With a win over the Seattle Seahawks last week, the Cincinnati Bengals have gotten off to their best start to a season in over a decade. Not only are the Bengals an impressive 5-0 SU, they are also a near perfect 4-0-1 ATS this season. Next up for Cincy is a trip to Buffalo to take on the inconsistent Bills on Sunday.
- The Bills are 10-2 SU and ATS in their last 12 games against the Bengals.
- The Bengals are 2-6 SU in their eight games before the bye on the road since 1993.
- Bills QB EJ Manuel is expected to start in place of the injured Tyrod Taylor (sprained MCL).
Anyone who doubted quarterback Andy Dalton before this season has certainly changed their tune, as the Bengals signal caller leads the NFL in passing yards and QB rating. Dalton has had help from an explosive group of receivers, with each of the Bengals top four pass catchers averaging 13.0 yards per reception or more.
The Bills are coming off what can only be described as the ugliest win of Week 5. Buffalo won a 14-13 snoozefest against the Tennessee Titans in a game where quarterback Tyrod Taylor completed 10 passes for 109 yards.
