The Film Room: How To Shut Down The Bengals’ Offense

You want to know the secret to stopping Cincinnati? Wait for Andy Dalton to eventually do it himself.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

In advance of tonight’s primetime battle between the Texans and Bengals, I spent a lot of hours this week watching Cincinnati’s offensive struggles from their home opener to evaluate just how the Ravens’ defense was able to completely shut them down. Little did I know when I started my film study, however, that the Bengals actually created just as many problems for themselves as Terrell Suggs did that day.

On this week’s episode of "The Film Room," we examine what went wrong for Andy Dalton in Week one, and why his shortcomings as a quarterback give the Texans a chance to win tonight. Enjoy!
