The Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) have dropped two straight games with both coming at home. They’ll now hit the road for the first time since Week 11 and will square off against the Denver Broncos (7-6). Both teams have the same record and are still in playoff contention.
Cincinnati almost pulled off the comeback against the 49ers on Sunday but a lack of aggressive playcalling on offense led to the team’s demise. The defense did its part but with the offense not pulling their weight and turnovers galore on special teams, it’s no wonder the stripes recorded another loss on the resumé.
This week, the Bengals head west to Colorado for a date with the Broncos and both teams have had up and down seasons yet still are not only in playoff contention but could win their respective divisions as well.

Bengals vs Broncos Prediction Week 15
These teams are eerily similar so it’s a difficult game to predict. The Broncos have a good defense but their offense can stall sometimes even with the weapons they have, so sometimes it’s hard to figure out which Broncos team will be taking the field. When they’ve played tougher opponents, it’s been hard for them to do much so hopefully that trend continues against the Bengals.
The Bengals continue to be a confusing team, winning games they should lose and losing games they should win. With Cincy being underdogs this weekend, I’ll predict that they right the ship and get back in the win column with a 27-21 victory over the Broncos.
