Preview: The 3-0 Cincinnati Bengals will play host to the 1-2 Kansas City Chiefs, who may be the best 1-2 team in the NFL at this moment. This will be the Bengals toughest test to date, yes Ravens fans, even tougher than you at home.
The Cincinnati Bengals will look to continue its offensive dominance that they have shown in the first three weeks of the season. The Bengals have not gotten to 4-0 since 2005, could this be the year? That being said, they will need to play 60 minutes of football to do so. The offense has seen a large improvement with Dalton making the calls at the line and all their skill players staying healthy to this point.
The Cincinnati Defense has been solid in the first 30 minutes of every game so far but has left room for improvement in the second half of week two and three. They will need to pressure Alex Smith and limit Jamaal Charles from making big runs out of the backfield. The receiving core will look very familiar to the Baltimore Ravens team they saw a week ago. Jeremy Maclin has led this receiving core with tight end Travis Kelce not far behind.
The Kansas City Chiefs will need to see a huge improvement in defense in just one week. The Packers put up 38 points, 24 of which were first half points. The Bengals, who are another well balanced offense, will look to repeat what the Packers did on Monday night. The Chiefs pass defense will be led by returning corner Sean Smith and rookie Marcus Peters, both will need to be crisp if they plan on limiting the passing attack of the Bengals.
This game is lining up to be one of the best on the weekend but we will have to wait until Sunday around 4pm to find out who comes out on top. The Bengals could be up two games on the division if they find a way to win, which would be welcomed distance for when Ben Roethlisberger returns to the Steelers in a few weeks and the Ravens wake up from the nightmare of an 0-3 start.
