Must-Win Games for Cincinnati Bengals: Week 6 at Detroit
With a Super Bowl start and a career passer rating of just over 91 to his name, new Lions quarterback Jared Goff can win in a lot of situations but faces an uphill battle with the Lions.
- Dan Campbell is a non-interim head coach for the first time. His cringeworthy introductory press conference has to worry Lions fans about what kind of coach he’ll be when the season gets underway.
- The receiving group lacks any kind of proven threat.
- Most importantly, the defense gave up the most points in the NFL last year. It is nearly impossible to fix that in one offseason.
Adding Goff and some draft picks was a good move for the rebuilding Lions but this team isn’t going to scare anyone in 2021. The Bengals might not be a lock to win in most of their games this year but this is one game that they have to win or Taylor’s job security should be hanging by a thread (and rightfully so).
The Bengals offense could have lots of fun on Oct. 17th when they head to the Motor City for a date with the Lions. It’s also worth noting that the schedule heats up a little bit after this game so the Bengals need all of the W’s they can get.
