CINCINNATI (AP) — Down to its last chance Renell Wren Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , the Bengals‘ defense dug in to stop the run. The Carolina Panthers ran the ball six straight plays, got a pair of first downs and finished them off.This time, there was no big play to save a defense that’s given up a lot of yards in three games.The Panthers ran for 230 yards — averaging 5.6 per carry — during a 31-21 victory Sunday that highlighted one of Cincinnati’s biggest concerns in the opening month. The defense is giving up a lot of yards to quarterbacks and runners.Andrew Luck and Joe Flacco each threw for more than 300 yards in the first two games, but the Bengals were able to stop the run and come up with late turnovers to hold on for wins. In Carolina, they simply got run over all game and were unable to save themselves at the end.“We felt like we were close,” defensive end Carlos Dunlap said. “I hope it looked that way too. They did a lot of little things that worked to their benefit.”Mainly, the NFL’s top running game took advantage of them. Christian McCaffrey ran for 184 yards — averaging 6.6 per carry — and Cam Newton ran for a pair of touchdowns. McCaffrey ran for 99 yards in the first half alone Renell Wren Jersey 2019 , when the Panthers got ahead 21-14.The decisive possession came after Andy Dalton was picked off at midfield with 3:33 left and the Panthers up by seven points. McCaffrey had a pair of runs for 13 yards against a defense that knew he’d get the ball. Newton then faked a handoff and went 12 yards around left end, leaving the Panthers well inside field-goal range.The Panthers ran three more plays to drain the clock, and they kicked the clinching field goal with 1:11 to go.“Sometimes it’s just one of those days,” defensive coordinator Teryl Austin said Monday. “We had a stinker.”The Bengals (2-1) held the Colts to 75 yards rushing in the opener and the Ravens to 66 yards rushing the following game, forcing them to throw. They didn’t expect a lot of runs from McCaffrey, who had carried only 18 times in the Panthers’ first two games but caught 20 passes.“They did some things we hadn’t seen on film, and it kind of shocked us a little bit Renell Wren Jersey Mens ,” cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick said Monday.”The Bengals face another unfamiliar offense next Sunday when they travel to Atlanta (1-2) for their third road game in the opening month.The Falcons lost to the Saints 43-37 in overtime on Sunday. Kirkpatrick plans to challenge his teammates in practice this week to get beyond the bad performance in Carolina and get ready for a wide-open offense.“Everybody’s down now,” Kirkpatrick said. “We expect more.”GREEN’S STATUSCoach Marvin Lewis provided no update on the status of A.J. Green, who suffered a groin injury early in the third quarter and didn’t return. The Bengals struggled to move the ball in the second half with him on the sideline, going 0 for 4 on third down. Green caught five passes for 58 yards.ONE MORELinebacker Vontaze Burfict serves the final week of his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancers. He’s eligible to rejoin the team next week. The top 10 of this year’s NFL Draft is becoming very interesting. There seems to be a ton of blue chip pass rushers coming to the NFL as well as several other very talented defenders and offensive lineman. There is also the wild card of whether Kyler Murray will be the second quarterback taken in the first 10 picks after Dwayne Haskins.All of this leaves the Bengals sitting at pick 11 wondering who will fall on draft night. Right now the Bengals two most glaring needs are at offensive tackle and linebacker. At this point, Devin White is the only linebacker who looks like he will be worthy of a selection that early if he makes it to Cincinnati’s pick. Offensive tackle looked like a thin position at the start of the draft process, but a few more tackles have been climbing up the draft boards, which has Todd McShay thinking the Bengals could snag one early in his most recent mock draft.This mock shows the rise of not only Ford Youth Renell Wren Jersey , but Jawaan Taylor, the offensive tackle out of Florida, as well. Taylor went ninth overall to the Bills, which is quite the rise after he was viewed as a mid-first round pick not that long ago.Ford would obviously be a welcome addition. The offensive line saw improvements last season after bringing in Billy Price at center and Cordy Glenn at left tackle, but it really shows just how bad they were before that since they still struggled pretty heavily. One of the main reasons for the was Bobby Hart starting at right tackle most of the season. There were times you questioned how he could have ever been viewed as a starting right tackle with the way he pass protected. Ford would be an instant upgrade in the run game where he has incredible power and enough quickness to set the edge. His major knock seems to be his pass protection footwork isn’t quite there yet, but if the biggest knock is technique then you could do far worse. He would likely be a day one starter and have an instant impact when you consider what the Bengals dealt with last season.It should also be noted that White was also still on the board in McShay’s scenario, which would create quite the dilemma for Cincinnati. Their linebacking group could be getting a hard reset with the likely release of Vontaze Burfict and the rest of the group being mediocre at best. White would give the Bengals a true sideline-to-sideline linebacker White Renell Wren Jersey , which is something they’ve been desperately missing for years now.If the Bengals manage to pick up a starter with the 11th pick at offensive line or linebacker, it seems like it’d be hard for fans to be too upset with the selection.
