Cincinnati Bengals: Week 3 (Home)
Forget all of the struggles surrounding the Cincinnati Bengals last season in which they won just two games during Zac Taylor’s first season as head coach since this game has potential upset written all over it for the Eagles.
After months of speculation, the Bengals made the easy decision to go with LSU star quarterback Joe Burrow with the top overall pick with the hope of the quarterback helping this offense make a major leap to help Cincinnati become legitimate once again in the AFC.
Of course, this will be easier said than done since early signs point to the Bengals still going through a year of rebuilding, but also there is always the chance of Burrow playing better as a rookie than originally expected.
Keep in mind this is a quarterback who finished with a record-breaking season in 2019 with the Tigers after completing 60 touchdown passes, and even though the weapons he has to work with will be completely different, the potential is still there.
Between A.J Green expected to be back at full strength along with Cincinnati bringing on another weapon for Burrow to work with in Tee Higgins, the Eagles better be cautious over this contest, and avoid taking a light approach.
