Fresh off of beating the Browns, the Miami Dolphins will travel to Ohio to take on the state’s other team, the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals are reeling a bit, not being able to beat two of the AFC’s playoff contenders in Pittsburgh and Denver over the past two weeks.
I predicted that Cincinnati would face issues heading into Week 1 when they were without so many of their offensive weapons (and Hue Jackson) from a year ago, but I was tricked into thinking otherwise after the fact when they handled the Jets pretty well. The cracks became clearer over the past two weeks, but they’ll be getting Tyler Eifert back soon, and those who read my previews last week know that I don’t have much faith in Ryan Tannehill. Bengals 24, Dolphins 17
