The Cincinnati Bengals are a team that I have been very excited about.
I like the moves this team has made in the last couple of seasons and the fact that they are still able to reach the playoffs.
With young stars like Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green leading this team, they will soon be a major threat in the entire league. It’s only a matter of team until this group breaks out and takes down the top teams in the AFC to become the best in the conference.
It won’t be right away, but they have all the right pieces so far to make this possible.
Now to today’s game against the New York Jets.
The Jets are looking like a different team despite having a rookie quarterback who makes mistakes. All that will pass over as his game at the professional level will improve over the years. With both defenses containing Tom Brady and defeating the New England Patriots, this game will definitely have a playoff feel to it.
The Bengals have announced that corner-back Leon Hall will be inactive and may end up on the injured reserve after tearing his Achilles tendon last week. That loss will be a big blow to this secondary, but they have guys on this team who can step up and finish off the season strong.
Running back Rex Burkhead, corner-back Chris Lewis-Harris, defensive tackle Devon Still, offensive guard/center Trevor Robinson, offensive tackle Tanner Hawkinson and wide receiver Ryan Whalen will all be inactive today against the Jets.
Enjoy the game Bengals/Jets fans!
