The Cincinnati Bengals might be playing for nothing more than pride at this point in the season. That hasn’t stopped the last-place team from completely embarrassing itself.
The latest example of this came in the form of backup quarterback Jeff Driskel. Replacing an injured Andy Dalton under center, the former late-round pick was absolutely horrendous against Cleveland in the first half on Sunday.
How bad? Driskel completed 2-of-6 passes for three yards en route to seeing his Bengals trail 16-0. Equally as impressive, Cincinnati finished the first half with negative-15 net passing yards.
Jeff Driskel’s first half against the Browns:
2-of-6 passing three yards. Bengals have negative-15 net passing yards.

That’s hard to do. In fact, we’re just going to go ahead and congratulate Cincinnati for a level of futility few before it has reached.
Hue Jackson is doing well in Cincinnati.
