NY Jets @ Cincy

The Bengals return home after a wild and whacky 41-39 shootout loss in Kansas City, where special teams blunders, pick sixes, and overall poor play was the theme of the day for the Bengals.  Getting to return home after an opening game 1 defeat against a team who won, is always an angle to look at.  Another Angle is the fact the Jets, who have settled in at QB with Geno Smith, managed just 235 yards of offense against the Colts in a 13-10 ho-hum win, and this is their first road trip in this early preseason. 

As I look to camp reports at cincyjungle.com, an excellent site for team info with comprehensive coverage of daily team reports, the offensive line is much healthier and will see some time in this game as well as they were very thin in their game at KC in that area due to injury issues.  The depth of the running game that Cincy has dwarfs that of the Jets, and I also expect the special teams and second team offense to be vastly sharper than they were in Kansas City last week.  The Jets are not a deep team at skill positions, and not all that talented on offense either in my opinion, and I doubt QB Smith sniffs the field after the first quarter here and Mike Vick will do his thing, which is past its prime I might add.  At days end the Bengals potential for scoring is higher and the motivation to win the home opener in the preseason after a loss will also be in play after a mistake filled debacle at Kansas City last week.
