I'm worried about the Bengals. Their defense is on a tear right now. 4 sacks in each of the last 4 games and forcing turnovers. They have a tough DL and get pressure up the middle and on the edges. They're Redzone defense has only given up 1 TD on 8 attempts over the last 4 games, they blanked Oakland by not even allowing them in the Redzone and on the flipside they haven't been settling for FGs hardly at all on offense as they've converted on 13 of their last 17 trips.
Going east, early game, losing an hour on the trip and playing against a team that is peaking. Just a tough situation.
If the offense starts slow and the Bengals jump out to a lead and are able to pin their ears back because Dallas has to ditch running the ball, it's gonna be tough. Very tough.
The recent defensive performances for Dallas have been pretty bad. If they don't pick it up the Bengals will score early and rush the passer all out.
