This weeks Thursday Night Football is pitting the Eagles and the Bengals. The Bengals loss last week hurt their chances of making the playoffs tremendously.
The Bengals fell to 7-6 and the Eagles improved to 4-9. The Eagles season has been a huge disappointment this year. They beat the Tampa Bay Bucs last week playing spoiler to the Bucs playoff hopes. The Eagles have been hit hard by the injury bug this year with 3 offensive starters already ruled out and 2 defensive starters ruled out of this gamevwith possibly more to follow. I would be completely shocked if the Bengals did not come out and make a statement against this decimated team. I think Andy Dalton will come out and have a big game and throw for 350 yards and 2 tds. The law firm (BenJarvis Green-Ellis) should rush for 125 and 1 td. On the other hand Bryce Brown has had two spectacular in 2 of his 3 starts this year. I would like to see if those two games were a blip or a trend. I don’t think it is a trend because even though he had good yardage games he has had a fumbling problem in those games as well.
I believe the Bengals will come out and win this game 27-13 and throw themselves back into the playoff hunt.
