The most exciting games on the Bengals’ 2020 schedule
Week 13: Bengals @ Miami Dolphins
In Week 13, the main attraction for the Bengals’ game is a matchup between quarterbacks. Noticing a trend? When the Bengals visit the Miami Dolphins, rookie Joe Burrow will be facing off against college rival Tua Tagovailoa, who is a rookie himself. In 2019, this was a battle between two teams vying for the first pick in the draft. Now that the two teams have gotten their franchise quarterbacks, it will be a fight to see who got it right at the position.
At this point in the season, Tagovailoa will likely have taken the starting quarterback job from veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick. Second-year head coaches Zac Taylor and Brian Flores will be looking to prove that their franchise quarterback is better than the other’s.
As it was in 2019, this could be a high scoring game. This time, however, it will be between two up-and-coming teams as opposed to two tanking teams. This was one of the Bengals’ most exciting matchups in 2019 and with new stakes in 2020, it will only get better.
The winner of this game won’t determine who has the better franchise quarterback, but it will be the first time the two face off in the NFL. Coming from the same draft class, Burrow and Tagovailoa will be compared to each other for their entire careers and they will both be looking to make a point when the face off in Week 13.
