Cincinnati vs New Orleans Game Preview
Why Cincinnati Will Win
It doesn’t make any sense.
The five turnovers in the opener were the reason for the loss to Pittsburgh, but that got cleaned up – the Bengals don’t give it away enough to matter.

Burrow and the O will get up quickly, and the other side of the ball will take care of things from there.
