Halftime: The Bengals should feel incredibly fortunate to only be trailing the Bills 14-0 at the break. Cincinnati had only 77 total yards. Fifty-seven of them came on two plays, including a late 33-yard completion against a prevent defense. However, the Bills haven't been able to turn a massive stats advantage into a bigger lead. Buffalo outgained the Bengals by 180 yards and has only one touchdown to show for it.

Ahead of this week's Bills-Bengals game, it's interesting to go back and look at the 2018 trade between the two teams. In March of that year, the Bills traded offensive tackle Cordy Glenn to the Bengals. As part of the deal, the teams swapped first-round picks. In April, the Bills then flipped the pick from the Bengals to move up five additional spots to draft quarterback Josh Allen, who is expected to make his 14th career start when Buffalo hosts Cincinnati. Glenn hasn't played yet this season as he's dealing with the effects of a concussion he suffered during the preseason. Cincinnati used the pick from the Bills to take offensive lineman Billy Price, who started this season on the bench.

The Bengals' inability to convert yards into points is a big reason they are 0-2 heading into this week's game against Buffalo. Cincinnati is last in the NFL in red zone efficiency and has only 23 points to show for 10 drives inside the opponent's 40-yard line. Bengals coach Zac Taylor said the team needs to stop commiting drive-altering penalties. "We prepare our red zone gamplan every single week and it feels like we haven't even gotten to use it yet," Taylor said. "There's just been silly stuff that keeps us moving backward."

Bengals starting left guard Michael Jordan is expected to be out for Cincinnati's Week 3 game at Buffalo, coach Zac Taylor said on Monday. Jordan was carted off the field during Sunday's 41-17 loss to the 49ers after he suffered a left knee injury. Jordan was seen walking through the locker room with a noticeable limp on Monday. Back-up center Billy Price, the team's first-round pick in 2018, played at left guard in Jordan's absence. However, Taylor was hesitant to say Price will start at left guard against the Bills. "That's a conversation we're still having upstairs to make sure we have the right depth at spots and we're putting everybody where they need to go," Taylor said. The Bengals could be without both starters on the left side of the offensive line. Left tackle Cordy Glenn is still out with a concussion that he suffered during the preseason.

Bengals DE Carlos Dunlap didn't want to compare Sunday's historically bad defensive showing to last year's historically bad unit. Even though the Bengals allowed 572 yards in the 41-17 loss to the 49ers, the fifth-most in franchise history, Dunlap didn't want to lump the performance in with last year's woes. "This is an isolated incident," Dunlap said. "This is not a snowball effect…. There's no whiff of last year. We know who we are this year. We worked too hard to change this culture and create a new identity for ourselves."

After a strong defensive showing in the opener, the Bengals are struggling today against San Francisco. The 49ers moved the ball effectively in the first half and are ahead 24-10. The visitors are averaging 8.8 yards per play, which doubles Cincinnati's 4.4 YPP. The difference in the game is on the ground. San Francisco appears to be winning at the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. The 49ers are outrushing the Bengals 94 to 20.

Bengals RB Joe Mixon, listed as questionable for Sunday with a sprained ankle, is planning to play vs. the 49ers, but wants to test the injury in pregame warmups just to make sure first, per source. But going in, Mixon plans to play.

Ben Baby ESPN Staff Writer 

Bengals running Joe Mixon is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers, according to the injury report issued Friday. After he missed the previous practices during the week, Mixon was a limited participant on Friday. Coach Zac Taylor said Mixon has responded well to the ankle injury he suffered in the season opener at Seattle, which is a good sign for Mixon's availability this weekend.
