The Bengals and Eagles don’t play each other that often. The last time these two teams faced off was in 2016. A lot has changed for the Bengals in that time. The most notable is Joe Burrow starting at quarterback instead of Andy Dalton.
The rookie quarterback is coming off a great game where he threw three touchdowns, but troubles in the redzone saw the Bengals falling short on Thursday Night Football. Still, it was a very nice step in the right direction.
The Eagles appear to be on the other end of the quarterback spectrum. They have Carson Wentz going into his fifth year in the NFL after trading a king’s ransom for the right to take him. He has just not been that guy this year. He already has four interceptions after only having seven last season, and his turnovers have played a huge part in each of the team’s losses so far.
One of these teams will escape Week 3 with their first victory in 2020. The key for the Bengals will be whether Burrow and his receivers can finally hit on some big play down the field. For the Eagles, it may be if they can keep Wentz from shooting the team in the foot long enough to secure the win, which shouldn’t be too hard if the ride Miles Sanders to victory. Of course, Burrow has shown he still has plenty of magic left up his sleeve as well. It should be interesting to see how this one plays out.
