Quarterback—B–: Efficiency was the key word as Alex Smith earned his first NFL victory in over two years.

Running backs—B: Antonio Gibson picked up 75 of his 94 yards in the second half and scored for a fourth straight game.

Receivers—A–: Terry McLaurin made a sparkling catch and continues to be a nightmare matchup for opponents.

Offensive line—B+: A reshuffled line kept Smith relatively untouched and opened holes for 164 yards rushing.

Defensive line—A: After knocking Joe Burrow out of the game, this group devoured backup quarterback Ryan Finley.

Linebackers—C: A rotating cast did enough to hold Cincinnati to 25 total yards in the second half.

Secondary—B+: This group came up with two takeaways against a talented set of Cincinnati receivers.

Special teams—C: It wasn't costly, but Dustin Hopkins missed another makeable field goal attempt.

Coaching—B: After Burrow's departure, the defensive scheme got more aggressive, the offense more conservative.
