The Cincinnati Bengals are fresh off their BYE week and are heading to Sin City to take on the Las Vegas Raiders. Who’s on the call for this AFC showdown?
The last time we saw the Bengals in action, they were getting their butts whooped by the Browns, losing 41-16 and the game being over by halftime. The week prior, they were defeated by the-then one-win Jets, so it was a rough two-game stretch for the stripes.
The Raiders — Cincy’s opponent this week — find themselves in a similar situation. They too were 5-2 and leading their division and then dropped two games in a row. The first loss for Vegas was to the Giants in a close, but frustrating game. The second loss came this past Sunday night against the Chiefs, who blew the doors off the Raiders.
It goes without saying that this is one of the better games on tap this weekend, so it’s not surprising that they’re getting one of the more high-profile broadcasting teams this weekend.
Who is on the call for Bengals vs Raiders in Week 11?
This week’s game will be called by Ian Eagle, Charles Davis, and Evan Washburn. Bengals fans were getting used to Kevin Harlan calling their games but Eagle will be the voice we all hear this weekend for Cincinnati vs. Las Vegas.
Two 5-4 teams squaring off is huge because the winner moves to 6-4 while the loser is now sitting at .500 on the year. For the Bengals, that’d trudge up “Fire Zac Taylor” talks after they had died down following the team’s 5-2 start and first-place standing in the AFC North. It’d be a crushing loss for either side but unless a tie takes place, it’ll be happening to either the Bengals or Raiders.
How do you feel about Ian Eagle and Charles Davis being on the call for this week’s game?
