Default Special teams, not Dalton, blew this game.

If fans had heard going into the game that Cincy would score 2 TDs and 2 FGs in the 2nd half with only one bad drive (INT), I think they would have said "we'll take it!" It's the ONLY game this season where Cincy's offense played BETTER in the 2nd half against a good team.

I say it was the special teams that lost this game. The missed FG at the end of the half plus the KO return for a TD was a HUGE 10 point swing for the Broncos. Take those away and we have a much different game...

Cincy'd defense gave up no points in the 3rd. Without the ST gaffes, Cincy would have been up 23-10 early in the 4th quarter.

With a 23-17 lead, there's no way Cincy would have done anything except run on 3rd and 25 and then punted. It might not have prevented Den going up 24-23, but Cincy got the last minute FG that could have won the game.

A lot of ifs and maybes there, but it certainly looks like the offense and defense did enough to win.

Special teams haven't thrown at least 1 INT in the past 8 straight games.

I don't see how anybody could reasonably think Andy was the cause of this loss...

And that has relevance to the bad special teams play how?? Bad special teams play had far more to do with this loss then anything Andy did or didn't do.

You must have missed the parts of the game where the Broncos scored 7 points on a kickoff return and we missed a field goal. Special teams all day.

Whatever happened prior to this game has zero relevance to what happened during this game.

Doesn't matter who lost the game. Fact is, someone always does.
