Big statistical mismatches in this one.  This game will be decided in the trenches.  The Bengals defense ranks 1st in adjusted sack rate recording sacks on 8.7% of dropbacks.  On the other side the Eagles o-line ranks 26th in pass protection giving up sacks on 7.9% of dropbacks.  The Bengals secondary has also been playing very well since Leon Hall returned.  Expect the Bengals D to be up in the face of rookie Nick Foles and force turnovers as the depleted receiving corps of Philly struggles to get separation.  On the other side of the ball expect AJ Green to torch the Eagles secondary.  The Eagles showed last week against Vincent Jackson that they struggle against vertical, big play receivers.  AJ Green may be the biggest deep threat in the league and will light up the Eagles secondary that ranks 31st against number 1 wide receivers this year.  The Eagles also rank a lackluster 17th in defending the tight end meaning the Red Rifle's two biggest receiving threats should find plenty of separation.  Couple all of this with and rookie QB on a short week and you have...

Bengals -3.5

GL to all

Ideal start for Cincy.  Philly is going to have to drop back and pass a lot to get out of this hole.

I know.  I was going to post at halftime and say replace "Bengals" with "Eagles" in the write up.  Although the Bengals didn't rack up sacks they were still able to create havoc and make plays on d.
