1.) Don’t let Joe Burrow get momentum
The Bengals’ offense has stepped up from their early season struggles and part of the reason why is because of the play of quarterback Joe Burrow. Halfway through the season, Burrow has thrown for 1,513 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions while completing 66% of his throws. His last four games, Burrow has completed over 65% of his throws, including completing 87.5% of his throws against a San Francisco defense that usually locks down opposing quarterbacks.
One thing that the Bills’ have to consistently do is get in the pocket to make Burrow uncomfortable. In the last four games, Burrow has been sacked 3 times each, and 19 times overall on the season. If the pocket is clean for Burrow and the receivers get even one extra step on the defenders, Burrow can build momentum throughout the ball game which puts more pressure on Allen and the Bills.
