Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Broncos shows changes needed on offense

Bengals’ snap count distribution vs Broncos shows changes needed on offense

The Bengals have been very stubborn about making changes on offense, but if they really want a chance this season, those changes must happen. The Cincinnati Bengals have kept the hope of their season alive with a victory against the Denver Broncos. Those hopes may be on life support, but they’re still kicking. Sunday’s game was weird because it is really getting frustrating seeing offensive players not get opportunities over players who aren’t performing. On the defensive side they have slowly incorporated these younger players, and the defense has been way better because of it. The...

3 Broncos defenders stood out in loss to Bengals

3 Broncos defenders stood out in loss to Bengals

Offensively, the Broncos are broken. It’s why Mike McCoy was fired Monday, after the Broncos sixth loss in a row, a 20-17 defeat at the hands of the Cincinnati Bengals. But, defensively, Denver is still solid. We highlight three defenders who enjoyed good games on Sunday, as graded by Pro Football Focus: Aqib Talib, 80.3 overall grade Talib was on top of his game Sunday evening, finding himself covering giants in Brandon LaFell as well as A.J. Green, one of the best receivers in the NFL. Talib gave up four receptions on five targets, but for only 34 yards, and had one pass defended, too....

Alex Erickson offers high praise for Andy Dalton

Alex Erickson offers high praise for Andy Dalton

Following his first regular season touchdown, the Bengals’ receiver and kick returner had only compliments for his quarterback. Alex Erickson has made plays on occasion all season for the Cincinnati Bengals, but on Sunday in Denver he was a major part of the team’s win as he scored his first NFL regular season touchdown. Erickson had two catches in the Bengals’ win over the Broncos for 42 yards and a touchdown. Both of his catches came on third down in critical parts of the game. His first catch was his 29-yard touchdown and his second came moments before A.J. Green scored an 18-yard...

Five things we learned from the Broncos season-ending loss to the Bengals

Five things we learned from the Broncos season-ending loss to the Bengals

As it stands now the only team in the AFC with a worse record than Denver is the Cleveland Browns. The Denver Broncos are on to 2018. At least this disaster is over in quick fashion and we don’t need to fret about it anymore. It’s not a surprise for those of us who watched last season, but there’s always hope in Broncos Country. After the 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals all hope is gone. Well, not exactly, since Denver has the tie breaker over Cincinnati and the New York Giants. Why does that matter? As is stands now the Broncos would select at No. 4 in the NFL Draft. If the...

The Broncos looked sluggish in yet another loss

The Broncos looked sluggish in yet another loss

For some reason, the Denver Broncos just can’t seem to get out of their own way this season. The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher. Please subscribe to the one that fits your fancy, and also rate and review what you hear. The Denver Broncos looked sluggish. All the CBS broadcast crew seemed to talk about was how hard it is to come into the Mile High city and win. The altitude plays a major part in home field advantage. The Cincinnati Bengals were definitely gassed, but it was the Broncos that couldn’t keep up. On the @MileHighReport Radio podcast,...

Bengals Bytes (11/20): Getting motivation from the 2016 Packers

The Packers started their season 4-6 in 2016, but went on a six-game winning streak to make the playoffs. Vontaze Burfict’s huge game helps lifts the Bengals passed the Broncos. Vontaze Burfict's defensive intensity spurs Bengals to a potential season-shifting win in DenverCincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict and Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler spent three seasons as teammates at Arizona State from 2009-11, and in the time since have experienced remarkably different professional trajectories. Osweiler, once projected as a franchise quarterback, parlayed a short stint as a fill-in...

Video: Bengals patiently waited for Broncos to beat themselves

Video: Bengals patiently waited for Broncos to beat themselves

Brandon Perna of That’s Good Broncos called it right saying all the Cincinnati Bengals had to do was wait for the Denver Broncos to beat themselves. All the Cincinnati Bengals had to do to beat the Denver Broncos 20-17 was to patiently wait for their opponent to beat themselves. In another frustratingly maddening way, Denver found a loss in a game they could have won. Brandon Perna from That’s Good Broncos broke down this fairly typical and annoying type of game for Denver in 2017 in a way that is at least mildly comical. Mildly comical could also be used to describe the Broncos season.

4 takeaways from the Broncos' 20 - 17 loss to the Bengals

4 takeaways from the Broncos' 20 - 17 loss to the Bengals

After we all thought that the Denver Broncos had completely hit rock bottom, they went above and beyond the call of duty by letting a last place offense waltz into Denver to all but extinguish any playoff hopes still fizzling in the Mile High City. Both the Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals, shockingly, walked into their Week 11 matchup still in contention of making the NFL Playoffs, but for the first time since 1975, Cincinnati squeaked out a win in Denver and is now only one game behind a playoff spot… pretty incredible. Lets look at four takeaways from Denver’s sixth loss in a row. 1. The...

Broncos cannot overcome blunders by offense, lose 20-17 to Bengals

Two costly offensive blunders caused the Denver Broncos to lose to the  Cincinnati Bengals, 20-17, increasing its losing streak to six games. Special teams significantly improved over the ghastly performance last week against the New England Patriots. After the Bengals went three-and-out on its first series, Kevin Huber’s punt was blocked by Shaquil Barrett, giving the Broncos excellent field position at the Bengals 29-yard line. On third-and-three at the Bengals’ four-yard line, quarterback Brock Osweiler laser-passed directly to Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick instead of intended...

Bengals edge Broncos: 4 winners and 2 losers from win in Denver

Bengals edge Broncos: 4 winners and 2 losers from win in Denver

The Bengals are back in the playoff hunt. Yes, you read that correctly. The Cincinnati Bengals are back in the win column. It was far from pretty, but the Bengals found a way to gut out a 20-17 win at Denver. It was a game Cincinnati was in control of much of the way, despite a lackluster performance by the offense. Here is a look at our winners and losers from the big win. LOSERS The Ground Game The Bengals’ rushing offense has become arguably the worst that any NFL team has. Against the Broncos, they managed to gain just 51 yards on 21 attempts. That came one week after getting just...

C.J. Anderson devastated over fourth quarter fumble

C.J. Anderson devastated over fourth quarter fumble

One thing C.J. Anderson has a lot of is heart. He put it all out there in this one. The Denver Broncos seem to have things go wrong in very different ways during their six-game losing streak, but this fumble by C.J. Anderson against the Cincinnati Bengals was the death blow for them in their latest loss. Anderson was shaken to the bone by this one. Vontaze Burfict put his helmet in the perfect spot and there was little Anderson could have done differently to change the outcome of this play, but that didn’t matter. A devastated CJ Anderson on his fumble in the fourth:"This shit hurts...

Broncos finally, fully embraced the tank in season-ending loss to the Bengals

Now it’s time to take it a step further: John Elway should fire Vance Joseph and get ready for a clean slate in 2018. #EmbraceTheTank There were some moments you thought the Denver Broncos would find a way to screw that up, especially at the end of the game, but right on cue they finally came around and gave Broncos Country reason to cheer with a 20-17 loss. That’s quite the difference from two seasons ago when you paced and fought over close games to turn out in Denver’s favor. Make no mistake about it: A win on Sunday against the dreadful Cincinnati Bengals would have been a...

NFL Week 11: Social media reactions to Bengals’ 20-17 win over the Broncos

NFL Week 11: Social media reactions to Bengals’ 20-17 win over the Broncos

It took a valiant effort from Dre Kirkpatrick, Vontaze Burfict and Alex Erickson to bring a W back home, but the Bengals got their fifth win of the season in a place where they’ve traditionally struggled. The Bengals got back in the win column on Sunday in Denver with the team’s first victory in the Mile High City in their last 10 tries. The offense was far from efficient and the defense had problems with allowing constant third down conversions. But, the team got the job done thanks to a great endzone interception from Dre Kirkpatrick, a massive day from Vontaze Burfict, an Alex...

Instant reactions: Broncos bungle season in loss to Bengals

The Denver Broncos have now lost six games in a row. With their playoff hopes gone, it is now time to embrace the tank and look forward to the offseason. Oh how the mighty have fallen. Not too long ago, the Denver Broncos were the crème de la crème of the National Football League after earning their third Lombardi Trophy by defeating the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. Twenty-one months later, they have become one of the game’s bottom-dwelling franchises. Isn’t it funny how things can change so quickly? The Cincinnati Bengals hadn’t beat the Denver Broncos in their last ten...

NFL Week 11: High altitude but low score, Bengals barely beat Broncos, 20-17

The two quality defenses kept both struggling offenses to few points as turnovers make the difference in the Bengals’ win. Something had to give as two 3-6 teams squared up in Denver on Sunday. Both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Denver Broncos entered the game with a stretch of poor offensive performances. As bad offenses match up against good defenses, turnovers decided the outcome. The Broncos gave the ball away twice, and the Bengals scored 13 of their 20 points off of turnovers. The Bengals vs Broncos’ Week 11 game started the way one would expect: both struggling offenses were...

With Broncos 20-17 loss to Bengals, it is time to embrace the tank

The Denver Broncos controlled the entire game against the Cincinnati Bengals and still lost 20-17. It is time to embrace the tank. The Denver Broncos can find no answers to their woes as they fall 20-17 to the equally bad Cincinnati Bengals at home. The way they lost is just a microcosm of their 2017 season in which mistakes and bad luck just kills all chances of victory. At 3-7, the Broncos join a mile-long list of teams in the past who missed the playoffs. No team has made the playoffs when starting a season 3-7. It’s on to 2018 for the Broncos at this point. We should expect Paxton...

Cramps plague Bengals in 4th quarter vs Broncos

Cramps plague Bengals in 4th quarter vs Broncos

The Bengals had several costly cramps late in their matchup with the Broncos. The Cincinnati Bengals got hit hard by the cramp bug late in their matchup with the Denver Broncos. After Cincinnati took what appeared to be a commanding 10-point lead with 10 minutes to play, Denver marched right down the field on offense to score a touchdown with five minutes left. But the drive was aided greatly by several players going down with what looked like cramps. Vontaze Burfict, Chris Smith and Shawn Williams all went down with what appeared to be cramps. While they were all able to walk off the...

Denver needs to embrace the tank to ensure it gets the best draft pick. When it does, Cincinnati will make history. Good morning, Broncos Country! We will find out in a few hours if the Denver Broncos have kept the 2017 season alive or have embraced the tank. Hopefully it’s the latter. For the former to come to fruition the Broncos must win today. They have to finally put these great practices we’ve heard about the last five weeks to actually show on the field for a game.

5 questions with Bengals Wire ahead of Week 11

In anticipation of the Broncos’ Week 11 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals, we spoke with Chris Roling of Bengals Wire about how Cincinnati looks coming in to the Mile High City, and what we should expect to see on Sunday. Here is our conversation: Q: Cincinnati has seemingly been bitten by the injury bug a fair amount. With the return of John Ross, has/will this offense look any different than it did at the beginning of the season? A: Nope. John Ross dealt with nagging injuries throughout training camp, then re-injured himself leading up to Week 3. Marvin Lewis criticized him publicly...
