The New Orleans Saints (4-5) will host the Cincinnati Bengals (5-3-1) this Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Both teams are coming off losses. The Bengals posted one of their worst performances of the season last Thursday against the Cleveland Browns.
Cincinnati Bengals stunned by how far defense has fallen
Linebacker Rey Maualuga knew the Bengals' defense had slipped against the run this season. He didn't realize it was in such a free-fall. "I don't even know where we're at," he said, guessing at their league ranking. "Twenty-something?"
Giovani Bernard, Vontaze Burfict injuries: Cincinnati Bengals players likely out Sunday - NFL - SI.com

Cincinnati Bengals hope Rey Maualuga's addition can help stop run - ESPN
Rey Maualuga hates talking about himself. He especially dislikes uttering his own name if it happens to be used in the same breath as any variation of the word "savior."
Two numbers have haunted Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton this week: 2.0 (as in his passer rating last Thursday versus the Browns) and 4.3 (as in his QBR versus the Browns).
Neither has practiced, although it appears Bernard could possibly be a week away from returning to the offense after now missing three straight games with multiple injuries. All this week, Bernard has worked out off to the side, going through conditioning drills while the rest of the team practices. Burfict hasn't quite made it to that point after being out the past three weeks following arthroscopic knee surgery.
Once again, the Cincinnati Bengals find themselves at a Week 11 crossroads. For the second time in as many seasons, their season could hinge on whatever happens in a game that is seven weeks shy of the end of the regular season. Could a win Sunday provide a spark of momentum like it did a year ago? Or might a loss send them down a slippery slope that could cause them to miss the playoffs for the first time in four seasons?
Not everyone likes the NFL's emphasis on cracking down on hits on defenseless players. But like it or not, NFL players are changing the way they play to avoid getting fined and flagged.
