Bengals at Giants
The Bengals are still very much in the race in the AFC North even though they come into this game with a losing record. The problem for Cincinnati is that this game is in prime time and they have historically flopped under head coach Marvin Lewis under the lights.
The Bengals are scoring about 21 points per game and allowing just about 24 per contest.
The Giants are at 5-3 and coming off a huge win over Philadelphia so New York is in good position entering the second half of the season. The Giants are doing what they have to do so far this season and that is win at home. Teams that win at home make the playoffs as all 12 playoff teams last season had a winning record at home. In recent season the Giants haven’t done well at MetLife Stadium and because of their poor home mark they have missed the playoffs in the last three years. This year the Giants are 3-1 at home. The Giants play the next two at home and if they win those games against the Bengals and Bears then the Giants would be in great shape to make the playoffs and maybe even make a run at the Cowboys for the division title.
“That sounds good,” said wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. “Just trying to win the division.” “I think it’s good, but it can always be better,” linebacker Devon Kennard said. “Now we’re at a situation where we can control our own destiny, and we have to continue to play well.” New York is scoring just 20 points per game and allowing 20 points per contest this season.
