What a way for the Cincinnati Bengals to start their 2018 season. A year removed from one of their worst season-opening performances in team history, this year’s squad gave us one of the most electric results in recent memory. Even with an 11-point Youth Vontaze Burfict Jersey win on the road, as well as overcoming a 13-point second-half deficit, things weren’t all rosy in the Cincinnati’s victory. Here are the best and worst from the team’s 34-23 win over the Colts in the season-opener. The good:Joe Mixon: Though he had a bigger number of scrimmage yards in a game last year, it’s hard not to call Mixon’s performance against the Colts as his best as a pro. Perhaps that’s in the facet of overall consistency. He was a dual-threat on Sunday, giving Indianapolis’ defense fits. He finished with 17 carries for 95 yards (5.6 average) and a touchdown, along with five catches for 54 yards. Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap: The Bengals used a lot of rotations up front, but it was their two stars on the defensive line that provided the biggest boosts. Atkins was a major factor in holding the Colts to just 3.4 yards per carry on the ground and had a sack of Andrew Luck. Meanwhile, it was a roller coaster of a day for Dunlap, who ended up getting riled up after a certain questionable penalty was called against him. He used that anger towards team production, ending with a sack, a defended pass and two total tackles. P.S. — Get used to being frustrated in watching pro football this year, as this is now a penalty in today’s NFL:Special teams: Randy Bullock hasn’t been fully embraced by the fan base, but after a solid 2017 campaign, statistically-speaking, he started 2018 on a similar note. He finished 4-of-4 on extra points and 2-of-2 on field goals, with a massive one in the fourth quarter. Kevin Huber also had a nice day, with two punts averaging 50 yards per kick, while Alex Erickson also had a nice 28-yard kick return. Coming back from a large second half deficit: For about two and a half quarters, this had all of the style of a 2017 disappointment. Yet, inexplicably, the team metaphorically tightened their laces and got to work. The “changes” we have heard so much about this offseason began to take shape. Big plays in the passing game, improvements in the rushing offense and creating turnovers on defense were all part of a 24-point second half by the Bengals. Preston Brown and Nick Vigil: Unfortunately, Brown’s day was cut short with an injury, but he was active. Yes, he allowed a couple of frustrating underneath completions, but he had a gigantic first quarter interception to go along with five total tackles. Vigil may have had his coming out party against the Colts. He led the team in tackles with 11, with a couple of them going for a loss.Cordy Glenn: When you don’t hear an offensive lineman’s name very often during a game, that’s often a good thing. Glenn wasn’t highlighted very much by the announcers, but held his own in pass protection. The big man also aided greatly in the run game. Check out Joe Mixon’s gains versus the Colts and how able the left side was at springing big plays. Yes, Billy Price and Alex Redmond had some nice pull blocks on a couple of occasions, but Glenn was a force on the left side. The bad:Scheme and execution with Giovani Bernard: For all of the success Mixon had on Sunday Youth Preston Brown Jersey , Bernard had just as many struggles. We’re not sure if it’s because of the styles of the respective runners, but the Bengals’ line will need to adjust to No. 25. Bernard struggled to find any room at all, running once for minus-two yards and grabbing one reception for 11 yards. It will get better for Bernard going forward, we presume, but not a great output in packages designed for the versatile back in Week 1. The right side of the offensive line: Even though the line showed improvement overall, Redmond and Bobby Hart struggled on Sunday. Hart got manhandled by former Bengals’ defensive end, Margus Hunt, as he racked up two sacks on Sunday (he had just 1.5 in four seasons with the Bengals). As seen above in the tweet from Adam Spinks, they were able in the run game, but not necessarily the strong points. Both Redmond and Hart had penalties called against them as well. Disparity of total plays: In some ways, it’s a miracle that the Bengals left Lucas Oil Stadium victorious. One of the ominous stat lines was in the amount of offensive plays called by each team. Indianapolis ran 77 plays to the Bengals’ 50, which is startling. However, it was in the Bengals’ ability to get big plays on offense and defense that got them the win. After all, even though the Colts ran 27 more plays, they only had 50 more total yards (380 to 330).The ugly:Inability to cover tight ends...still: Luck attempted to kill the Bengals in a death by a thousand paper-cuts, given the dink-and-dunk nature of the Colts offense. The tight ends feasted on the Bengals’ defense, which has been a bug-a-boo for this team for a long time. Jack Doyle had seven catches for 60 yards, while Eric Ebron had for grabs for 51 yards and a score. Even on the big play by Fejedelem, Doyle was set to convert a massive 15-yard third down. Teryl Austin needs to fix this in a hurry, as the tight end-heavy Ravens come to town on Thursday. A near-loss from high-completion plays: To piggy-back on the previous point, Luck was all but poised to write a great NFL headline via high-percentage passes. In his first game back in over a year, Luck threw 53 passes, but completed them at a staggering 74% rate (39 completions). Again, Austin needs to get to work here. Teams will undoubtedly use this method until the Bengals’ defense shows it can regularly clamp up on a variety of plays. Four dropped interception opportunities: Austin has preached the need for game-changing plays and the Bengals had their chances on a number of occasions on Sunday. Whether it was because of rusty throws from Luck, or being in the right place at the right time, Cincinnati’s defense didn’t make some of the plays they needed to. Dre Kirkpatrick let two interception opportunities go through his hands, while Vigil dropped a difficult one as well. And, despite Dunlap’s great afternoon, he did have one that hit him in the throat in the fourth quarter. Imagine if Cincinnati had just one of these potential turnovers.NFL fantasy football waiver wire: 7 adds and 4 drops for Week 5 NFL Week 4 is wrapping up, so it’s time for a look at the fantasy football waiver wire moves you need to make for Week 5. Fantasy Football Week 5 AddsPatriots RB Sony MichelWith Rex Burkhead now on injured reserve, the Patriots rolled with Sony Michel as the top back against the Dolphins. The first-round rookie responded with 112 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries. James White remained in his pass-catching role and had just eight runs in the blowout win, so Michel should keep getting a good workload Youth Bobby Hart Jersey , making him the top add to make for Week 5. Jaguars WR Dede WestbrookThe Jaguars’ enigmatic offense finally got going against the Jets, and Dede Westbrook helped lead the way with his career day. The second-year receiver finished with nine catches on 13 targets for 130 yards. He even added a run for 11 yards in. It’s always tricky to rely on a pass-catcher who plays with Blake Bortles, but Westbrook looks like a good PPR receiver moving forward. Seahawks RB Mike DavisAnother week, another new running back stepping up in Seattle. This time, it’s Mike Davis, who gashed the Cardinals for 101 yards and two scores on 21 runs while catching four balls for 21 yards. He had just three carries in his previous two games. Chris Carson is out with an injury, and Rashad Penny continues to be brought along slowly, so the veteran Davis could hold on to his new role for a while. Bears WR Taylor GabrielBreak out the Bears, who romped the Buccaneers 48-10 in Week 4, and Taylor Gabriel was a big reason why. The veteran speedster finished with seven grabs on seven targets for 104 yards and two scores. He showed he can be a viable fantasy option in Atlanta, and it looks like he’s doing the same in Chicago. Browns RB Nick ChubbWhile Baker Mayfield is getting all the pub in Cleveland, Nick Chubb was the star in Week 4 as he gashed the Raiders for two long touchdown runs. He had his first career 100-yard game and showed he needs to be getting more snaps in the Browns’ offense. However, Carlos Hyde is still going to get a healthy amount of snaps, so Chubb is more of a high-upside handcuff for now. Steelers TE Vance McDonaldThe Steelers are starting rely more and more on Vance McDonald as the No. 1 tight end. He’s been battling Jessie James for that spot, but McDonald is starting to establish himself as the more consistent option. McDonald is probably one of the better waiver wire tight ends available right now if you’re hurting at the position. Colts WR Chester RogersThe Colts offense is slowly rounding back into form with Andrew Luck now back at the helm. That’s beginning to make No. 2 receiver Chester Rogers a viable fantasy option. Against the Texans in Week 4, Rogers finished with eight grabs on 11 targets for 85 yards. But a big reason why Rogers’ stock is up is T.Y. Hilton was lost to a hamstring injury that will likely cost him at least one game, so Rogers is the top receiver for now.Fantasy Football Week 5 Drops Bengals TE Tyler EifertThis one really stings. Just as Eifert was getting back to being one of the game’s best tight ends, a broken ankle ends his season after just four games. He finishes the season with 17 grabs for 179 yards and a touchdown, which he caught in Atlanta before suffering his injury. Hopefully he gets back to form in 2019. If you had Eifert, keep an eye on C.J. Uzomah. He caught five passes for 64 yards and a score in his previous two games, so he may become fantasy relevant with Eifert now out. Ryan Fitzpatrick Woof. After tossing three picks against the Steelers, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw another against the Bears while completing just 9/18 passes for 126 yards in a 48-10 loss. He was eventually replaced with Jameis Winston, which all but confirms Fitzmagic 2018 is over.Patriots WR Chris HoganThe Patriots offense finally got going against the Dolphins, but they did so without Chris Hogan making much of an impact, which has been the case all season. Through four games, Hogan now has just eight catches, and that was with Julian Edelman suspended. Edelman is now set to return from his four-game ban, so Hogan is an easy call to drop. Seahawks TE Will Dissly Sunday was a bad day for tight ends. In addition to Eifert, rising star Will Dissey is out for the year after suffering a torn patella tendon against the Cardinals. He caught two touchdowns in his first two games as he built good chemistry with Russell Wilson, so hopefully that will continue in 2019.

I can show you all the sports, strength, and even passion. Welcome, I sincerely serve you, everything is for you. You can call me "Lin" and welcome to our sports kingdom——http://www.chicagobearsteamonline.com We will be happy to serve you.
