Bills vs. Bengals preview:

Buffalo is off to a very streaky season. After losing its first two games, Buffalo rattled off four straight very impressive wins. However, in true Bills fashion, Buffalo has lost three straight games to Miami, New England, and Seattle. The Bills should have won the game against the Seahawks, but let mistakes take the game away from them. They had an extra week to think about their mistakes, and need to rebound quickly to make it back into the playoff discussion.

The last three games for the Bengals are about as mixed as you can find in the NFL. Cincinnati defeated the Browns, then tied with the Washington Redskins, and followed that tie up with a loss to the Giants on Monday Night Football. Andy Dalton looked great on the first drive of the Bengals game against the Giants, accounting for 86 yards and a touchdown. Yet he struggled the rest of the game, and Cincinnati's offense disappeared.

The Bills and Bengals have played each other 29 times, with the Bills holding a 15-12 advantage in the regular season. The Bengals hold a 2-0 edge in the playoffs.

Bills vs. Bengals prediction:

After getting the week off, Buffalo should be fresh and healthy. LeSean McCoy leads a potent Bills rush attack which will find success against the Bengals tired defense.
