After watching their best player walk to the locker room on the first series and three more starters leave for the rest of the game during the first half, the Bengals dug deep on Bloody Sunday and offered one of the more impressive efforts of the Marvin Lewis Era as they took a 24-10 victory over the Falcons in the Paul Brown Stadium opener before 58,574.
The Bengals should take the game tape from Sunday’s 24-10 win over the Falcons and sell it as a “How to Tackle” instructional video.
Expect the Bengals to make some roster moves at some point with cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris slated to return off NFL suspension this week.
It doesn’t take a withered sage to figure out the Bengals have their most dynamic pair of running backs since, dare we breathe it, James Brooks and Elbert Woods before these kids were born.
Paul Brown Stadium may not be where quarterbacks go to die. But their stats usually get last rites before the Bengals finish off the decimal point. Now stuff and mount the passer rating of Falcons Pro Bowler Matt Ryan next to the helmets of Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco, and Andrew Luck.
