After a critical road win against the San Francisco 49ers, the Cincinnati Bengals are now preparing for the Buffalo Bills. However, the defense’s hidden weapon, Lou Anarumo, is gaining popularity after the defense shut down the 49ers’ strong offense.
Anarumo has been notorious for his “second-half adjustments” in recent years, and that continued on Sunday when the Bengals defense repeatedly turned Brock Purdy over. After the 31-17 victory, Zac Taylor discussed why the players enjoy playing for Lou.

“He (Lou) is the best. He puts these guys in the position, and that is half the battle,” Taylor said. “The other half of the battle is the guys having confidence and believing he is going to put them in the right position, and they do.”
Taylor went on to say, “He pushes the right buttons at the right time. He does a great job at being emotional and then composed like great defensive coordinators do. Love him to death.”
The Bengals appear to have found their groove with the most important part of their schedule now here as they look to go on a run and make it back to the NFL Playoffs.
