Who's Playing

Cincinnati Bengals (home) vs. New Orleans Saints (away)

Current records: Cincinnati 5-3-1; New Orleans 7-1-1

What to Know

Cincinnati have had a week off and are no doubt ready to get back on the field. They will take on New Orleans at home at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday. Expect the scorekeeper to be kept busy: if their previous games are any indication, Cincinnati and New Orleans will really light up the scoreboard.

After a disappointing ten points in their last contest, Cincinnati made sure to put some points up on the board against Tampa Bay two weeks ago. Cincinnati narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past Tampa Bay 37-34. Joe Mixon, who rushed for 123 yards and 2 touchdowns on 21 carries, was a major factor in Cincinnati's success.

Meanwhile, New Orleans were able to grind out a solid win over the Rams last Sunday, winning 45-35.

Their wins bumped Cincinnati to 5-3-1 and New Orleans to 7-1-1. New Orleans's offensive line will need to gear up for a tough test against a Cincinnati defensive front that amassed six sacks against Tampa Bay, so we'll see if they are up to the task.
