The Cincinnati Bengals play host on Sunday afternoon in Week 5 of the NFL schedule.
The Bengals are looking to put Monday night after getting blown off the field in Pittsburgh using a score of 27-3. That isnt the Troy Polamalu Steelers protection of the past. The Steelers are an device that is defensive these days, therefore the Bengals offense was only putrid.
Reports have indicated that A.J. Green is on transaction block, and after the look of his face on the sideline cringing in the crime, Green does not wish to be there anymore. Who can blame himbut hes kept his mouth closed, at least openly, unlike a particular receiver which the Patriots assaulted and dropped this season.
In addition to A.J. Green, the Cardinals are likely willing to listen to supplies for Larry Fitzgerald. It would not make any sense to pass up this opportunity if either group receives a fair deal for Fitzgerald and Green. The Bengals and Cardinals are going nowhere this season anyway, and theyre contenders Green will have missed a measure and Fitz retired.
Green wont play and continues to nurse a bad ankle. The Bengals continue to take the matter week-by-week, and if reports are accurate, they are going to need to keep him healthy for a transaction. Andy Dalton might need to keep firing away and hope somebody can measure up at the game. He passed just 171 yards and an interception against the Steelers. Auden Tate led the group with 50 yards receiving. He had been packed for 1-yard about 4 receptions, although they tried to get Joe Mixon included.
The Cardinals are still attempting to work this Kliff Kingsbury crime out. To get a half against the Detroit Lions, the offense looked like the device Kingsbury. However, it appeared in spots since then. The air bomb strike that is up-tempo hasnt been as efficient against NFL defenses compared to the Big 12. Kingsbury is sticking with it and not changing but the consequences has to improve. Head below for our complimentary Cardinals vs. Bengals select at Week 5 of the NFL.

Last week kyle Murray had a rough showing from the Seattle Seahawks. This isnt the Legion of Boom defense and Murray had the Seahawks in his backyard in the desert. But all Murray might create was 241 yards and an interception. Hed chip in with 27 rushing yards and a score but he was easily held by the Seahawks in check. Defenses know if they can retain David Johnson from moving off, then the majority of the output is cared for. Hes obviously slowed down from his prime, although fitzgerald can extend the area.
The Cardinals input 5 averaging 18.5 points a game 25th in the NFL. Thats a far cry from what Kingsbury is used to. The Red Raiders scored over 40 points a game. Because the defense was bad, they had to. Patrick Mahomes lose basketball games and would put jaw numbers up. Kingsbury doesnt possess Mahomes in Arizona.
Maybe if he did, this offense would look a ton better. Murray must be better as he continues to develop. He has thrown 4 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. His greatest asset is his ability along with besides 69 yards against the Panthers, defenses have zeroed in on him if he scrambles. While the Bengals do not have an defense they should be able to include an offense whove been out of sorts in this new strategy. The Cardinals have been 32nd in sacks. They are the only group in the NFL who have allowed 20 sacks already. Since they have surrendered 19 sacks, not that the Bengals have been better.
The Cardinals are the Bengals are a total mess. Without A.J. on the field, there really is nothing going on for them. Dalton is not the best quarterback, but he has zero targets without his No. 1 target healthy. No Green has left him look much worse, as hes struggled to use a young receiving core. Dalton has passed 5 touchdowns and 4 interceptions with 61.4percent completions. Neither defense is great, but the total seems way too high with the Bengals and Cardinals offense in the field. I guess 26-20 match or even a 24-21, so the UNDER resembles the play in Cincinnati.
