Week 3: vs Tennessee Titans

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Bengals have thrown for over 300 yards passing in each of their first two games - last week, Andy Dalton (15/23 for 252 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions) was helped out by Mohamed Sanu (1/1 for 50 yards passing) - neither guy was sacked during Week 2. Sanu not only threw an impressive, on-target long bomb, he also racked up four targets for 3/84/1 to account for the only TD pass from Dalton during the game. Giovani Bernard (six targets for 5/79/0), Brandon Tate (three for 1/50/0), Dane Sanzenbacher (four for 2/42/0) and Jermaine Gresham (three targets for 3/25/0) were all also heavily involved after A.J. Green was forced out of the lineup due to aggravating a foot/toe injury. Dalton is getting the job done even without his #1 and #2 (Marvin Jones, rehabbing after foot surgery) wide receivers on the field. During Week One, Alex Smith was sacked four times for -24 yards, hit five other times, intercepted three times, and ended the day with a mere 19/35 for 178 net yards passing, with one TD thrown vs. Tennessee. Tony Romo watched his backs pile up 43/220/1 rushing at Tennessee last week, so Romo didn't have to throw much (19/29 for 148 net yards, one TD with zero interceptions thrown, and four sacks taken for -28 yards). The Titans are tied for second in the NFL with eight sacks so far this year, and they haven't allowed much in the way of passing yards, either, as you can see. Dalton and company are diminished without Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones - also, A.J. Green is proving iffy during September due to his nagging toe injury. Meanwhile the Bengals' backs have a great matchup - we think the team will slant the game plan towards the rushing game this week. Advantage, Tennessee.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs ATL (4 / 2 / 42 / 0 rec)

Sanzenbacher caught two deep slants from Andy Dalton in single coverage, which ended up being Dalton's only successful downfield throws. But there was mis-communication early and a lack of an ability to get open in the endzone on a number of occasions. This caused Dalton to throw it away in the redzone a couple times. Sanzenbacher showed good route-running and hands on his two receptions, and the playing time should benefit the Bengals when their weapons return. But Sanzenbacher is no threat to put up big numbers. He lacks deep speed and only has the ability to beat single coverage.
