CINCINNATI (AP) — Joe Burrow is cementing his reputation for being able to use whatever he's got and do whatever is necessary — sometimes just enough — to win.
With top receiver Ja'Marr Chase still out with a hip injury and running back Joe Mixon in concussion protocol, the Bengals quarterback leaned on receiver Tee Higgins, backup running back Samaje Perine and little-used players such as running back Trayveon Williams and receiver Trenton Irwin.

Thanks to two-time NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry, they have been one of the league's best scoring touchdowns inside the red zone.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Cincinnati Bengals have a knack for beating the Tennessee Titans at their own game — by playing more physically and forcing the opponent into mistakes at the wrong time.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Playing without Ja’Marr Chase, the Cincinnati Bengals had a rough night.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Tennessee Titans coach Mike Vrabel offered handshakes and high-fives to his players as they exited Nissan Stadium following a victory two weeks ago.

Chase has been bothered by the hip for several weeks.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Coach Zac Taylor had an inkling it might be a good day for the Cincinnati Bengals when Joe Burrow connected with Tyler Boyd on a deep ball for a touchdown early in the game.
The play unfolded exactly as it was planned, with Boyd streaking down the middle and Burrow hitting him in stride for a 60-yard score.

One is when the quarterback takes a knee to run out the clock. The other is when Justin Tucker comes on the field to attempt a game-winning kick.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Joe Burrow would just as soon forget his most recent NFL start, a five-turnover clunker for defending AFC champion Cincinnati last week.

CINCINNATI (AP) — One of themes this week for Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow is a familiar one from last season: start faster.

CINCINNATI (AP) — Clark Harris, Cincinnati's veteran long snapper, might have cost the Bengals the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers just by getting hurt.
