with the Invoices And the heads playing well this season, Bengals They slowly became the forgotten contender in the AFC, but against hawks On Sunday, the defending AFC Champions let the rest of the NFL know they remain one of the best teams in the league.
The Bengals are at their best when Joe Burrow presents his “A” game, and Burrow definitely brought his “A” game on Sunday. Joe Cole threw for 481 yards and three touchdowns during a 35-17 home win over the Falcons.
Burrow’s passing total was the highest in the NFL this year, the second-highest in his career and the third-highest total in franchise history (he scored and scored his team’s career record in 2021 when he threw for 525 yards against crows).
The thing that makes the Bengals offense so dangerous is that they can score from anywhere on the field, and Burrow proved that when Tyler Boyd hit 60 yards with his third pass into the game.
When it comes to scoring on deep ball, there is no better team than the Bengals. This throw was the 12th time in the past two seasons that Burrow has thrown a TD pass for 50 yards or more. To put that into perspective, no other quarterback has done it eight times. When it comes to touching the ball for 50 yards or more over the past two seasons, no one is better at scoring on the long ball than Ja’Marr Chase (6) and Tyler Boyd (4), who are both number one and two in the NFL. .
Chase didn’t add to his points total on Sunday, but he scored two goals that both landed for more than 30 yards. In the first play of the second quarter, Burrow threw a chase of the absolute dime that went for 32 yards:
Chase also had a score of 41 yards in the game on a day when he finished eight catches for 130 yards. Not to be outdone by Boyd, she actually topped Chase in receiving a total of 155 yards on eight catches.
The Bengals came only seven yards away having three different receivers ending at over 100 yards. Tee Higgins had five passes for 93 yards in the game. This is what makes the Bengals offense so serious: when the three receivers are in good health, it is nearly impossible to stop the offense. When you throw Hayden Hurst (six grabs for 48 yards), Joe Mixon (three grabs for 33) and an offensive line that’s slowly improving, the Bengals are looking better and better every week.
The Bengals have flown under the radar for the first seven weeks of the season, and to be honest, they probably like it that way. The defending Conference champions usually have a goal on the back the following season, but somehow, that goal ended up on the Bills and the Chiefs in a season when the Bengals were on a cool run.
After a slow start to the season, the Bengals’ offense has finally found its groove, and that makes the Cincinnati one of the scariest teams in the NFL, and fear fits this team—their next game in Halloween.
