“I think that’s kind of been our problem this year,” Karras said in an...

The lack of a running game spoiled his Bengals’ debut.

Jake Browning had big shoes to fill.

Browning was taking over for the injured Joe Burrow and was making the first start of a career that saw him join the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2019. He spent the next two years on the practice squad before joining the Cincinnati Bengals practice squad in September of 2021.

I’m not really sure what to say.

I’ve defined myself as an optimistic person. It’s a part of who I am, and it’s helped me as a Cincinnati Bengals fan. Every year, I go into the season bright-eyed and bushy-tailed and most of the time I come out of the season covered in mange and with at least one infection. But I have a short memory, so by August I’m back on the “this is our year”...
