Denver (-5) at Cincinnatti (12-2-18)

Recommended Posts

1 p.m. EST.....Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta (This isn't as high-profile game is it) on CBS

Upper 50s and sunny at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnatti  over-under at 45.

 

Speedy runaround backup QB Jeff Driskel (23 of 38, 230 yards) makes makes his NFL staring debut in place of injured Andy Dalton. He'll have all-pro AJ Green ( 45 catches, 687 yards) back of the injured list and hard running Joe Mixon (142 carries, 673 yards) to hand off to.

KC's left tackle Cody Glenn is doubtful......tackle Jake Fisher just went on injured reserve...

Bengals have lost 3 in a row...and the BigCat defense has allowed 4,836 yards (439 per game) in 11 games

 

Denver 'Everyman'  QB Chase Keenum (244 of 390, 2,802 yards, 13 TDs, 10 INTs) is playing better but he wont have tight end Jeff Heuremen who was hurt last week and is out for the year, the 3rd tight end to go on injured reserve for the Broncos.   Rookie Phillip Lindsey (135 carries, 760 yards) will get the ball a lot, especially if top WR Emmanuel Sanders (67 catches, 849 yards) is out with a foot injury.

Denver has 32 sacks but they will start rookie Issac Yiadom in the secondary and that's not a blueprint for winning .

 

This is pretty much an elimination game in the AFC. The Broncos (5-6) have won their last two but they almost certainly cant reach the playoffs with a seventh loss if they lose the tiebreaker to the Bengals (5-6). Both teams are chasing the Ravens (6-5) and Colts (6-5) for the No.6 playoff spot...but the Bengals have 3 road games left (Cleveland, Pitt and SD)

The spread is too high. Denver has only scored 28 offensive TDs all year.

 The  'Driskel Kid' playing QB for Cincy didn't look bad last week. he can run away from sacks  and Bengals fans are ready for 'ABD' (anybody but Dalton).

 

Take the Bengals with five points.

The Broncos are on the up. They are the team you should be worried about. They are just 1 game behind for the 6th seed

The reason to worry about Cincy is, obviously, that they own the tiebreaker over the Colts and Miami

If Denver (5-6) wins today, the next 3 games are SF (2-9), Cleveland (4-6-1) and Oakland (2-9)

 

(To be honest, even if they lose today, those  are the next 3 games):bossy:

But the Bengals lost Andy Dalton and the Broncos have been doing better, so in terms of the playoff race, I’m more worried about the Broncos based off that

A Bengals win would help because that would put Denver in a world of hurt and the Bengals still have games at Chargers, at Steelers, and at Browns so they are toast anyway.

Yeah we have to get in first and we need the ravens to lose for that to happen

Dalton is done for the season and their defensive isn't dominant as it used to be

  Denver 24, Cincy 10 - final

 

Bengals (5-7) are spam.  Broncos (6-6) are alive but without Chris Harris on the corner they have major problems going forward against real QBs
