The Cardinals defense allows 240.6 yds passing and 117.4 yds rushing per game, both of which are much more than the Bengals average. If we eliminate the turnovers, we should be able to generate more offense than our 22 pts/game average. The Cardinals offense generates 218.1 yds passing and 102.5 yds rushing per game. That is slightly more passing yds than our defense allows (214.4) but more rushing yards (99.6). Statistically this game is a win, but if we play down to our opponent again like we did against the Rams or a T.J. Yates-led Texans team, I'm not so sure.
As for the Ravens, both their offenese and defense have a more than 30yd disadvantages difference as compared to the Bengals. Although we outgunned them in Baltimore, we lost the turnover battle -2 despite Ray Lewis on the sidelines. If there is ever the need for homefield advantage and the win-to-get-in pressure of the playoffs, we need the boost!
On paper we should finish the last two games 1-1 but I can see this team actually getting two wins if we stop shooting ourselves in the foot. I'll let someone else analyze the Jets, since I don't really care...
