OVERALL GAME GRADE — F
The defensive secondary for Oakland had a rough day to say the least. It was torched for three touchdowns and allowed Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton to throw for 210 yards and three touchdowns.
Going into the game it was obvious the secondary needed to focus on elite receiver A.J. Green.
It didn’t. Or couldn’t.
Green went off for 111 yards, while Jermaine Gresham had 41 yards and a touchdown. Finally, rookie receiver Mohamed Sanu had a career day with five catches for 29 yards and two touchdowns.
The secondary play for Oakland was ugly all around, and failed to slow down the Bengals’ aerial attack in any way whatsoever.
