I don’t know about you but I’m fully expecting an offensive fireworks show tonight at Paul Brown Stadium for ESPN’s monday night football (MNF). The Pats are averaging 38 PPG and their defense is looking dominant as always led by the rejuvinated Junior Seau. Don’t forget they don’t even have starters Rodney Harrison and DE Richard Seymour yet, what is this defense capable of when those two Pro Bowlers come back? New England is looking to replicate last year’s 38-13 destruction in Cincinnati last season, and come into this game on a 3 game winning streak. New England has looked unstoppable offensively in the first three weeks, with the duo of quarterback Tom Brady and wideout Randy Moss sparking blowout wins over the Jets (38-14), Chargers (38-14), and Bills (38-7).
The Bengals are back at home coming off two straight losses, and last week lost on the road to the Seahawks 24-21. Rudi Johnson was injured in that game so does Marvin Lewis just decide to not even have Kenny Watson on the field tonight and just go 4-wide all night? I’d hope he does, but then I own Palmer and Chad Johnson in some fantasy leagues…LOL. The Bengals are not off to a strong start, having followed up an opening-night win over the Ravens with back-to-back losses to the Browns (51-45) and Seahawks (24-21).
The Patriots have won the past two meetings between these teams. In October 2006 New England came out on top 38-13 as 6-point road underdogs. The combined score of that game went OVER the posted total of 46 points. In December 2004 the Pats defeated Cincinnati 35-28, but didn’t cover the 11-point home spread in the OVER play.
