Week 1, as a whole, was a pretty good showing by the Cincinnati Bengals. For three and a half quarters, it seemed that the team was clicking well and all signs pointed to a "W."
And just like that, the whole thing unraveled. After being up 21-10, the Bengals allowed the Chicago Bears to score 14 unanswered points, and they continued to drive the football down the Bengals' throats until the very end of the game. It's ultimately very disappointing that such a solid showing ended so badly.
While most of the team played valiantly, there were some guys on the field who were visibly absent. With the Pittsburgh Steelers rolling into town, another loss and an 0-2 start is unacceptable, so these men must show up to play.
