Joe Burrow, Ja'Marr Chase Offer Solution to Bengals' Issues on Offense

The young duo knows Cincinnati's offense ahas to be better moving forward.

CINCINNATI — The Bengals' offense struggled for most of Sunday's game against the Bears. They had four turnovers and never moved the ball consistently, finishing with just 17 points. 

The Bears' secondary was sitting on the Bengals' routes because they knew Cincinnati wanted to attack them with the quick passing game. Both Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase think the offense should've included more deep shots.

"You gotta throw the ball over their head and at least make them feel like you're gonna be able to do that and call some plays that go over their head," Burrow said.

The Bengals only took three deep shots during the game. One was off target to Ja'Marr Chase, one could've been thrown better, but Tee Higgins had a chance at it and the third ended up in Chase's hands for a 42-yard touchdown.

"We waited too last minute to take shots," Chase said. "We knew they was sitting the whole game. I was telling Joe (Burrow). Tee knew. We just gotta capitalize on the stuff we see early in the game."

If the Bengals' offense is going to reach its' full potential, then they definitely need to push the ball downfield. There was a big emphasis on explosive plays this offseason and they didn't generate enough of them in Sunday's loss.
