Bengals looking to get back in the win column vs Falcons


The Falcons finally get back on the field after answering questions all week about the hit that their CB, Dunta Robinson, put on Eagles WR DeSean Jackson Sunday in the teams 31-17 loss to the Eagles.

This week they are at home to host a struggling Bengals team that is desperate to get back in the win column after a bye week and a 2-3 record that wasn’t expected by the club as they kicked off 2010.

Matt Ryan and the Falcons will look to get back to the basics, as they were shut down by the Eagles, gaining a season-low 293 yards in their loss in Philly. Look for a steady dose of Michael Turner, and this could be the week Michael Jenkins finally get some chances to catch the ball after missing the early part of the year with injury.

Atlanta’s D is also coming off a poor outing, as they gave up a season-high 474 yards and allowing three touchdowns of more than 30 yards. They will look to lay the hammer on Carson Palmer and a Bengals offense that has had issues scoring points all season.

The Bengals are not very good on the road, losing six of seven dating to last season, the lone victory coming in Week 3 against winless Carolina.

They also are getting no pressure on the QB, as they have six sacks, tied for second fewest in the league, and need to find a way to get to Ryan who has won his last 11 regular season games at home.

The Falcons should have success throwing and running on the Bengals D, while Palmer is going to need to avoid the rush and try to keep Ryan and the Falcons off the field. That won’t be easy.

The Bengals are in a must win this week, as a 2-4 start in a tough AFC North and they can kiss a repeat good-bye. The Falcons are looking to rebound after a bad loss to the Eagles, and picking on a Bengals team that has had offensive issues all season is just the ticket. The physical style of the Falcons will send Cincy to their fourth loss in six games. Atlanta 30 Cincinnati 17

    I just figured out what is going on here with all of this talk about head shots.
    The NFL doesn’t care about these head shots, they are doing all of this to keep the Brett Favre affair off of ESPN.
    Notice how no big stories have been run about Favre’s meeting with NFL security?
    This is typical of scummy lawyer tactics, Goodell is a lawyer, right?
    It’s time to fire that slimeball before he completely ruins the game of football.

    The Bung-holes will lose this week, so much for winning the AFC North last year.
    I for one am glad that they stink again this year, any team that would include O-So-Stink-O, T.O. (Totally Over-rated), and Pac-man Jones on their roster deserves to lose.
    I don’t hear any Bung-holes boasting about going 6-0 in the division last year now.

    Why is this Matt Loede guy always reporting on Bengals Gab about the Bengals when he is CLEARLY such a huge HATER on them. He has YET to write ONE article that isn’t completely bias to the negatives of the team, or holes that they have. EVERY team in the league has positive/negatives, and pros/cons to their franchise, but whenever this loser gets on here everything is spun as though what the Bengals do is useless and they are a terrible team. Hey guy, if you’re going to get on here and simply point out faults, please let us into your world so that we can point out all the faults of whatever NFL team you enjoy. Otherwise maybe you could become an ACTUAL journalist and talk about BOTH sides of the story when it comes to this team.

    Sorry, Chris, I can’t post everything out here 🙁
