The Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions will face-off in Week 7 after both teams were able to earn hard-fought road wins this past week. The Bengals blew a 14-point fourth quarter lead, but overcame the Buffalo Bills in overtime, 27-24.

The Lions trailed the Cleveland Browns by 10 going into halftime, but scored 24-straight points in the second-half to win handily by a 31-17 score. Sunday’s contest will likely feature a shootout in the Ford Field dome. The Lions have scored 74 points in two games at home and scored 24+ points in five of their past six home games overall. Much of this has been due to their dynamic passing attack, which ranks No. 2 in the NFL, but the Bengals do sport the league’s 9th-ranked pass defense, so it will be clash of contrasting styles so to say.
