    CINCINNATI (AP) — The Bengals‘ redesigned offense had quite an opening month Shawn Williams Jersey White , putting up yards and points at a far better rate than in the past two seasons.With opponents getting a better idea of what they’re doing, Andy Dalton and company have sputtered in the past three games.It’s more than just familiarity. Running back Giovani Bernard is sidelined by a knee injury, receiver John Ross has been limited by a groin injury, and the tight end position has been decimated by injuries. What’s left hasn’t been able to do much.The Bengals (4-3) head into a game Sunday against Tampa Bay (3-3) looking to stop the slide as they reach the season’s midpoint and their bye week.“We did some things early on in the season that were really good,” quarterback Andy Dalton said Wednesday.In the first four games, Cincinnati’s offense averaged 24.5 first downs and 376.5 total yards. In the past three, it has managed only 17 first downs per game and 282 yards Rodney Anderson Cincinnati Bengals Jersey , both significant drops.Dalton’s numbers reflect the trend . He threw for 1,197 yards with 11 touchdowns in the first four games. In the past three, he’s thrown for 625 yards with four touchdowns.Their worst showing by far came Sunday night during a 45-10 loss in Kansas City . The Bengals had a season-low 15 first downs and 239 yards against a defense that was last in the league. Dalton threw for only 148 yards and had an interception returned for a touchdown .The offense was shockingly limited in the first half. A.J. Green had six catches for 110 yards. The rest of the receivers combined for four catches for 8 yards. Green accounted for 110 of Cincinnati’s 139 yards as the Chiefs took control.“A couple of us had quiet games in the first half,” said receiver Tyler Boyd, who had three catches for 27 yards overall. “I definitely wanted to make more plays in the first half to ease off A.J. I know he was tired at times, and he made a ton of plays.”The Chiefs adjusted their coverage on Green in the second half and nobody else was able to take advantage.“We have to be able to react and adjust in-game and get back on track,” Dalton said. “Our goal is to get back to the way we were playing and the way we know we can play.”The most glaring drop-off has been at the tight end spot with Tyler Eifert done for the season with a broken ankle and Tyler Kroft sidelined by a foot injury. C.J. Uzomah had two catches for 13 yards.Coordinator Bill Lazor told the offense this week that good teams improve as the season goes along Rodney Anderson Jersey 2019 , and it’s time to get out of the recent rut.“We’re always mentioning that the sky’s the limit for this offense, and Bill was pointing out we’re declining,” Boyd said.BURFICT STRUGGLINGLinebacker Vontaze Burfict has repeatedly missed tackles since returning from his four-game suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancers. He also was fined $112,000 for several egregious plays during a loss to the Steelers, including hitting Antonio Brown in the head again.In his three games, Burfict has a total of 17 tackles, no sacks Color Rush Rodney Anderson Jersey , no interceptions and two passes broken up. He landed on his hip during Sunday’s game and was held out of practice on Wednesday.“He hasn’t played as well as he has in the past,” coach Marvin Lewis said. Asked to elaborate, Lewis said, “I don’t want to talk about Vontaze. It’s not relevant.”ALSO SIDELINEDBurfict was one of 10 players held out of practice, along with CB Darqueze Dennard (shoulder), CB Dre Kirkpatrick (Achilles), LB Nick Vigil (knee) Cheap Rodney Anderson Jersey , long snapper Clark Harris (concussion), RB Giovani Bernard (knee), OT Jake Fisher (back), OT Bobby Hart (back), Kroft and Ross.Rookie center Billy Price returned to practice on a limited basis. He’s been sidelined for five weeks by a partially torn ligament in his right foot. DT Adolphus Washington was limited by a tailbone injury. The first domino of free agency has fallen for the Bengals."The Bengals have re-signed tight end C.J. Uzomah to a three-year deal worth more than $18 million, per Ian Rapoport.Uzomah is the first of Cincinnati’s unrestricted free agents to re-sign with the team.After being drafted by the team in the fifth round in 2015, Uzomah has slowly worked his way up to becoming a starter in the Bengals’ offense. Originally behind Tyler Eifert and then Tyler Kroft Rodney Anderson Jersey Womens , Uzomah saw more offensive snaps in 2018 (839) than he did from 2015-2017 (670) due to Eifert and Kroft both suffering season-ending injuries. His 15 starts in 2018 topped his previous season-high of eight in 2016.In 2018, Uzomah accounted for 439 receiving yards and three touchdowns on 43 receptions; taking his career totals to 769 yards and five touchdowns on 79 receptions. His work as a blocker for running back Joe Mixon was also commendable and a key factor to Mixon’s breakout season.Beyond that, Uzomah battled through a shoulder injury for most of the season and ended up playing the fourth-most snaps for the offense — and the most for all non-offensive lineman. With this deal, Uzomah is likely entrenched as the starting tight end going forward. With head coach Zac Taylor is taking over the offense and comes from an offense with the Los Angeles Rams that ran 11 personnel (one tight end on the field) for more than 90% of the time. It’s still possible that either Eifert or Kroft return along with Uzomah, but Uzomah seems poised to be the main option at the position for the foreseeable future.Keep it locked in here at Cincy Jungle for all the latest updates in free agency
