CINCINNATI (AP) — Bengals coordinator Jay Gruden says his offense still hasn't developed an identity.

Cincinnati can do a lot more this season with rookie tight end Tyler Eifert and running back Giovani Bernard as options, but it hasn't blended together smoothly. Cincinnati failed to score a touchdown during a 17-6 loss in Cleveland on Sunday.

Left tackle Andrew Whitworth agrees that the offense needs to develop an identity, and fast. The Bengals (2-2) host New England (4-0) on Sunday, and Whitworth points out that a team unsure of itself can get taken apart by the Patriots.

The Bengals were led by running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis and All-Pro receiver A.J. Green last season. The offense hasn't done anything consistently well so far while blending in the newcomers.
