Cincinnati Bengals @ New York Giants

After the midseason bye, The Bengals travel back to New York to face the Giants. As a Bengals fan living in New York, it’s difficult to debate with Giants fans because they don’t recognize how great the Bengals actually are.

However, this year we can finally get some bragging rights in the Big Apple. Well, that is, if we win. The Giants however, are a one trick pony primed to win the NFC Least. They have practically no running game and a serviceable defense at best. Yet, they do feature a two-time Super Bowl winner in Eli Manning and one of the top passing duos in the league (on paper) in Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz.

It’s going to be tough to stop the passing game, even though we know it’s coming. Cruz is coming off an injury and who knows if he’s even the same guy. We all know what Beckham is like when he gets mad.

Those two factors may be all Cincinnati needs to defeat the passing game. Aggravate Beckham and contain Cruz. Yeah, Beckham has seen Josh Norman, but never has he went up against Pacman. Adam Jones can get under anyone’s skin and will not back down. So, I’ll put my money on Jones.

The rest of the game should fall in Cincinnati’s favor, but the Giants are never easily beat.

Prediction: Bengals Win

Next: Week 11
