Bengals Week 2 snap count distribution: Tyler Eifert gets a huge bump in play time

Bengals Week 2 snap count distribution: Tyler Eifert gets a huge bump in play time

The Bengals were very cautious with Tyler Eifert in Week 1, but they let him loose for the home opener. The Bengals saw some young players get an increase in snaps after several big contributors went down during the game. It was also nice to see those players make an impact with those snaps as well. Guys replacing Preston Brown and Michael Johnson really helped put the Bengals over the top. Shawn Williams return after being ejected last week also ended up being a huge difference as well. Here are the snap count takeaways for Week 2: Michael Johnson (4) left the game early, which opened...

Shawn Williams doesn’t know how he was supposed to hit Andrew Luck

Shawn Williams doesn’t know how he was supposed to hit Andrew Luck

Hint: Not like he did. Shawn Williams made an egregious hit on Andrew Luck on Sunday that led to an ejection, and rightfully so. Don’t tell Shawn Williams that. The Bengals safety spoke with the media Monday following his controversial hit on Luck during Sunday’s 34-23 win over the Colts. While the helmet to helmet hit on a defenseless Luck was clearly illegal, Williams doesn’t know what he was supposed to do differently. Bengals S Shawn Williams said any contact to Andrew Luck's head was incidental. He said he hasn't heard about a suspension but will try to prepare for the game...

Shawn Williams gives big thank you hug to Bengals MVP Clayton Fejedelem

The only reason Fejedelem was in a position to make the Bengals’ game-winning play was because Williams was ejected from the game. With 3 minutes and 10 seconds remaining in the first quarter of the Bengals vs. Colts Week 1 game, starting safety Shawn Williams was ejected from the game due to an unnecessary hit on Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck. In came Clayton Fejedelem, the Bengals’ special teams ace, to replace him. That wasn’t really good news for the Bengals at the time, but it turned into a major blessing. With the Colts charging down the field attempting to take back the...

Bengals rally from behind, upset Andrew Luck’s return on the road with 34-23 victory

What a roller coaster ride. Football is back and the Bengals are 1-0! Week 1 for the Cincinnati Bengals got off to an interesting start to say the least. In the first two minutes of the game, the first pass attempts from quarterbacks Andy Dalton and Andrew Luck were intercepted. But the wild ride was just beginning. The Bengals won the game 34-23, thanks to Clayton Fejedelem who became a key component in the win due to starting safety Shawn Williams’ ejection. But let’s back up because so much happened to get the Bengals to 1-0 to start the year. Following a 10-play drive from the...

Bengals S Shawn Williams ejected vs. Colts for hit on Andrew Luck

Shawn Williams tried to take Andrew Luck’s head off, and he paid for it. We have our first ejection of the 2018 season, and unfortunately, it involves Bengals safety Shawn Williams. The starting safety was tossed out of the Bengals’ Week 1 matchup with the Colts for an illegal hit on quarterback Andrew Luck. It happened on a third-down run by Luck, and as he was starting to slide, Williams launched right into Luck. Initially, the referees only flagged Williams for unnecessary roughness. But after making the call, the referees gathered and decided to eject Williams from the game....

A young Bengals roster has decided who will represent them every week this season.

Film room: The time is now for Jessie Bates

Jessie Bates has done enough in preseason to make the Bengals feel comfortable letting long-time starter George Iloka go. Rookie safety Jessie Bates III was one of the first Bengals off the bench in their preseason opener against the Chicago Bears, and he continued to see reps with the first team in the Bengals’ second preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. In the week between the two contests, head coach Marvin Lewis praised his ability and promise and with the release of George Iloka it has become clear why Bates was getting so much work with the first unit. The second round pick...
