The Cincinnati Bengals are eyeing a huge matchup out of the bye week on Sunday afternoon.

The Bengals are set to visit the San Francisco 49ers this upcoming weekend.

One of the biggest storylines surrounding the Bengals has been the health of Joe Burrow, but Orlando Brown Jr. has been dealing with a groin injury over the last few weeks.

Brown has only missed one game in his six season career, and he has no intentions of missing another one anytime soon.

“I do (plan to play). I feel great with an extra week of rest. This is just an extra day of rest for me,” Brown said via Geoff Hobson of

This is crucial for the Bengals success with Nick Bosa lined up on the other side of Burrow and the offensive line.

“He’s worth every penny. He and his brother (the Chargers’ Joey) do a really good job of doing the little things right. They do a great job with their hands. Very accurate and very active, which is a rare combination that you don’t see with a lot of guys with that type of athleticism. Very fundamental,” Brown said when discussing Nick Bosa’s game.

Keeping Burrow clean will be key if the Bengals hope to go into San Francisco and hand the 49ers their third straight loss.

The hope is the Bengals have figured out the offensive issues during the bye week, and will be firing on all cylinders this weekend.
