This matchup features two AFC foes. One being the Denver Broncos out of the AFC West and the Cincinnati Bengals out of the AFC North. Both teams are fighting hard for a potential wild card spot, and with how jumbled the AFC is, both teams are most certainly in contention.
These teams last met in November of 2017. Cincinnati won this game in Denver 20-17. In fact the away team has won the last two games in a row when these teams have met.
The Broncos have now won two games in a row, improving their overall record to 5-6. They are now well in the race for a wild card spot. The last two teams they defeated were the Steelers and the Chargers. Both of these teams have played great football this year, so the fact that Denver was able to defeat both of them is promising as the season starts to wind down.
One surprise to the Denver offense this season is the emergence of running back, Phillip Lindsay. Lindsay leads the team in rushing, having picked up 780 yards and has scored 7 touchdowns so far. The Broncos offense has by no means put up stats like the Rams or Chiefs, but they have certainly played better than most might have thought. The biggest problem has been their inability to put up a ton of points. They only score about 22.9 points per game, which has led to some disappointing losses this season.
The Broncos defense like their offense does not put up the stats they are expected too. They allow 389.3 total yards per game, which is near the bottom of the league. However, they seem to do a good job of keeping their opponents out of the end-zone as they allow about 22.9 points. They also seem to force turnovers in crucial moments of the game, like this past week when they picked off Big Ben in the red zone to halt the game tying drive.
The key for the Broncos will be forcing turnovers. Andy Dalton has been know to throw a lot of interceptions and the Broncos should be able to take advantage of this throughout the game.
The Bengals are in a downward spiral, losing their last three games in a row. Getting beat handily by the Cleveland Browns is never good, especially when you lose at home.
The Bengals offense has not been the same without wide receiver, AJ Green who has now been out several weeks with a lingering injury. Not to mention, Andy Dalton was just placed on the injured reserve after suffering a thumb injury against the Brown. Jeff Driskel will make his first career start against the Broncos, so look for the Bengals to try an establish the run game to ease Driskel into this contest.
The Bengals are quite possibly the worst defense in all of football based on their stats. They are allowing a whopping 31.5 points per game, and 439.6 total yards per game. They must force the Broncos into turning the ball over or this one get out of hand very quickly.
