Bengals vs. Chiefs Week 7 game flexed to Sunday Night Football
The Cincinnati Bengals will get an extra primetime game this year after originally only having a Thursday Night Football game on their schedule.On Tuesday Youth Carlos Dunlap Jersey , it was revealed that the Bengals’ Week 7 matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs will be flexed into Sunday Night Football. As of now, this will be just the second primetime game the Bengals will play in this year. The Bengals have confirmed the news.The Chiefs have stormed out of the gate en route to a 5-0 record and have made a strong case that they’re the NFL’s best team. They’ll get a big test this week when they face the New England Patriots in Foxborough before returning home to host the Bengals in Week 7.The Bengals host the Pittsburgh Steelers this week. If they can hold serve at home this week and then beat the Chiefs next week, the Bengals will lead the AFC record-wise when Week 7 ends. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. As of now, the Bengals are 4-1, the Chiefs are 5-0 and the next two weeks will be big tests for Cincinnati.Who would have thought we could ever say that after the Bengals went a combined 13-18-1 over the last two seasons? Unfortunately, the Bengals are 0-10 on Sunday Night Football since 2006, that includes playoff games on NBC.Zero and ten. Hey, if you’re going to break a streak , you might as well do it against arguably the best team in the AFC and maybe NFL.Ravens open as favorite over Bengals in Week 2 The Bengals are coming off an impressive road win over the Colts to begin the 2018 season.However, the Ravens were arguably the most impressive of any NFL team in the first week of action. They absolutely demolished the Bills en route to a 47-3 win, which frankly was one of the biggest beatdowns the NFL has seen in recent memory.This isn’t Alabama vs. the little sisters of the poor. The league is created in a way that promotes parity and competitive games when even the best teams face the worst teams.So when an NFL team beats another by 44 points, oddsmakers take notice, and they currently have Baltimore as a 1.5-point favorite over Cincinnati in Week 2. Now, it has to be pointed out that the Bengals have won seven of the last nine meetings, and one of those losses was with A.J. Green out of the lineup. The other was with Ken Zampese still calling the offense, which is arguably worse than not having Green.The Bengals also went into Baltimore and knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs last season. On one hand, that gives you more confidence the Bengals can take care of business at home. On the other hand Kevin Huber Jersey , the revenge factor is very real, and the Ravens will be hell-bent on getting theirs on Thursday Night Football.Then again, you could argue the Bengals want some measure of revenge themselves for the 20-0 home embarrassment they suffered to Baltimore in Week 1 last season. The Bengals take pride in defending their home turf, and they’ll be ready to ensure a repeat of 2017 doesn’t happen in 2018.All told, I would give the Bengals an edge, but I’d only favor them by 1-1.5 points. Don’t be surprised if the line moves a point or two by Thursday to make this a pick ‘em. But if history has told us anything, don’t pick Baltimore against a healthy Green and a competent offensive coordinator.
