Predictions from the Staff
Normally I would without a doubt pick the Bengals at home against a banged up team; however, the Bengals are playing right into the favor of the Panthers. I know that their defense has not been what it was last season, but they still have some power at the linebacker position. But because the Panthers’ pass defense has struggled, it will be a bit of a break with the loss of A.J. Green this week. Andy Dalton still has Giovani Bernard. Jeremy Hill still makes plays in the passing game. Mohamed Sanu has stepped up big this season. And the Bengals play a completely different game at home. Cam Newton will not be able to scramble and create plays. And their lack of depth at wide receiver will allow the Bengals to play some creative coverages against their tight ends.
Bengals 23 – Panthers 17
The Bengals should be motivated to prove the doubters wrong following last week’s meltdown against the Patriots. They are an outstanding home team and should be able to run on the Panthers. If Hue Jackson recommits to the run game–I’m sure he will–the Bengals will be able to avoid giving Cam Newton extra possessions to work with. Limiting his time on the field will put the Panthers weakened defense in a tough spot. Despite the Bengals injuries on the offensive side of the ball, they get back on track this week with a solid win.
Bengals 31 – Panthers 20
I picture this game similar to the Atlanta game except Carolina has two things that the Falcons didn’t: a threat at tight end and a strong defense. What also is concerning is Cam Newton’s ability to run with the football; somthing this defense has struggled with. Not having Green will hurt, but won’t ultimately doom the Bengals. With Burfict and Zeitler presumably back, I see the Bengals in a close one.
Bengals 27 – Panthers 24
