Research Notes

  • The Bengals sent at least five rushers on 10 of Jay Cutler's 33 dropbacks on Sunday, who handled the pressure much better than a year ago. Cutler ranked 33rd among qualified quarterbacks with a 23.5 Total QBR against added pressure last season, but was much improved in Sunday's opener.

  • From Elias: Robbie Gould's 58-yard field goal on Sunday was a Soldier Field record, breaking the previous mark of 56 yards by Greg Zuerlein of the Rams last September 23.

  • A.J. Green caught 9 passes for 162 yards, breaking Chad Johnson's franchise record for receiving yards in a season opener.
