The Bengals go further beneath .500 after losing to the Titans 24-20 to put them 3-6. The team is averaging 16.6 points and 292.8 yards per game on the offence while the defence is holding foes to 20.2 points and 338.2 yards per game. Denver’s losing streak continues with 5 straight losses thanks to the Patriots last Sunday beating them 41-16 and putting them 3-6. The team is averaging 18.4 points and 348.1 yards per game on the offence while the defence is allowing 26.6 points and 305.3 yards per game.
Our Free NFL Pick: The Broncos’ limitations on the offence has been seriously hurting them since the middle of the season which put them on for a 5-game losing streak. The Bengals, on the other hand, have had issues on offence as well with failing to keep scoring drives going and while their defence has been making efforts to stop the offence, Andy Dalton is still quite limited in what he can do as a QB. I daresay this would be the point now where the Broncos can end their losing streak and with the small spread, cover.
