hopefully special teams comes to play they were a big reason we lost to the steelers. Kick returners shouldnt average almost 35yards and 25 for a punt returner is crazy
A nice defining win would be awesome before the bye ..obviously...but everyone knows how we get to 6-2 then wind up 6-5 .. 7-3 sounds amazing
Not that it matters but just saw on NFL network . Bengals lead series 5-3,...figured I'd share
Matchup I'd like to see the Giants try to create is having Burfict covering Bennet or Beckum.. They'll be open every time.. Let em cheat and hit em long..
Interesting bit of history.
Bengals and Giants have played 8 times.
Bengals lead the series 5-3.
The road team has never won.
....that said, all that matters is the teams on the field Sunday and this is a Giants team that's pretty damn good at adjustments. They lose to Dallas, then they put up 41 on the Bucs. They lose to Philly, they put up 41 on the Browns. Now they've lost to PIT (and not by much on a day when they were awful), so I gotta believe they make the right changes and are really fired up for this.
Then Factor in that the Giants are like +14 in turnovers and I think the Bengals are -5. Difference of 19 is pretty substantial.
I'm always positive off a loss and negative going into a game, always give credit to opponents, but I gotta believe the Giants take care of business before the bye....
....or they continue to struggle on offense and get lazy with the bye coming up and we have to wait a couple weeks for them to turn it around with bye week healing and adjustments, meanwhile Dallas wins easy games against Philly and Cleveland and pulls within 1 game in the division. But I hope not.
