Zithers2 Posted September 22, 2018 Share Posted September 22, 2018 Last time we went up against these guys it was our franchise's only tie. Hoping to avoid the same outcome this week! No Trai Turner still (concussion) or Da'Norris Searcy (IR with second concussion this year) or Curtis Samuel ("minor heart surgery"). Damiere Byrd (knee) and Donte Jackson (hamstring) should be cleared though. Practice squad CB Josh Hawkins replaces Searcy on the roster. Hoping we can contain AJ Green and Geno Atkins. Team did well stopping Julio last week at the expense of letting everyone else get open... however I'm not sure I'd place Cincy's skill players on par with Atlanta's. Greg Van Roten and Tyler Larsen will have their hands full with Atkins and hopefully we can stick with the run game a bit more unlike last week, when we only ran 18 times and had Cam set a personal record for most completions in a game (32). Bengals will be without Joe Mixon and hopefully Gio Bernard won't have a Tevin Coleman-esque game. I have to imagine that the run defense gets back on track and last week was just an anomaly. So yeah I think we probably win this one though it'll be closer than I had imagined before the season began. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
