The Bengals went on the road and beat the Steelers 24-10 on Sunday afternoon.
They improve to 2-1 heading into a Week 4 matchup against the Jaguars on Thursday Night Football.
Here are our winners and losers from the Bengals win:
The second year linebacker had two interceptions today, but his overall play lands him on the winners list. Wilson is having a breakout season through three games. He’s making plays, making tackles, and involved in many big defensive situations for the Bengals. He finished with 14 tackles, two interceptions and two pass breakups.
The Chase doubters are quickly disappearing. Chase had two touchdowns against the Steelers, making it four touchdowns in three games for the rookie receiver. As of now, Chase is one of the front runners to win AFC Rookie of the Year.
Due to an injury to Xavier Sua-Filo, the rookie guard got his first NFL start in Pittsburgh. Carman played well in his debut and was part of a Bengals offensive line that didn't allow a sack and only gave up one pressure. It seems like Carman has earned the starting guard spot, and I expect to see him get the nod again on Thursday against Jacksonville.
After a rough Week 2 game against the Bears, Burrow bounced back, leading the Bengals to a big win over a divisional rival. Burrow started the game against the Steelers with another interception, but managed to really turn the game around afterwards. He finished 14-of-18 for 172 yards and three touchdowns.
Not too many losers for the Bengals this week, but Eli Apple had a rough game. With Trae Waynes out, Apple has been starting and he continues to struggle. When Waynes returns we could see him in a more comfortable role, but Apple shouldn't be a week-to-week starter. Waynes is close to returning, but Chidobe Awuzie went down with a groin injury. If he misses time, Apple could stay in the starting lineup.
