2. NFL Teams That Should Be On Upset Alert In Week 6 – Cincinnati Bengals
Sunday’s game was a heartbreaker for the Bengals, who nearly rallied for a stunning victory after trailing Baltimore all game before Justin Tucker beat them with a field goal at the gun. Cincinnati did acquit itself very well against its toughest competition in the AFC North but they are still just 2-3 on the year.
The offensive line is still a work in progress for Cincinnati, which has seen Joe Burrow get sacked 18 times in five games, and that could be an issue again this week. The Bengals are on the road again as they head to one of the NFL’s toughest road environments, the Superdome, to take on the New Orleans Saints.
Oddsmakers have set the Bengals as just two-point favorites in New Orleans against a talented Saints team that has underachieved in the early portion of the season. New Orleans has had to fight tooth and nail to pick up their wins, including a comeback victory against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 5.
Former Bengal Andy Dalton is under center for the Saints with Jameis Winston battling injuries and he would love to stick it to his former team by dealing them a fourth loss. The New Orleans defense is also capable of harassing Burrow throughout the day, making this a very dangerous spot for the reigning AFC Champions.
