Takeaways from Bengals loss at Washington

HYATTSVILLE, Maryland -- The Cincinnati Bengals were dealt their first preseason loss on Friday night. After taking the lead late in the third quarter, the Bengals were unable to score another touchdown. 

Several starters saw action well into the first quarter, the longest head Zac Taylor has kept his first-team offense and defense in so far this preseason. The Bengals’ pass rush was the highlight of the night while the starting offense was unable to really ever get going in both the run and pass game.
