I thought the Bengals played an ok game. I had an issue with the end around on the 6 yard line when they were pounding the ball successfully. After a TO it went from 1st and goal from the 6 to 2nd and goal from the 10 because they tried to trick the defense.
I hate the waste of TO's in the 2nd half. It doesn't even seem to bother Marvin.
Burning 2nd half TOs hurts but you gotta give some credit to Peyton, with that offense they run when you finally can get subs in it's easy to have confusion. Honestly I thought we should have burned a TO on their last TD because they ran a formation that totally confused the entire defense.
But yea I agree about the calls, they're good enough to not need the borderline calls to go their way. That drive where Dalton converted the 3rd and long but we had a ton of penalties called against us was the back breaker. That and giving up a special teams TD.
