Joe Burrow interesting plays in Week 2

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said it would be easier to fix the Bengals offense if each of the nine sacks it allowed over the first two games stemmed from a common issue.

In Sunday’s loss to the Chicago Bears, quarterback Joe Burrow was sacked four times and hit nine times. If all of those were a result of one player or one type of communication issue, Taylor could address it.

That isn’t the case.

“That’s what’s frustrating,” Taylor said. “If it was one piece, you could just solve and say, ‘Hey, we gotta get this guy fixed because he’s given up four sacks in two games.’ That would be easy.

"When it’s things that are easily correctable and it’s just one guy on each play, then that’s when we get frustrated.”

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow (9) throws a pass in the first quarter of the NFL Week 2 game between the Chicago Bears and the Cincinnati Bengals at Soldier Field in Chicago on Sunday, Sept. 19, 2021. The Bears led 7-0 at halftime.

In the Bengals' 20-17 loss, Burrow went 19-for-30 for 207 yards with three interceptions and two touchdowns.

Here are Burrow’s five most interesting plays, with a focus on a few of the pass protection issues that stymied the Bengals offense:

  • Second and 1 from the Bengals' 17-yard line; 28 seconds left in the second quarter. Burrow is sacked by defensive tackle Bilal Nichols for a 6-yard loss.
