Yeah, it's interesting. Rondale Moore is probably our most dynamic, field-tilting playmaker on the offense (until Kyler comes back).

They keep trying him behind/at the LOS but he doesn't have the speed/agility to get by the first defender.

His biggest plays seem like they are down the field and the one big run from RB spot.

To be fair, that's literally the only big play he's made this season in 12 targets + 5 rushing attempts.

Well, finally heading back over for game. Doing this one and then on to LA for Cards Rams the week after. My missus and I are going to head to that Brew Haus or pre-flight/flight deck type places Pre game, unless I should be avoiding them??
Whoa, long time no see man! I am glad you seem to be doing great.

We can't get beat on Sunday.

All the other games I can find some reasoning behind the loss, although the more I watch the Giants the harder that 2nd half gets. And the team has general learnt from them and improved most weeks.

It's hard to see any reason why we should lose at home to the Bengals this week.
You said the blatant obvious reason “were at home”

The Bengals beat the Rams, who are much better than us. There's a reason Cinci is favored. How long do you think we are going to be able to keep Chase covered?

Eh we'll know soon, but I don't know if the Rams are that much better. They still have Donald, and Stafford-Nacua connection is pretty strong, but overall they aren't that good.

Kyren Williams is also a massive stud. My reasoning for the Rams being better is that they took the 49ers to the wire. It was tied at half and the Rams lead at points in the game. Their defense is solid and as long Stafford doesn't get pummeled they can score. Their beatdown of the Seahawks was also impressive.

McVay sold the hell out of that Bengals game.

Just kept Stafford for a majority of the game which made it easy for Cincy to tee off against a makeshift OLine. Barely committed to the run.

I think we win this game going-away though.

Bengals usually struggle with Stefanski-esque offenses & a hurt Burrow is hurting their offense more than it is helping. He can barely move.

From the article:
Arizona also leads the NFL in yards before contact per rushing attempt through Week 4 at 2.4 yards, almost a half-yard ahead of the Philadelphia Eagles in the second spot. This is, of course, an offensive line stat, but also largely a run scheme stat. Petzing is creating free lanes for James Conner and others to explode through on a regular basis.
