Bengals: A tie

Bengals 13 Falcons 13

A preseason tie. It was uninspiring as it sounds. Thank the heavens they got rid of overtime in preseason. Get Joe back after this week. Get me to Week 1.

The offense scored a TD.....first in 22 drives.

Still not convinced they have a backup QB: Jake Browning did create with his legs and bounced back from a pick to orchestrate a 2-minute TD drive.....16-22-160, INT.

Trevor Siemian has started in this league (30), put up award winning performances and won in this league. But has shown little in camp. He was 7 for 14 for 62 yards. He did lead an end of the half FG drive. He has to be behind Browning in the pecking order, I'd think. And Browning has never taken a snap in a regular season games.

Johan Williams was the lone offensive started to play....he got a drive.

Falcons went 15 plays vs the Bengals starting D to open the game. So they got work. Mike Hilton tip/Joseph Ossai pick bailed them out. The Falcons had over 100 yards on the opening drive, but also had penalty after penalty.

I love watching Chris Evans split out and catch passes. Good luck with that matchup for a defense.

Max Scharping seemed to get a lot of run at center?

Cam Taylor Britt hits and stuffs......he did miss one tackle. But I love his confidence and swagger.

Jordan Battle, a rookie, gets flagged for taunting? Really?

What if this is the breakout year for Joseph Ossai? What if Cam Sample is taking a next step? Look out.

Good to see Charlie Jones (labrum) get involved with 4 catches for 36 yards.

Think they are getting a look at Andrei Iosivas? 20 targets in two games....5 for 44 Friday. I'm trying to contain my excitement, with Auden Tate dancing in my head, but he's really intriguing.

They didn't run it well, again. But Chase Brown seems to be able to get tough yards....had the late TD.

McPherson and Robbins seems fine together.

Bummer for Myles Murphy (illness). He's from Atlanta.

Raymond Johnson Jr. does things that make me keep writing his name down.

Is Jackson Carman going to make this team?
