What if I told you the Cincinnati Bengals (2-1) are winning their games not through the arm of Joe Burrow, but through the strength of their Top 10 defense? It’s true, the Bengals rank 28th in passing offense and 8th in overall defense. I’m so impressed with their defensive effort through three weeks that I picked them up in fantasy and will try to capitalize this week on that.

Meanwhile, the Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3) are a comedy of errors. Trevor Lawrence is throwing a lot of interceptions and taking a lot of sacks, but given how bad the offensive line and talent overall is, he’s doing the best he can. You can see the talent and ability there, but he’s basically working with a minor league football team there. I think they win a game eventually, but I don’t think it’ll be this week.

Kickoff is set for Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 6:20 p.m. Mile High time at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio and will air on NFL Network. If you are looking for an online stream elsewhere, fuboTV will be streaming this game.
