering the season.
The Bengals have not had a COVID-19 issue through the early part of the season, but that has changed. Cincinnati announced that the team has placed offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland on its COVID-19 list.
The Chicago Bears held serve in the Windy City, blowing the Cincinnati Bengals' offense away in a 20-17 win. Joe Burrow was on his back for much of the day as Cincinnati continues lacking consistent protection for their franchise QB.
The Bengals fell to 1-1 this season following Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bears. There was some good and plenty of bad in their first road game of the season. Most of these takeaways could change after a second viewing (especially if I can look at the coaches' film).
The Bengals move to 1-1 after a rough offensive performance on Sunday. The Cincinnati Bengals faced off with the Chicago Bears in a Week 2 matchup that was quite a roller coaster ride to say the least.
The Bengals' offense struggled for most of Sunday's game against the Bears. They had four turnovers and never moved the ball consistently, finishing with just 17 points. The Bears' secondary was sitting on the Bengals' routes because they knew Cincinnati wanted to attack them with the quick passing game.
The offense has to get right quickly after a terrible performance in Chicago. Despite their best efforts in the final few minutes, the Cincinnati Bengals could not erase a terrible showing against the Chicago Bears as they drop to 1-1 on the young season.
