Von/Doom/Ayers/Wolfe, hell even Unrein had a very nice play in the first quarter where he twisted inside and pushed the G right into Dalton's lap.
And Cincy has one of the top pass rushing defenses in the league? GTFO!
wonder how much of that is due to Koppen? Seems like the line is gelling with him.
