This is a match up between a pair of 4-2 teams, the Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions. It also is match up of divisional leaders. The Bengals are in first place in the AFC North division while the Lions are tied for first with the Chicago Bears in the NFC North.
The Bengals knocked off a NFC North team earlier this season when they beat the Green Bay Packers in a wild game. They also handed the New England Patriots their first and only loss of the season so far. The Bengals shouldn’t be taken lightly.
The Bengals two losses came against the Chicago Bears, and the Cleveland Browns, a team that ranks in the top 10 in defense against the pass and run.
The Detroit Lions have had an impressive start to the season as well. They’ve defeated quality opponents like the Cleveland Browns and the Chicago Bears. They lost to the Green Bay Packers though.
“We still have a long way to go, but when you look at our four wins, when we win the turnover battle, it puts us in good position to win the game,” coach Jim Schwartz said, via ESPN.
This game could be exciting to watch for two reasons. The Joseph Fauria touchdown dance watch and to see what Ndamukong Suh does this week.
