The Bengals look to right the ship as they set out on a three game road trip. The first stop on this national tour is a matchup against the Saints in the always tough to play Superdome. Let's see what Tecmo thinks the Bengals chances are in this game.
The Saints start with the football and other than a Drew Brees scramble, are unable to do much against the Bengals defense.
Andy Dalton starts this game much like he ended the last. An interception gives the Saints the ball back with great field position.
