The Cincinnati Bengals will return home to take on the Carolina Panthers at Paycor Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. The game is scheduled for Sunday kickoff at 1 p.m. ET. DraftKings Sportsbook has the Bengals as a 7.5-point favorite with a point total of 42.5.
Carolina (2-6) has showed a lot more as a football team since the departure of Matt Rhule and other malcontents like wide receiver Robbie Anderson. The Panthers pulled off a shocking 21-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers two weeks ago and came just short of a great rally against the NFC South-leading Atlanta Falcons in a 37-34 loss. Quarterback P.J. Walker has been a nice development and could have a case to keep the starting job when Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold return.
Cincinnati (4-4) received bad news during the week of their Monday night game against the Cleveland Browns. Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase missed his first and what could be several games with a hip injury and the Bengals offense was off key all night in a 32-13 loss to the Browns. Despite the loss the Bengals are within arm’s length of the division-leading Baltimore Ravens, only one game back.
