Film Room: Bengals’ 2-minute defense runs into issues in Philly

After tying the Eagles last weekend, the Bengals are now 0-10-1 in one-score games under head coach Zac Taylor.

Each game is unique and there are a variety of reasons for any loss, but there was one aspect of this game that would have made a huge difference: two-minute defense.

The Bengals defense only allowed two touchdowns, but each came in the closing minutes of the half.

End of the first half

After an Eagles field goal put them up 6-3, the Bengals’ offense responded by driving down the field for their first touchdown of the day.
