The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off of a beating that they handed to the New York Jets and they will look to continue that type of play in Miami against the Dolphins. The Dolphins are coming off a loss to the Patriots and they need to get back on the winning side if they want to get into the playoff race. With the last couple of losses, they are falling off of that playoff trail. If they want to get to the tournament, they will need to win some games against some good opponents. The Bengals are a strong team and will be looking to get home field advantage in the playoffs.
Bengals Player to Watch: Andy Dalton
Dalton has been on fire the last few games. He started out the season slow, but he had really picked it up the last few weeks. He is getting the ball to A.J. Green and getting the team in the end zone. He has led the team to 203 points in the last 3 games. During that span, he has thrown 11 touchdowns.
Dolphins Player to Watch: Ryan Tannehill
Ryan Tannehill has thrown for 5 touchdowns in the last couple of games, but he still can’t get protection from his offensive line. The team traded for Bryant McKinnie to help out with the situation. He should be able to help Tannehill out a bit. Tannehill likely will be without his right tackle Jonathan Martin now though. He left the team after an incident with his teammates. Give Tannehill some time and he will produce. Too bad he has been sacked more than any other quarterback in the NFL.
Thursday Night games always seem to be a crap shoot. The teams always have little time to prepare and the games get a little sloppier and closer than we think that htey will be. The Bengals have been on a roll and will have to quickly turn around and play this game against the Dolphins at their house. I still think that they will be able to put up some points and continue hitting Tannehill.
Bengals 20, Dolphins 13
