Check out what cleveland.com’s Andrew Gillis wrote about the Bengals’ willingness to be more patient against the Cover 2 defense.

Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow knew exactly what the Steelers were going to throw at him. And he expects this to happen all year round.

In Sunday’s 23-20 overtime loss, the Steelers ran mostly two-high safety looks or cover 2s throughout the game to prevent deep shots from the Bengals’ explosive pass attack. For the most part it worked.

Burrow’s first pass of the season was an interception returned for a touchdown. He threw three more that day, all of which came in the first half when the Bengals’ offense struggled to get going in the first two quarters.

The second half was better, partly due to Burrow and offense’s patience, and that will be the focus for offense until defense is forced to adjust again.

“There are times in the game where you need to make a play, but mostly if you take what the defense is giving you, you’re going to move the ball around the field and be efficient and score points on the board,” Burrow said. “So we have to go back to that mindset.”

The two-high look and zoning scheme are used primarily to ensure defenses are not knocked down by the field. Coupled with the fact that there aren’t many teams in the sport with three defenders capable of stopping Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd in one-on-one fights, zone defense was and seems to be the choice of opposing defense against the Bengalis.

Now it’s up to the Bengals to adapt. And that probably involves more methodical, non-stop drives around the field.

“At this point, it’s just me trying to make the best possible game I can,” Chase said. “I might not be able to break it, but … make a big, explosive play, maybe 20 yards on the field that gives us some momentum. Something that small can make a big difference in a game.”

As Cincinnati began to take what Pittsburgh gave them, the offense got moving.

Burrow started the game 11 of 17 for 109 yards, zero touchdowns and three interceptions. In the last three quarters (including overtime), Burrow went 22 of 36 for 229 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.
