  • Bengals' Joe Burrow: Responsible for two TDs in win

    Burrow completed 20 of 24 pass attempts for 190 yards, a touchdown and an interception while scoring another touchdown on an eight-yard rush in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Steelers.

    The Bengals' defense and rushing attack led the charge in an important win over an AFC North rival, but Burrow was able to get in on the ground onslaught with a touchdown of his own. It was the 24-year-old's first rushing score of the season after posting three in his shortened rookie campaign. Burrow has failed to top 200 passing yards over his last two contests after averaging 309.5 yards over his previous six. The Bengals may need to rely on their rising star quarterback when they face a high-powered Chargers offense next Sunday.

  • Bengals' Tee Higgins: Best game of season

    Higgins caught six of eight targets for 114 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Steelers.

    Higgins finally broke the century mark in his ninth start of the year, also chipping in his first touchdown since Week 2. Ja'Marr Chase has clearly been the Bengals' top receiving option this season, but the Steelers shaded more coverage his way, opening the door for his teammate to steal the glory. Higgins has been a fringe option in standard fantasy formats this season, so he will look to gain momentum off of a season-best performance heading into a Week 13 matchup against the Chargers.

  • Bengals' Ja'Marr Chase: Falls victim to game script

    Chase caught all three of his targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 41-10 blowout win over the Steelers.

    The Bengals went up big in the first half on the backs of Joe Mixon (165 yards and two touchdowns) and a dominant defensive performance (interception return for a touchdown). When Joe Burrow was asked to drop back and pass, he favored Tee Higgins (six receptions for 114 yards and a score) on the side of the field that star defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick wasn't operating in. Chase has seen his production dip over the last four contests as defenses appear to be focusing more on the breakout star (38 yards per game over that span). Cincinnati may need to utilize its top receiving option more heavily in an upcoming matchup against the Chargers' high-powered offense next Sunday.

  • Bengals' Joe Mixon: Continues to dominate

    Mixon rushed 28 times for 165 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 41-10 win over the Steelers. He added four receptions on four targets for negative two yards.

    Mixon continued his recent assault on opposing defenses, scoring multiple touchdowns for the fourth game in a row. The 24-year-old has also seen a huge uptick in usage of late, averaging 144 rushing yards on 29 carries over Cincinnati's last two contests after failing to reach 20 carries over the previous seven. The Bengals' recent commitment to the run has resulted in a two-game win streak following a mid-season lull, so Mixon should continue to see heavy usage heading into a home matchup against another AFC playoff hopeful, the Los Angeles Chargers, next Sunday.

  • Bengals' Trey Hopkins: Hurts knee Sunday

    Hopkins (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Steelers.

    It's never good for an offense to lose its starting center. However, the Bengals may choose to err on the side of caution with Hopkins because they are blowing out the Steelers in the fourth quarter.

  • Bengals' Riley Reiff: Leaves with injury

    Reiff (ankle) has left Sunday's game against the Steelers early and is questionable to return.

    Reiff's absence will leave a hole at right tackle for the Bengals. Hakeem Adeniji will likely fill in for Reiff until he is able to return.

  • Bengals' Auden Tate: Inactive, as expected

    Tate (thigh) is inactive Week 12 against the Steelers, Jay Morrison of The Athletic reports.

    Tate entered Sunday morning with a doubtful tag after not taking the practice field all week, so it's no surprise to see him sitting this one out. The Cincinnati receiving corps will again be led by Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, with Stanley Morgan and Mike Thomas set to work in depth/special teams roles.

  • Bengals' Thaddeus Moss: Elevated to active roster

    Moss was elevated to the Bengals' active roster Saturday.

    Moss could make his professional debut after being added to the active roster for the first time in his career. The 23-year-old played his college ball with Joe Burrow at LSU and will look to rekindle that relationship against the Steelers on Sunday.

  • Bengals' Auden Tate: Likely out Sunday

    Tate (thigh) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Marisa Contipelli of the Bengals' official site reports.

    Tate was unable to practice this week due to the thigh injury and is expected to be sidelined for the fourth straight contest. Stanley Morgan and Mike Thomas should continue operating as Cincinnati's depth wideouts.
