The Bengals are at home against a West Coast team in week 14, but that didn’t do them any favors last week in a 41-22 loss to the Chargers at Paul Brown Stadium. San Francisco doesn’t quite have the offense that LAC does, but there are still questions for the Cincinnati defense.
The 49ers are coming off a brutal loss of their own, falling 30-23 at division rival Seattle last Sunday. That broke a three game win streak for San Francisco and knocked them out of the final wild card spot as Washington would own the tie breaker.
San Francisco 49ers
LAC threw the ball well against the Bengals last week, with QB Justin Herbert going 26/35 for 317 yards with 3 TD and 1 INT. That means it could be another big week for the Jimmy Garoppolo / George Kittle combination, who hooked up 9 times for 181 yards and 2 TD vs. Seattle.
The Bengals rank 27th in the NFL vs. the pass, so that is the way to exploit them. Garoppolo connected on 20/30 passes vs. Seattle for 299 yards but also had 2 INTs to go with his 2 TD passes. The San Francisco QB has multiple TDs in four of the past five games.
Where San Francisco can really get an edge is with their defense. Cincinnati played very sloppy last week, losing two fumbles to go along with a couple of Joe Burrow INTs. The 49ers have the #6 total yard defense in the NFL and are 4th best vs. the pass.
At 7-5, Cincinnati is still holding on to the 2nd wild card position in the AFC, but they can’t afford another loss to a West Coast team making the trek across the Mississippi. Temps were in the 50s in Ohio in December last week, and are supposed to be similar to that when San Francisco visits in week 14.
Burrow connected on 24/40 passes last week vs. the Chargers, but also battled through a banged up finger that has him questionable for Sunday’s game. Burrow will almost certainly take the field on Sunday, but what the Bengals really need to do is get their running game going.
Joe Mixon had 19 carries for 54 yards against the Chargers, who have the worst rush defense in the NFL. Mixon had gone for 120+ in the two games prior, and San Francisco gave up 146 yards on the ground last week – although half of that came on one run.

4* Free Week 14 NFL Betting Prediction: Bengals -1
Cincinnati laid a dud last week, but they had been playing well before that in wins over Las Vegas (32-13) and Pittsburgh (41-10). Sunday’s game with the 49ers is also the third straight at home for the Bengals, who had to be woken up a bit by the Chargers’ dominance last Sunday.
San Francisco was also playing solid football prior to the Steelers loss, posting victories over the Rams and Vikings as part of their three game win streak. Ultimately this is a coin toss game.
Gotta go with the home team in the toss-up game.
