Where did the Bengals offense go?

If you started anyone in a Cincinnati Bengals uniform this week, you probably just got done punching the wall.

Carson Palmer failed to complete 50 percent of his passes and threw for 99 yards with 0 touchdowns and 1 interception. Chad Ocho Cinco caught one pass for 22 yards, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh hauled in three passes for 44 yards.

Chris Perry, the team’s new starting running back, finished with 42 scrimmage yards and lost one fumble.

Things can only improve (we hope) after this debacle, but the performances of Palmer, Ocho Cinco and Houshmandzadeh were no less than awful.

How bad were they?

Well, 44 year-old Giants kicker John Carney had more fantasy points on NFL.com than all three combined.
