It is put up or shut up time for one of the AFC’s preseason faves in the Bengals as they look to avoid a deathly 1-3 start. The Bengals have played some good football thus far this year, but really blew an opportunity at home last week against the Denver Broncos to come into this game with a winning record.
Miami on the other hand tried several times to give the game away to the Browns last week after taking a big lead early on. The Dolphins seem to be a true riddle so far this year as they can look the part of a playoff caliber team one moment, then the next look like a team that might struggle to get to 6 wins.
This is an elimination game of sorts even though it is only week four as the team that loses this one is going to be in big early season trouble as far as a playoff berth goes. The Fins have been playing better on offense, but against a tough Bengals D it is going to be a long day for Ryan Tannehill and company. Look for Cincy to flex their muscle early and often and for this game to get away from Miami in the first half with a dominating performance by Bengals WR A.J Green.
