The struggling, but rested Buffalo Bills head to Ohio this Sunday, November 20th to take on the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bills took last week off with a bye and it came at a good time as they’ve lost three straight. They were downed 31-25 by Seattle in their last outing two weeks ago. The Bills are in third place in the AFC East with their 4-5 record. Cincinnati sits in third spot in the AFC North with their 3-5-1 record following their heartbreaking 21-20 loss to the New York Giants last Monday night.

Buffalo Bills – A Closer Look:
The Bills have been a streaky team this year with some winning runs and losing skids. They’ve shown potential at times, but they still enter week 11 with a losing record. They’ve scored 25 points in each of their last three games, all losses, and have conceded 100 against over that stretch. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor had a decent outing against Seattle in week 9 with a touchdown pass and 289 yards in their air by completing 27 of his 38 attempts. He also scored a rushing touchdown as he ran for 48 yards.
The Bills carried the ball 38 times for 162 yards against the tough Seattle defense and have one of the best running teams in the league with an average of 155 yards per game. In fact, they’re ranked second best in the league in that department. Look for the Bills to use their strong ground attack since the Bengals concede an average of 116.8 yards a game. With the Bills running the ball so often they’ve cut their turnovers to just five all season long, which is the lowest in the NFL. Buffalo is just 2-7 in their past nine road trips and 2-5-2 ATS.
Cincinnati Bengals – A Closer Look:
The Bengals lost a tough 21-20 decision to the Giants last Monday night as quarterback Andy Dalton didn’t have one of his best games. Dalton gained just 204 yards in the air by completing 16 of his 29 pass attempts. He also threw for a touchdown and was picked off once. For some reason Dalton struggles under the lights though and is 5-10 while playing night games so far in his career. The team’s running game couldn’t get it going either as Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill teamed up for only 63 yards on their combined 22 carries, which averages out to 2.8 yards each carry. The Cincinnati offense is one of the best in the league, but it doesn’t take advantage of its chances.
The Bengals’ own the league’s fifth-best aerial attack (265.2 yards) and the seventh-best ground assault (115.6 yards), but their 20.8 points per game ranks just 21st in the league. The Bengals struggle against teams with a winning record as they’ve only beaten the Jets, Cleveland Miami this year. The game against the Dolphins came back in week 4. Their losses came against the Giants, New England, Dallas, Denver and Pittsburgh while they tied Washington. The Bengals have beaten the Bills three times in a row and are 2-1 ATS in that period.
