Bengals vs Bills Preview
The Bengals had a solid showing despite a one-point loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 1. That could not be said about the walloping they took last week at the hands of the 49ers last week, 41-17.
Cincy was gashed for 572 total yards, including 259 on the ground. It was the worst defensive showing in a home opener ever for the Begnals.
“There is no gray,” Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo said. “We screwed it up. It’s not just the players; it’s us coaches as well. This is a performance-based business and we did not perform at all (Sunday).”
The team is still awaiting the return of perennial Pro Bowl wide receiver A.J. Green, who suffered an ankle injury on the first day of training camp. Green is out of his walking boot but the updates have been few and far between. The latest came from Zac Taylor, who said he hopes Green can play an “early portion of the schedule.”
Meanwhile, the Bills have been rolling behind Josh Allen, knocking off both the Giants and Jets at MetLife Stadium to open the season.
In a 28-14 win over the Giants last wee, Allen was 19 of 30 for 253 yards with a touchdown passing. Most importantly, he had no turnovers.
“He’s understanding the game a little better within the game, and what he can and can’t do,” McDermott said Monday, a day after the Bills improved to 2-0. “I think that in and of itself is a step.”
Rookie Devin Singletary rushed for 57 yards and his first career TD last week. He’s been a bright spot and leads the team with 127 rush yards, second-most among rookies. However, there’s a chance he missed the game against the Bengals with a hamstring issue.
If he’s out, veteran Frank Gore will see an uptick in carries. Gore rushed for 68 yards last week and has 14,836 career rush yards — fourth-most all-time
“We’ve got a great (running back) room, period,” Gore said. “Whatever role we all got, we’re going to try our best to do it. T.J.’s been a starter in this league, I’ve been a starter. We’ve still got to see what happens with Devin, but I think we’ve got a great group and whatever number gets called, we try our best to do the right thing.
“As a group, we just keep working and just trying to get better each week, each day, and I think we will. But I think we’ve been having some success, too. The one-two punch, me and Motor, I think we’ve been doing good together.”
The Bills are currently listed as a six-point favorite for the game with a total of 44.
