Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 13 vs DEN (25 / 37 / 236 / 1 / 1 pass, 3 / 3 / 0 rush)
Driskel threw a miserable interception late, making the awful decision to heave it down the middle of the field into coverage while falling away to avoid pressure. Aside from that mistake, he looked a capable NFL quarterback. In fact, very little blame for the offensive struggle against the Broncos falls on Driskel. For most of the game, he was on time and on target when throwing. He also showed his athleticism on a couple of designed runs. It was surprising the Bengals didn't incorporate more designed quarterback runs. The failure to design a game plan to take advantage of his full skillset is an indictment of the Bengals offensive braintrust. The passing game was completely doomed to failure by the disastrous performance of the Bengals offensive line. When they weren't giving up sacks, they were committing costly penalties. In fact, every single Bengals offensive lineman had drawn at least one flag by midway through the second quarter. Driskel showed a nice arm and solid rapport with Tyler Boyd and CJ Uzomah. He hit Boyd for some big gains down the seams. Driskel also hit Cody Core for a 30-yard touchdown in the third quarter on a post route.
2018 Week 12 vs CLE (17 / 29 / 155 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 9 / 1 rush)
Driskel came on for an injured Dalton and acquitted himself fairly well. In fact, he was able to lead a couple touchdown drives and made the game mildly interesting late. He showed off his big arm with a dart between a pair of defenders to Tyler Boyd for a 28-yard touchdown. The Bengals didn't do much to take advantage of Driskel's athleticism but likely will moving forward with time to game plan for him as starter. Driskel did score a 2-yard rushing touchdown on a bizarre quarterback sneak. He burrowed forward and was somehow able to keep pushing forward until he broke the plane. Driskel made a big-time throw on the run to for a long gain to Boyd but the play was called back due to an illegal shift, which basically ended any hopes of a miracle comeback.
