The quarterback told reporters: "Having two tight ends is big, because you can do different stuff in different personnel packages. That's the biggest thing we've been able to do, doing things in different personnel groups where we get those guys matched up.
"They've definitely helped the passing game. Last week they both make big catches that help us win the game. We're going to continue to rely on those guys. These guys are doing so much and they're just bigger guys, bigger receivers.
"But they can also block well. That's one of the things you can see out of both. I think Jermaine is probably one of the best blocking tight ends in the NFL, and Tyler's done a great job since he's been here. Both guys are well-rounded guys. They're not just pass-catching tight ends."
The Bengals host the New York Jets this Sunday.
