Cincinnati Bengals vs Miami Dolphins
In the season, the Cincinnati were captured off-guard by the Dolphins in Week 5, falling 17-13 thanks to a tragic performance by Andy Dalton Bengals QB . This year, they'll be encountering a retooled Miami roster on the national stage as well as wishing for a various outcome.
The Miami loss in last season assisted unveil Dalton's problems with pressure. This is an area he'll likely invest the entire offseason improving. If he can do so and also manage to obtain the sphere out of his hands without making numerous blunders, they need to be able to exact their revenge on a team that ought to be substantially outpaced, no matter of their cost-free firm and also draft additions.
Miami Dolphins vs Cincinnati Bengals
The Miami will do not like the schedule-makers for scheduling such a tough schedule to begin the period; nonetheless, the Cincinnati could have a more genuine gripe. The Cincinnati play a ruthless stretch of games around mid-year that includes 4 out of 5 games when driving, including a road game off of a short week. History is not on the side of groups traveling when driving for a short week, and also that it will certainly be the Cincinnati 3rd road game in a simple 18 days need to be a factor. This is one game where I would certainly never be startled to see Ryan Tannehill press a QB advantage about Andy Dalton. As well as for once, I might see also a Keller-less strict end device offering slower linebackers like Vontaze Burfict as well as Rey Maualuga difficulty in the death game.
A.J. Green is so excellent that no group truly presses an advantage versus him; nonetheless, the Miami have an extremely good No. 1 edge themselves, which could leave an advantage in their support versus Bengals other undetermined receivers. The Miami pass defense will certainly have its hands complete completely around in between Carlos Dunlap, Michael Johnson, Geno Atkins and James Harrison . The linebackers could possibly likewise have their hands complete with Jermaine Gresham as well as Tyler Eifert . However, I still seek the Miami to gain this game against a Bengals group that might look gassed.
Prediction: Bengals, 23-13
