We have reached week five of the NFL season and there is a lot of big games on the slate.
In this one it’s an AFC showdown between two teams who have had surprising starts to their season for their own reasons.
The Buffalo Bills will look for their fourth win of the season when they take on the Cincinnati Bengals. Last year the two teams faced off and the Bills won a low scoring game 16-12.
Coming into the season not many people had high expectations for this team, at least outside of the organization but they have opened up a lot of eyes with the way they have started this season.
They come into this game with a 3-1 record with their loss coming against the Carolina Panthers, a team that only scored nine points in the game.
So far this season they have beat Jets, Broncos and the Atlanta Falcons in their last game. Two of those three teams should be in the playoffs this year.
The strength of this team so far this season has been the defense. They haven’t given up more then 17 points this year, which is a good thing because the offense has had games where they have really struggled.
In their loss against the Panthers they only scored three points, and that’s not really because of how good the Panthers defense is.
It has to do with Tyrod Taylor and his struggles making plays at time. If they want to win this game a couple things need to happen.
Tyrod Taylor needs to play better and the offense needs to get in a rhythm early. They need to get the ball in the end zone when they have the chances and not settle for field goals.
On the defensive side of the ball they need to find a way to slow down Andy Dalton and AJ Green. They found their footing in the last game and they can’t let them throw the ball around.
On the other side of this match up is the Cincinnati Bengals who got off to a terrible start but have been playing better especially in the last two games.
They played good against the Packers two games ago but the defense let them down in the second half and that led to Aaron Rodgers leading a big comeback.
In their last game though they played the Browns, and they did exactly what you should do against a very bad team, they dominated from the get go.
They started off with no issues and that led to 31-7 victory. Andy Dalton threw for 286 yards and four touchdowns.
To win this game it’s going to come down to Andy Dalton not turning the ball over. He has been turning the ball over too much this season, and he can’t let that continue in this game.

Now that Andy Dalton is facing a real defense again I think he will really struggle early on again.
