Bates recorded 11 tackles (four solo) during Sunday's 51-14 loss to the Saints.
Bates led Cincinnati's defense in tackles during the Week 10 loss. The rookie second-round pick has shown continual growth throughout the 2018 regular season, and will look to log another solid performance against the Ravens on Sunday.
Bates recorded six tackles (four solo) and three passes defensed, including an interception for a touchdown, in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers.
Bates' interception was his third of the season. He broke on a Jameis Winston pass and had nothing but grass between him and the endzone. He and the Bengals have a bye coming up before they take on Drew Brees and the Saints in Week 10.
Bates recorded 12 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 45-10 loss to Kansas City.
Bates and fellow safety Shawn Williams combined for 24 tackles Sunday. Bates has now recorded double-digit tackles in back-to-back weeks. He's been impressive in his rookie year and will look to continue his strong play into Week 8, when the Bengals play Tampa Bay.
Bates is among the latest recent additions to the Bengals whose primary asset is great speed. The second-round pick out of Wake Forest is also known for his ball skills. He's tentatively slated to start alongside Shawn Williams as the top two safeties for the Bengals.
