The start of the 2023 NFL season for the Bengals has been a bumpy one. The club is off to an 0-2 start, which has been headlined by an extremely sluggish showing offensively. After Week 2, Cincinnati ranks last in total yards per game (212) and 30th in passing yards per game (141.5). And as you look deep into the depth chart, you can see a noticeable drop-off in production from star wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase.
Chase has registered 70 yards receiving through the first two weeks combined. For reference, the wideout had 10 games where he went over this total in his 15 games played a season ago (including playoffs). Part of the issue is quarterback Joe Burrow continuing to find his way back to full strength after suffering a calf injury that kept him out most of training camp and all of the preseason (he also tweaked the calf in Sunday’s loss to Baltimore).
