The Bengals (5-2) are off to their best seven-game start since 2015, which was also the last year Cincinnati made the postseason. They will look to move another step closer to that postseason goal when they visit the New York Jets (1-5). Rookie quarterback Zach Wilson (knee) is sidelined for New York, so the Jets will start Mike White under center.

Week 8 NFL picks for Jets vs. Bengals
Before you tune in to Sunday's Bengals vs. Jets game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,700 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 8 of the 2021 season on an incredible 126-85 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Bengals vs. Jets, the model is backing the over (43). Cincinnati's offense is among the NFL's elite, ranking seventh in scoring with a number of individual standouts. QB Joe Burrow ranks fifth in passer rating, RB Joe Mixon ranks third in rushing yards and WR Ja'Marr Chase ranks second in receiving yards.
The Bengals are also peaking as their two-highest scoring games of the season have come in their last two contests. The 41 points that Baltimore allowed last week to Cincinnati is the fifth-most the Ravens have ever allowed in a home game.
Meanwhile, despite all of the Jets' warts, their games have hit the over in each of the last three weeks. They have found some semblance of offense after averaging just 6.7 points over their first three games. In fact, New York is averaging 20 points per game in their last three outings. With Cincinnati's offense rolling and the Jets doing just enough, the model projects 46 total points, helping the over cash in well over 50 percent of simulations.
