Key Draft Picks:
There's no question that the Bengals are in better shape than the Bills, but that hasn't stopped the Bills from knocking the Bengals around over the last few years. Cincinnati has had trouble with Buffalo. Their win against the Bills at home in 2011 was the first win over Buffalo since 1989. They had lost 10 straight games to that point.
The last time the Bengals won in Buffalo was 1985. While on paper the Bengals are better, they will need to treat the Bills as if they're playing the best team in the NFL to get out of Ralph Wilson Stadium with a win. Having said that, this is the first game of a stretch of potentially easier games that should give the Bengals a break before their schedule toughens up again later in the year.
