The defense is fine. Tebow is gone, so the d can give up 20 points.

When offenses run a quick no huddle, it's feast of famine for our defense.

Bolden shouldn't be on the field. He looked lost on the few plays he was on.

Bengals scored 10 points on our turnovers. Not too concerned.

The run game was the suck today. Our O line couldn't open any holes almost all day.

On the other hand NO sacks for Manning, and VonDoom pressured Dalton pretty well, got to him 4-5 times.
We have a Really good pass block line.

The D won't get much better til next year. All we can hope is this group can play pretty good most of the time. The O has to carry us.


We won that's all that matters

Cincy has very good DL players. They are stout so that didn't surprise me. When they needed the runs late in the game they were there. Willis was getting big chunks to help the clock grind down.

It looks like Cincy tried to take a page from New England. Problem is cincy is not nearly as good as New England. The speed no huddle looks to work well against the Broncos so I expect we will see more.

If the DB can catch some passes for INTs, this game is a blowout early
Not sure they can do that but they are inches away from making life alot easier for themselves

I'm not worried. Holding an opponent to 20 points on the road after two turnovers is just fine.

This game is always a battle. Highest margin of victory against this club that I can remember. Defense did well.

We won today....so, we're not that bad.

We're probably the 3rd or 4th best team in the AFC right now.

Can we improve on that...I'm not sure. That game in Baltimore will tell us a lot. If we can't go and beat the Ravens on their field...then we sure as hell can't got to NE or Houston and beat them.

Defense...needs to improve...but, so does the Offense...and Special Teams. Need to be more consistent overall!

Sure...but those turnovers were killers.

One inside the opponents 20...taking at least 3 points off the board....and then other deep in our territory, giving the opponents at least 3 points. Mistakes like those, cost teams football games.

Luckily we overcame them!

It was more that OP says D needs more work well it does but, what do they expect without another offseason . Were we awful no but, are weak in spots. So to expect a D with flaws to vastly improve or never have bad drives shouldn't be shocking when it happens.

The one that was thrown in the endzone was the worst. That made the game closer than it was.

I blame the whole series that led to the 2nd INT on that worthless POS Lance Ball. He totally crapped himself and jumped on the ball instead of letting his return man, standing right next to him, field the ball.
