The Buffalo Bills will travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals on Sunday Night Football. This should be an emotional game for both teams, as it’s the same venue where the Damar Hamlin injury occurred last season.
The Bengals enter this game with much momentum, coming off a dominant win against the 49ers. Buffalo defeated Tampa Bay in Week 8 on Thursday Night Football, so they had a little extra time to prepare for this contest.

Joe Mixon has come alive in the past few weeks. Consistency needs to improve with Mixon and the offensive line, but the Bengals are leaning into the run game to set up the pass.
Mixon carried the ball 16 times against a legitimate 49ers front seven and totaled 87 yards with one touchdown. This was his second 80+ yard performance in the past three games. As the Bengals' offensive line continues to get healthy, Mixon’s production will only spike.
The number of carries is the biggest thing to look at with Mixon. He has 53 attempts in the past three games, which shows a commitment to the rushing attack.
Burrow has been historically good against the Bills, but the ground game is the best way for Cincinnati to attack. The Cold, Hard Football Facts have successfully predicted the outcome of NFL games and seasons through their proprietary stats.
They rank the Bills 15th in Defensive Rusher Rating and 18th in Defensive Hog Index. The front seven hasn’t performed consistently well this season, and Mixon has the talent to exploit it on Sunday.
Ja’Marr Chase wasn’t getting the ball to begin the season. He was frustrated, but this has changed as of late. Chase is back to being a staple of the offense and terrorizing every defense in his path.
Chase and Burrow have one of the best connections in the NFL. He was targeted 12 times and caught 10 passes on Sunday for 100 yards with a touchdown. He ran multiple routes, and the 49ers had no answer for him in this position.
In the past five games, he has gone over 100 yards three times. One of the performances was a 15-catch night for 192 yards with three touchdowns against the Cardinals. His total is listed at 84.5 yards, which is high, but this game can quickly turn into a shootout.
If the Bills start scoring and the Bengals are forced to throw the ball down the field, Chase will sail over this total.
Stefon Diggs and Ja’Marr Chase are the two receivers to watch in this game. We believe they will build off each other’s momentum. If Chase makes a big play for the Bengals, Diggs will want to do the same for the Titans.
Diggs has been excellent this season and is one of the most consistent receivers in the NFL. He has caught 64 passes for 748 yards with six touchdowns. He has averaged 11.7 yards per reception and has been Josh Allen’s consistent deep threat.
Diggs has posted two moderate receiving games against the Buccaneers and Patriots. However, in the four games before this, he exceeded 100 yards receiving. Diggs can pop off and step up in the most significant moments.
Cincinnati has defended the pass well, but Diggs is a player who can beat the best defenders. With the stakes raised, he is a player we want to trust with our wagers.
