I'm not gonna allow myself to overthink this one. Gonna roll my MNF Patriot win right onto this one.
CINC - 5
Nick foles heckuva pitching job against the Bucs to end 8 game losing streak. But Eagles rushed for 29 yds. in only 16 attempts. Not a misprint. 29 yards. Doesn't usually work out too well at this level. Especially against a team that has outrushed other team by 350 yds in last 4 games (KC, Oak, SD, Dallas). Theyve also outscored last 5 opponents by 70 pts. They are 2-1 vs NFL East and have outscored 88-64. After final minute meltdown last week, Cinc really needs this win with last 2 games vs Steelers and Ravens. And of mention, Bengals 8-0 ats last 8 vs Phil
As for total, lean Under but not playing it. I think Dalton plays it close to vest with 3 picks last 2 games and Cinc should control time of possession. Bengals have stayed Under last 4 and 8 of last 10.
