Re: Ready for 1-0?
What I was most impressed with was the play of the DL- primarily Justin Smith and Robert Geathers. The two combined for 8 solo tackles including a combined 5 sacks. And those weren't stunt or outside speed sacks either. They were bull rush "power" penetrations that just plain overwhelmed the KC offensive line.
That was very impressive and one of the reasons Green was injured is that he had to scramble out of yet another protection breakdown caused by defensive line penetration into the backfield. Nicely done by the Bengals today.
