The Bengals’ offensive line has had some struggles this season, but over the past few weeks they have shown improvement.
Offensive line coaches frequently talk about continuity. There is a lot of communication involved in blocking and not all of it is verbal, so keeping the same 5 guys out there week in and week out gives you an advantage.
Outside the Week 1 injury of Xavier Su’a-Filo, the Bengals have been fortunate enough to stay healthy on the offensive line this season. Unfortunately, their luck ended on Sunday. The Bengals lost arguably their two best offensive linemen in the first half of the game as left tackle Jonah Williams and center Trey Hopkins both left the game with injuries.
