Bengals Relying On The Plan That Got Them Here VS Ravens

For the second consecutive year, the Cincinnati Bengals are hosting a playoff game with injuries in their offensive line.

Starting guard Alex Cappa and tackle La’el Collins are both out of Monday’s matchup with the Ravens.

At this point in the calendar, it’s about relying on your training for the backups. Center Ted Karras says it’s time for everybody on the Bengals to raise their game.

“The O-line is a continuity and repetition position,” Karras said, via The Associated Press.

“We’ve been repping all year, but it will be hard, especially to replace Alex because of our relationship, just how to ID the defense, how to distribute all our blockers. He’s been a humongous help to me, saved me a few times over the season. So I had to step it up. Everyone’s got to step it up. Max has a great opportunity in front of him, and I’m excited to see how he performs.”

We’re still going to be who we are as an offense and run a lot of the things that we’ve run and have had success with over the course of the season.”
