Bengals rookie quarterback Ryan Finley got his chance with the second offense last night, and turned in another performance that could help him earn the backup job.
The fourth-round pick finished the night against Washington 20-of-26 for 150 yards and two touchdowns.
“He was very cool and calm. We’ve got a lot of confidence with him in there,” Bengals coach Zac Taylor said , via Tyler Dragon of the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I thought he did a nice job.”
Finley’s stat line included completing his first eight passes, as he led a 12-play, 93-yard touchdown drive upon entering the game, after the starters managed two punts and an interception in three series.
