Week 2: vs San Francisco 49ers

All WR vs SF

FBG says: Neutral matchup. In his first game under new coach Zac Taylor, Andy Dalton brought encouraging returns. He threw for 418 yards and 2 touchdowns, succeeding against the Seattle defense in several ways. For most of the game, Dalton stuck to short, quick-hitting throws to mitigate the Bengals' shaky line. He and slot specialist Tyler Boyd carried over their bond from 2018, connecting on 8 of their 11 targets, mostly over the middle. But when he looked at John Ross' way deep, the results were fantastic. On the day, Ross shattered his career achievements with 7 receptions, 158 yards, and 2 scores. He routinely won with his speed and open-field dynamism as the Bengals surprisingly schemed the ball to him throughout the game. Ross certainly stormed onto the NFL scene Sunday, though that kind of usage may not become a weekly thing. On a day in which he threw 51 passes, Dalton spread the ball to 8 different targets, and Ross did drop a few throws. For the Bengals to have any deep-ball success going forward, they'll need to keep Dalton upright. Cordy Glenn could return to the left tackle spot this weekend or perhaps shuffle inside to help the run game. In any event, when he does return, he'll serve as the team's best all-around blocker by a mile. The San Francisco pass defense entered 2019 in search of a playmaking identity. And after recording just 2 interceptions through all of 2018 - the lowest total in league history - they capitalized on Jameis Winston's erratic arm to beat that total on opening day. They even returned two for touchdowns, including the game-sealer with 2:10 to play. The coverage unit looked strong all game, with Richard Sherman and company keeping Mike Evans (28 yards on 5 targets), Chris Godwin (53 on 6), and O.J. Howard (32 on 5) from making much impact. The key factor may have been the retooled pass rush, as new additions Dee Ford and Nick Bosa practically lived in the Tampa Bay backfield. If Week 1 was any indicator, the 49ers are prepared to take a huge step forward from last year's permissive unit.

Bengals | Thursday practice report for Bengals (Thu Sep 12, 05:26 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) and OT Cordy Glenn (concussion) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 12. RB Trayveon Williams (foot) and S Clayton Fejedelem (ankle) were limited during practice. S Jessie Bates (wrist) and WR Auden Tate (knee) fully participated in practice.

Our View: Green was sighted at the practice field but did not participate, so he's probably still at least 2-3 weeks away from return in even the most optimistic scenario. The offense got by without Glenn last week, but will welcome him back with open arms when he gets out of concussion protocol, although he has been there for about a month now in a troubling development.

Bengals | A.J. Green making progress (Wed Sep 11, 02:30 PM) - Cincinnati Bengals WR A.J. Green (ankle) is no longer wearing a walking boot and was able to do some running without any problems Tuesday, Sept. 10. He said there is still no timetable for his return.

Our View: Green might miss another month or so, nobody really knows at this time. Getting out of the walking boot is progress and a good sign but we're not in the clear yet.
