Jacksonville at Cincinnati
Cincy is playing well, so this game, on a Thursday against an inferior opponent, is just the sort of game you’d expect them to lose. However, as I said last week when I picked them to “beat their most-hated rival,” (shout-out to my buddy Vince, who got to see his team beat the “Stealers” in-person) this was a turning point for the team and for Joe Burrow. They might not be world-beaters yet, but Cincy should be able to handle Jacksonville. Trevor Lawrence has shown that he has promise, but he’s green, and the rest of the Jags’ roster is talent-poor. Cincy’s roster is full of budding young talent, especially on offense. At this early point in their respective careers, Burrow is the bigger cat.
