Week 1 of the NFL preseason is here with Chicago visiting Cincinnati. The Bears lost the opening Hall of Fame Game a week ago against Baltimore by a single point.
After a disappointing last season that ended with the failure to qualify for the playoffs, Cincinnati runs it back with Marvin Lewis and Andy Dalton leading the way.
The Bears played only the backups in their 17–16 loss to the Ravens a week ago. The defense got a nice test going up against Robert Griffin III on his comeback tour and then a full second half against Lamar Jackson, a first round pick generating lots of buzz this summer.
Tyler Bray and Chase Daniel did all the work under center for Chicago. They combined for both a pair of touchdown passes and interceptions. Benny Cunningham handled it six times for 37 yards as the primary back.
This will be the first time we see the Bengals in 2018 but it’s not likely we see any of the real familiar names. Andy Dalton and AJ Green don’t have to play in this game and probably won’t.
Lewis would be smart to avoid getting Joe Mixon hit too often. He could be a total workhorse for them this season. The Bengals will probably lean mostly on Brian Hill and some other prospective backs in this one before handing it to Mixon and Giovani Bernard.
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: the Bengals at home.
The Bears have the game advantage but is it really an advantage? It may shift the line more than anything else. I like the home team by at least three.
