We have reached week five of the NFL season and this is a matchup between two teams who are trying to have success in the AFC.
In this game the Miami Dolphins make the trip to Paul Brown Stadium to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in a showdown between two teams who are 3-1.
The Miami Dolphins have been one of the most surprising teams of the NFL so far this year. They had won the first three games before taking on the New England Patriots in their last game.
They got a real wakeup call and it looks like maybe they aren’t actually as good as some thought because the Patriots knocked them down.
The offense and defense really struggled and that led to a 38-7 loss. If it hadn’t been for a garbage-time touchdown they would have lost 38-0.
Ryan Tannehill had played really well in the first three games of the season, but against the Patriots they really struggled.
He finished the game throwing for 11/20 for only 100 yards and one interception. He didn’t look comfortable, and he couldn’t really complete a drive.
In this game they need to get out to a fast start and the defense needs to be a lot better. They need to find a way to slow down Andy Dalton.
If they get this game into a shootout, they are going to have an issue and they will probably fall to 3-2 on the season.
On the other side of this matchup is the Cincinnati Bengals who had a lot of question marks going into the season but they come into this game with a 3-1 record and beat the Atlanta Falcons in their last game.
On the season Andy Dalton has thrown for 1197 yards, 11 touchdowns and six interceptions. The interceptions are a bit of a concern but if the team can continue to win they will probably be forgiven.
On the defensive side of the ball the Bengals have left some to be desired, including against the Falcons where they gave up 36 points.
They let Matt Ryan sling it all over the field and in this game they can’t Tannehill do that. The defense needs to get out to a stronger start.
If Dalton can continue to play his game it probably won’t matter what the defense does, but Dalton is going to need to play his game.
They need to get out to a fast start and really put a lot of pressure on the Miami Dolphins defense early in this game.
