To learn more about Kansas City’s opponent, we spoke with Chris Roling over at Bengals Wire and asked him a few questions.

Bengals Wire: Bill Lazor fully implementing his own offense is the biggest reason. An upgrade at left tackle with Cordy Glenn was a must, but remember Lazor only inherited the offense installed by Ken Zampese last year after the Bengals made a change. Lazor is working brilliantly with not only Dalton, but he’s doing little things like actually using versatile back Joe Mixon and creating matchup problems with A.J. Green from the slot. Giving John Ross a healthy dose of looks has kept defenses honest, too]]> 5335866 Sat, 20 Oct 2018 9:42:01 EDT Chiefs Wire

Green’s responsibility to control Vontaze Burfict.

When did coaches stop coaching?

Blame for the Burfict problem in Cincinnati, which is back two games into his season after a four-game ban, falls directly on the shoulders of head coach Marvin Lewis and those in the organization above him.

While touching on this in a column about Burfict’s latest antics, which included an elbow to the head of a defenseless Antonio Brown, Robert Klemko of MMQB suggests a better locker room would shut this sort of thing down]]> 5334058 Thu, 18 Oct 2018 6:33:01 EDT Bengals Wire
<![CDATA[Bengals | A.J. Green targeted 12 times in loss]]> A.J. Green posted seven receptions for 85 yards on 12 targets in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.]]> 5330672 Sun, 14 Oct 2018 18:30:02 EDT footballguys <![CDATA[Seven catches, 85 yards in loss]]> Green caught seven of 12 targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Steelers.

Green led his team in receiving yards but was outplayed by teammate Tyler Boyd (seven catches for 64 yards and two touchdowns). The two productive wideouts have coexisted well thus far, and that should be the case again in Week 7 against a porous Chiefs secondary.

However, all is well for Cincy, with the game essentially being 0-0 heading into the third quarter.  The Bengals can easily win this football game.

Let’s see if Cincinnati keeps going to Boyd in the second half or if Dalton finds ways to get A.J. Green, Joe Mixon and the rest of the team involved]]> 5330274 Sun, 14 Oct 2018 15:03:01 EDT Bengals Wire
<![CDATA[5 defensive Dolphins to watch vs. Bears]]>
These five defensive players could have a big impact this week against the Bears:

Minkah Fitzpatrick: The rookie defensive back has been having a fantastic rookie campaign. He has been playing extremely well in man coverage and does not seem to get overwhelmed very easily. Last week, he held Bengals receiver Tyler Boyd in check and only allowed a couple of passes to A.J. Green]]> 5329121 Sat, 13 Oct 2018 10:24:01 EDT Dolphins Wire
<![CDATA[A.J. Green had an awesome answer when asked if he's the 'anti-OBJ']]> A.J. Green is indeed the anti-Odell Beckham Jr.

Not that he would ever cop to it.

The guys at NFL Network tried to get Green to confirm he’s the anti-OBJ, or complain about Tyler Boyd having more targets…something. But that’s just not Green:

How does @ajgreen_18 respond when @joethomas73 calls him the “anti-OBJ”?#TNF First Look @nflnetwork

<![CDATA[Steelers vs Bengals: 3 questions with Bengals Wire]]>
This week the Pittsburgh Steelers will start a three-game stretch of AFC North matchup which will go a long way toward determining if the Steelers are contenders or pretenders. First up are the AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals. We did our weekly Q&A with our friends at Bengals Wire to get the inside scoop on this week’s opponent.

Bill Lazor. The offensive coordinator got to install his own offense this offseason as opposed to taking over a different coach’s plan like he did a year ago. The result is a quick-hitting attack smartly using its weapons, such as A.J. Green out of the slot. Actually having a dynamic back like Joe Mixon on the field helps, as does John Ross — defenses have to respect his speed and his merely being on the field is creating space for others. It’s a combination of things, but the offense is now fully carrying the defense in Cincinnati]]> 5328347 Fri, 12 Oct 2018 10:00:04 EDT Steelers Wire
