The Cincinnati Bengals achieved one thing they hadn’t achieved because the 2018 season on Sunday. The Bengals received their season opener, beating the Minnesota Vikings 27-24 in additional time, making this their first win in a season opener at residence since 2007. Carson Palmer was the Bengals beginning quarterback for that 27-20 defeat over the Baltimore Ravens. Another factor Cincy achieved in Week 1 is making yours really eat his lower than flattering phrases concerning the franchise. (Ed be aware: We apologize for Criss. He’s new)
In a earlier article concerning the NFL fan bases that devour probably the most beer at video games across the league, I discussed that Bengals needed to be drunk to sit down by means of a whole Bengals recreation.
“So, it is only fitting for Bengals fans to be deemed drunkest among NFL fan bases. Hell, sometimes being inebriated is a necessity when watching the Bengals, Bungal around the field as they are known to do.”
Now, the Bengals weren’t flawless in Week 1, however they did play properly sufficient to beat the Vikings. Take that nonetheless you need, however a win is a win, and the Bengals will take it together with their loyal fan base. Let’s see the Bengals hold this momentum going into Weeks 2 & 3 as they go to the Chicago Bears and AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Second-year starter Joe Burrow seemed fairly good for the Bengals, passing for 261 yards whereas finishing 70% of his passes. Burrow additionally threw two touchdowns to zero picks. Not dangerous for his first recreation again after a season-ending knee damage in his rookie yr.
There continues to be a lot room for development inside this offense, although. The Bengals offensive line gave up 5 sacks in Week 1. Again, huge win, however nonetheless a methods to go the place turning into a playoff crew is worried. One different brilliant spot for Cincinnati was solely being known as for 3 penalties the complete recreation. Those 15 penalty yards have been the bottom within the league for Week 1. I’m positive the Bengals teaching workers can stay with that quantity.
So, let’s see how Burrow and Bengals fare over the following few weeks. Maybe they’ll proceed to indicate this author and the remainder of the NFL that we must always now not be underestimating this franchise. I’d doubt that, however hey, stranger issues have occurred within the NFL. But for now, right here’s to you Bengals fans, you’ve earned this one; get pleasure from this season-opening deal with.
