Cincinnati Bengals vs. Washington Redskins
Speaking of Jay Gruden, the Bengals see their former OC in Week 8, just before the bye week. By now, Cincinnati should be sitting atop the AFC North at 6-1. This is a game the Bengals are going to have to find motivation for.
A week before the bye and no real rivalry with this team. It may end up causing the Bengals to slip. The Redskins are a solid team, but let’s not act like they should really be any competition for Cincinnati.
Yes, they won the NFC East last year. But, was that actually hard to do? They didn’t beat a winning team, during the regular season or do anything in the playoffs. The Redskin shouldn’t strike fear in anyone. Individually, the speed of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson, plus Josh Doctson and Jordan Reed are really good. Yet, the team hasn’t shown they can put it all together.
Therefore, the Bengals should get a win. But, the Redskins get paid too….This is definitely a trap game.
Prediction: Bengals Win
Next: Week 10
