What can fans look for when the 0-3-1 Arizona Cardinals visit the 0-4 Cincinnati Bengals? When the desperate get together in Week 5, knowing who can and cannot deliver is key.
The Cincinnati Bengals end the first quarter of the 2019 NFL season with a dismal record of 0-4. As such, they limp into Week 5, a home game against the Arizona Cardinals, looking to break into the win column.
The Cardinals might be the perfect opponent. Arizona is also winless with a record of 0-3-1. They also have the top overall draft pick at quarterback in Kyler Murray, who looks to be improving week to week. Against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 4, Arizona showed an ability to move the football, but red zone scoring is still elusive for the rookie quarterback and his rookie head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
For Cincinnati, it’s a familiar tale. The Bengals look to have lost all the Week 1 potential in the span of three games. Head coach Zac Taylor looked lost and befuddled in the lost at Pittsburgh and on the whole, what was hoped would be a turnaround kind of season looks to be more about figuring out what’s next.
Week 5 will tell a lot about where the Bengals are headed. With A.J. Green still weeks away, and another lost year for John Ross, winning may prove tough, and those who were counted on for a “New Dey” have yet to deliver. Here are four fans should look to buy, sell, or hold heading to Week 5.
