as far as defense goes. I see people in cap leagues jumping the gun, taking favre, cotchery, coles and everyone is picking them to cover the spread. the bengals have been very close in most of there games and had some bad luck.
The bengals have not given up 70 yards to a wr yet, so does anyone think coles or cotchery will get over 70??? Favre has been known to play like crap after a great game.
No. The Bengals have had a tough schedule, but they are 0-5 and without Palmer agian this week. Like everyone, I expect TJ to have a big day. Keller should be a good start.
Against the pass, the Bengals have allowed six scores, but three came last week at Dallas. They have yet to allow a 100-yard receiver and are ranked sixth vs. the pass, giving up just 167.6 pass yards per game on average through five contests. The reason why is because teams are running all over the Bengals -- they're giving up over 170 rush yards per game. All that said, tight ends Jason Witten and Kevin Boss have scored on the Bengals over the last three weeks, and opposing tight ends led their teams in receiving yards in the Bengals' last two losses.
I feel like its going to be a long day for the Bengals defense. Favre throws for 230+, 2 scores and maybe a pick and maybe T.J with 3 catches, 95+ total yards and a score. It's going to be a good game for the Jets offense this week. They are coming off of a bye week and the Jets come prepared to play after the bye week's. Just ask Big Ben and the Steelers last year
You see, with Palmer the Bengals are underrated, giving Dallas and NY a run for their money recently. With Fitzpatrick, who got beat up by Clevland?, they are overrated for an 0-5 team. I was starting the Jets DST this week with Palmer playing, now, this is just too easy...

I don't know, I think with Palmer they would beat up the Lions, which is obviously not saying much but they still have matching records. If the Bengals hadn't played Dallas and NY they could very well be 2-3.
They are about as underrated as the colts are overrated. That team could very easily be winless right now. TJack and Sage gave Indy 2 last ditch FG wins... They are teh suck for those that have watched all their games. They have nice potential to get it together though. After all they still have Manning. He can win games.
