Zac Taylor's Play-Calling Causes Fury Amidst Bengals Loss

The Cincinnati Bengals fell 19-17 to the Baltimore Ravens in an AFC North game at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, dropping to 2-3 on the season.

In the defeat, Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow completed 24 of 35 passes for 217 yards and one touchdown with one interception. He also ran for six yards and a score.

Hayden Hurst  led the Cincinnati' receivers with six catches for 53 yards and one touchdown, while Joe Mixon led the rushing game with 14 carries for 78 yards.

The players weren't held responsible, though. It was put on head coach Zac Taylor, who was outcoached by John Harbaugh, who was in charge of the Ravens.

One of the biggest complaints was that the Bengals got no points from 15-play, 73-yard drive that took 8:04 off the clock.

Instead of going for the points and trying a short field goal in the third quarter that would have tied the game at 13, Cincinnati chose to go for it and ended up turning the ball over on downs.

Following the two-point loss, supporters chastised Taylor's play-calling, blaming him entirely for the loss

Taylor should probably transfer play-calling responsibility to someone else at this point. However, the Bengals faced the same problems last season, and Taylor was retained as the team's play-caller.

The Bengals have a 2-3 record entering Week 6. Next weekend, they will travel to play with New Orleans Saints.
