The five keys to the victory of the Bengals vs. the dolphins

Los Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) took away the undefeated Miami Dolphins (3-1) beating them 27-15 in Thursday night of football of week 4 due to multiple factors including opponent kicker mistakes and deep passes that Joe Burrow hit with his wide receivers.

Tagovailoa’s injury

The Dolphins had to play without Tua Tagovailoa (8/14, 110 yards) from the middle of the second quarter. Miami QB was fired by Josh Tupou and he left the field due to head and neck injuries.

Long precious passes

Quarterback bombings were not lacking in Thursday Night Football. Burrow (20/31, 287 yards and 2 TDs) connected on 59-yard shots with Tee Higgins who put six points on the board and another 43 yarder with Tyler Boyd. On the final drive, Ja’Marr Chase received a 36-yard reception which later ended with another TD.

Long passes of low value

For their part, the Dolphins have had great receptions without significantly affecting the score. Tyreek Hill took a 64-yard pass, but Miami only had three points on a 20-yard FG. According to the NFL’s Next Gen Stats, the ball flew 61.4 yards.


Jason Sanders, Dolphins kicker, missed a field goal from 52 yards because J Gunter blocked the ball. An offensive series later, the specialist missed the extra point after Chase Edmonds’ touchdown.


Defense of the Bengals, especially security Vonn Bell spawned two thefts by intercepting both Tagovailoa and Bridgewater. The final delivery gave Burrow seven points thanks to Burrow’s move to tight end Hayden Hurst.
