This is less than ideal.

Both scheme and personnel changes made the Bengals’ pass rush very fun to watch against the Redskins

Despite the absence of Geno Atkins and Carl Lawson, the Bengals’ pass rush looked impressive in the team’s second preseason game against the Washington Redskins.

Their pass rush has been bolstered by a pair some newcomers and changes in scheme. If the preseason is any indicator, the Bengals defense will feature more line stunts and linebackers...

The good, the bad and the ugly in Bengals’ win over the Redskins

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

It wasn’t pretty, but Zac Taylor notched his first win as an NFL head coach against another former Bengals assistant in Jay Gruden.

The Cincinnati Bengals notched their first win in the Zac Taylor era, but it wasn’t the prettiest of results. In their 23-13 win over Jay Gruden’s Redskins, huge plays and mental lapses were part and parcel of Thursday evening.

Here are the best and worst from the Bengals’ Week 2 preseason win over Washington.

Bengals rookie report: Early draft picks lead the victory charge

Cincinnati’s 17-0 second half run was due in large part to the performances of the rookies they’ll be relying on in the regular season.

If you stopped watching the Bengals’ Week 2 preseason game against the Redskins midway through the first quarter, you probably thought penalties were the main storyline of the game.

You would be wrong, of course, because the draft class of 2019 stole the show for Cincinnati and led the squad to their first...

Bengals 53-man roster projection: Mid-preseason edition

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

With two offensive linemen retiring, changes had to be made to the projected 53-man roster.

We’re halfway through the preseason and only a few weeks away from seeing what the Bengals’ final roster will look like.

Our last roster projection came out about three weeks ago, so some things have changed since then. Primarily, the Bengals have played in two preseason games, but there has also been a rash of retirements on the offensive line.

The roster has more...

Will the Bengals unleash Sam Hubbard in Year 2?

Sam Hubbard grew up a Cincinnati kid boy, and he made his hometown proud after his rookie season. Will he be able to build off of it?

Bengals’ defensive end Sam Hubbard is heading into a crucial second season.

One of the few bright spots defensively last season, Hubbard was able to play in all 16 games, which was a rarity for Cincinnati’s defenders last year. He finished the season with six sacks, seven tackles for a loss and two passes defended, and did it while playing behind...

PFF’s first preseason mock draft has Cincinnati taking a QB

The restart button is about to be pressed.

The Cincinnati Bengals have been led by Andy Dalton for almost a decade. Immediately starting all 16 games as a rookie in 2011, the veteran will need a solid season in 2019 to maintain that starting spot.

If the Bengals have an underwhelming 2019, they’ll be primed to select one of the top quarterbacks of the 2020 NFL Draft. Unlike in 2019, the top few players in 2020 will be quarterbacks.

Andy Dalton looks to take his career to new heights under new coaching staff

Andy Dalton is the most talked about player in Cincinnati every offseason.

Some fans point to Dalton’s performance under the bright lights of a national stage and say that he will never lead the Bengals to a Super Bowl. Others count their blessings, thinking of the struggles that the Bengals had finding a quarterback throughout the 90s.

Coming off a 21-point road loss to the powerhouse Chiefs, the Bengals got their preseason back to .500 after putting together a more competent performance against the Redskins. Their 17-0 second half run was due in large part due to the second and third-string units playing mistake-free football. After...
