It’s safe to assume tomorrow will not be ideal conditions for passing, which benefits the Bengals and their resurgent ground game. The biggest key to dealing with the weather is how well both teams hang on to the football. Even things as simple as a handoff or quarterback-center exchange will prove to be more difficult than normal.

Cincinnati (14th) and Indy (7th) rank in the upper-half of the NFL in forced fumbles. 26 combined fumbles have been forced by both defenses, and there should be at least 3-4 forced during tomorrow’s game, which may very well be decided by which team recovers those.

It’s going to be hard for either offense to be efficient with the weather, but short field generated by turnovers could lead to easy scores that ultimately decide the game.

Ball security will be key for Cincinnati earning it’s ninth victory and clinching a third-straight winning season.
