So what is the biggest question coming into Week 3 for the Cincinnati Bengals?  What team are fans going to see? Is it the Bengals team who almost beat a playoff and possibly even Super Bowl contender in Seattle? Or is the Cincinnati team who took the air out of Paul Brown Stadium with an absolute stinker in Week 2 against an only interesting 49ers team?

Who knows?

I tweeted on Sunday while watching the Bengals that Week 1 in the National Football League can be an absolute mirage. However, you could almost say the same about Week 2 and the Bengals.

It is difficult to believe that Cincinnati is as good as fans saw in Seattle or as bad as they were at home. All watchers can do entering Week 3 is scratch their head and go with what seems logical. Somewhere in the middle of both performances is what the real Cincinnati Bengals team is.

Conventional wisdom says to go with the Buffalo Bills in their home opener. They have built momentum with two wins on the road, have a better defense, and will probably make enough plays on offense to beat a Bengals team who will play better, just not better enough to win on the road. It’ll be a tough pill to swallow for Cincinnati fans, but they fall to 0-3 to begin the 2019 campaign.

Bengals-21
Bills-27
