Bengals at Eagles
Anyone watching this game?
I'm watching Foles & he looks solid. Not RG III/Andy Luck solid, but solid. Making some really nice throws. This kid, Bryce Brown is special. They have spurts of playing really good football. The defense has been outstanding, even though they've given up 34 points.
The problem, is that the offense keeps making mistakes. Not little problems, big problems. They've turned the ball over 4 times & when they do put a drive together, they screw it up & come away with field goals (x2) instead of TDs (1).
The Bengals Defense is all right, but their getting pushed around by the Eagles line. Pac-man is stupid, but he's playing good ball. Nothing special, none of the Bengals defenders are doing anything special today.
But the Eagles are getting blown out. Because of the mistakes made by Philly more than the stellar play by the Bengals.
Now we're about to play the Colts. & I see this game going the way I think our game will go. The Bengals aren't spectacular on offense today. But they're not making mistakes, we don't make mistakes. The Eagles are hot & cold, making mistakes that are helping the Bengals run the score up.
& it's not like the Bengals have their foot on the throat or anything. They're not doing anything special, or having to make spectacular plays, they're just being conservative, letting the Eagles come to them.
34-13 with 11 minutes to go. I can see us getting that kind of lead on the Colts. I don't see our defense (as bad as it is) giving it up in 11 minutes regardless how conservative we go on offense.
