On Sunday, the 5-0 Cincinnati Bengals will take on the 3-2 Buffalo Bills in Buffalo. The Bengals have gotten off to a hot start, winning five straight–three in a decisive fashion and two in hard-fought battles that lasted until the final minutes of the game. The Bills have knocked off the Colts, Dolphins and Titans, showing significant improvement from 2014. However, the team’s two losses and injury issues across the board suggest that this team is capable of much more than what its record indicates. EJ Manuel will start at quarterback in place of the injured Tyrod Taylor, while Andy Dalton will look to help the Bengals enter their bye week with a 6-0 record.

With that, here are three matchups to watch:
