The Cincinnati Bengals remained undefeated by knocking off the Seattle Seahawks 27-24 in OT. It was an impressive comeback by the Bengals, who are now 5-0. Seattle dropped to 2-3 with the loss. Here are three things we learned from each team in the Bengals' win.
Cary Williams is a liability. The Bengals targeted Williams early and often. He gave up numerous deep balls and was whistled for two pass interference calls. The Seahawks don't have many other options right not, so Williams need to improve quickly. He's not getting it done.
Thomas Rawls is pretty good. It's not all negative here, as Rawls should he can be a starting RB in the NFL. Obviously, the Seahawks would prefer Marshawn Lynch, but Rawls has proven himself. He deserves at least a few carries each game when Lynch returns.
The Seahawks need to stop blowing games late. Seattle has lead in the fourth quarter of every game this season, and yet they are 2-3. They could be 1-4 if the referees didn't blow an illegal batted ball call. Seattle was up 24-7 at the start of the fourth quarter and this was a game they should have won. Seattle still has the talent to make a playoff push, but it needs to close better.
Gio Bernard is the #1 back. Maybe it's more of a 1A/1B situation with Bernard and Jeremy Hill, but Bernard is the lead back. He's getting the bulk of the carries right now, and he's playing more like he did his rookie season. The two of them form a potent duo in the backfield.
Andy Dalton can come up clutch. As mentioned before, the Seahawks were up big in the third quarter. However, Dalton managed to mount an impressive comeback for the Bengals.
