Offensive spotlight: In a game that bore a closer resemblance to his performances last season, Joe Burrow completed 28-of-37 attempts for 300 yards and three touchdown passes. He averaged 8.1 yards per attempt, and three of his passes were dropped by his receivers.
Defensive spotlight: Saints cornerback Paulson Adebo has been targeted early and often this season, and the ball came his way 11 times in this game. He allowed eight catches for 74 yards and a touchdown.
Rookie spotlight: Saints rookie receiver Rashid Shaheed played nine snaps on offense and showcased elite speed and quickness with the ball in his hands. He drew one target, but his big play was a 44-yard carry where he made multiple defenders miss on his way to the end zone.
Offensive line spotlight: Bengals left tackle Jonah Williams had an ugly day in pass protection for the Bengals, surrendering multiple pressures and several more pass-protection losses that didn’t get a chance to become pressure. Cincinnati’s line was better overall, but they are still prone to bad lapses.
