Redskins vs.Bengals preview:
Despite losing 20-17 on a last-second touchdown pass, the Redskins still looked pretty good last Sunday against the Lions. Kirk Cousins had his best game of the season, going 30-of-39 for 301 yards and a touchdown, while running in for the other. Unfortunately Josh Norman suffered a concussion in that game and has been ruled out for this week, but tight end Jordan Reed is scheduled to return which will provide a massive offensive boost.
The Bengals got a much needed 31-17 win over the Browns on Sunday after losing two in a row to the Cowboys and the Patriots. Andy Dalton looked back in form, with a solid 19-of-28 passing for 308 yards and two touchdowns. While, yeah, it was the Browns, it might be enough to jumpstart the Cincinnati offense that has looked so inconsistent this year.
The Bengals have won the last three match-ups between the two teams.
Redskins vs. Bengals prediction:
Even with Josh Norman out, the Redskins win this game. A.J. Green will probably lose his mind on the Washington secondary, but I'm not sure it will be enough to beat the Redskins. With the Redskins getting Jordan Reed back, I'm expecting them to put up some serious points, and the Bengals offense has struggled all year (aside from Green).
