Very conservative, vanilla playcalling. We really don't have a deep threat either (Chad doesn't seem to do this much anymore), so it's a bit hard to go for that sort of "knock out" punch.
This is very much a Pittsburgh Steelers-esque offensive squad (or at least the way the Steelers used to be). Rely on line play up front and get that 3 yards and a cloud of dust.
What the Bengals should strive for is to find a way to return to the form that they had for that dominating performance they had against the bears, where it was a good balance.
