Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon celebrates touchdown run with teammates vs. Atlanta Falcons

The Cincinnati Bengals will return home to face the Carolina Panthers after losing Monday night to the Cleveland Browns by a score of 32-13. The Bengals are 4-4, and the Panthers are 2-6 on the season.

Cincinnati had a game to forget in their primetime game against the Browns where they were shut out until the fourth quarter. At that point, there was not enough time left on the clock for the Bengals to make the comeback. 

The Bengals were both out-rushed and out-passed in a game that felt one-sided for most of the game.

The Panthers are coming off of their own heartbreaking loss to the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday by a score of 37-34 that was decided in overtime. 

The Panthers’ DJ Moore caught a touchdown pass in the final minute of the game to tie the score, but his inability to keep his cool with his celebration after scoring the touchdown cost the Panthers a penalty that would make the extra point kick too far for Eddy Pineiro to convert to send it to overtime.

Let’s look ahead at this matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Carolina Panthers on Sunday afternoon.

Odds

The Bengals are 7.5-point favorites at home against the Panthers. At that spread, the Bengals have odds of (-115). 

The over/under for the game is set at 42.5. This will be a hard game to call as the Bengals seem to be the better team at home, but with the way they played on Monday night, there are doubts on how talented this team really is.

Keys To The Game

For the Bengals, the key will be their offensive line. Cincinnati has arguably one of the top 10 quarterbacks in the league who would be in the top three if he was given more time. 

The offensive line has struggled to give Burrow the time to make a play which has hindered their offense greatly. If the Bengals can win the battle in the trenches, then they will have no issue winning this game.

For the Panthers, interim head coach Steve Wilks has made it clear that he is sticking with PJ Walker over Baker Mayfield for the near future. 

That means that Walker is the main key for the Panthers, along with running back D’Onta Foreman, who rushed for three touchdowns against the Falcons. If the Panthers can find a rhythm on offense, they can put the pressure on the Bengals in this game.

Expected Outcome

The Bengals have the opportunity to win this game and go into the bye week greater than .500. If not, they are looking at an uphill battle. I like the Bengals to win and cover in this one because they have more to play for than the Panthers, who are not expected to be in the playoff conversation this year.
