The Cincinnati Bengals are hosting the Denver Broncos in NFL Football action on Sunday afternoon. The game is scheduled for a 1:00 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on CBS. The NFL Odds for the game have the Bengals favored by a field goal to pick up the win.
Total: 41 points
This could be a tough game for the Denver Broncos, who are coming off a pair of wins to open the season, beating both Carolina and Indianapolis. Yet now youngster quarterback Trevor Siemian will make his first career start on the road, and in a place where it’s not that easy to win.
For the Broncos to have a chance to win in Ohio this weekend, Siemian has to play better. The youngster has three interceptions his opening two games, which could hurt them on the road in this one.
Cincinnati lost last week in Pittsburgh, a game where they out-gained the Steelers by 40 yards and Andy Dalton had a huge game with 366 yards through the air. The Bengals have not run the football very well in either of their first two games, they’re lucky to be 1-1 after a pair of road games and no rushing attack at all.
Running the ball against Denver might look tough on paper, but the Broncos are surrendering 120 yards on the ground to opponents through the first two games. Cincinnati has to establish the run game at some point to be a serious threat in the AFC.
Denver’s defense has been outstanding and hasn’t given up more than 20 points in any of the last seven games. That defense, coupled with Cincinnati’s struggles on offense, could be the difference again.
