Defensively if it was any Indication Monday Night of what the Broncos are trying to do the Bengals will have their work cut out. Its not even about Ends Dumervil and Miller but the Backers in their Entirety have been playing the Best for a awhile on Sunday. Add a Secondary whose Weakest Links are the Safeties and they are starting to play to the Level of the Corners...AJ Green Good Luck. Broncos CB Tracy Porter has been rules out for Sunday's game in Cincy.
BENGALS to Win: They must get back to the Basics and QB Andy Dalton is starting to get the Sophomore Sunday Blues. They have to find another WR besides Hawkins and Green to move the Chains and make Plays down field. RB Green-Ellis has played above average but below what of what the Bengals thought they were getting. 2nd RB Bernard Scott is on IR and that was a huge Blow to the Bengals Run Game. Bengals O-Coordinator Jay Gruden must attack the broncos D starting with the Run and if the Bengals can't Run here comes Dumervil, and Von Miller among others trying to get in on the Feast.
Defensively of late the Bengals haven't been able to Stop the Run or the Pass. Now they come off the Bye Week and they face a Peyton Manning that looks like he is starting to run on all Cylinders. For Starters they need to take away McGahee in the Run Game and Manning has been reluctant to throw Really Deep but the Seam Patterns are his Bread and Butter. He will use TEs as well as his WRs. Thomas and Decker are a Load and Bengal CBs Hall and Clements will have to rely on Solid Safety Help and Help after the Grab. This is not the Team the Bengals need to see trying put a 3 Game Skid to bed.
Winner: BRONCOS 27-17...they can't stop the Run or Pass and their Inability to get someone else the Pigskin on Offense besides WR Green is beyond me.
