Broncos @ Bengals

Recommended Posts



The Bengals have not defeated the Broncos in back-to-back games since 1975-76 -- the Bengals beat the Broncos last season, 20-17. Since 1977, Denver is 17-5 versus Cincinnati for a .733 win percentage, second-highest (min. 20 games) by a team against any opponent over that span (Steelers vs. Colts; 16-4, .800).

The Bengals have given up at least 34 points in four of their last five games. They are allowing 31.5 points per game and 439.6 yards per game this season. Only five teams have allowed more than 30 points per game and 400 yards per game over a full season.

The Broncos scored 14 unanswered points to beat the Steelers, 24-17, in Week 12. It was the second straight week they won despite trailing in the second half. Denver has not allowed any of its last five opponents to rush for 100 yards or a touchdown, tied for the longest such streak in team history.

Joe Mixon had 155 yards from scrimmage (89 rushing and 66 receiving) in last week's loss to the Browns, pushing his season average to 101.8 scrimmage yards per game. Only two players in Bengals history have finished a season with a higher average - James Brooks in 1986 (110.8) and Cedric Benson in 2009 (104.8).

Emmanuel Sanders has 4975 receiving yards in 70 career games with the Broncos. The only two players in Broncos history to reach 5000 receiving yards with the team in fewer games are Lionel Taylor (63 games) and Demaryius Thomas (67 games).

The Bengals have only fumbled the ball six times this season, losing possession on just two. Both of those numbers are the lowest in the NFL. The Broncos are tied with Cincinnati with two fumbles lost, and their eight total fumbles are the second fewest in the league.

So we're hot, the Bengals are cold and starting Jeff Driskel, and we have a great record against them historically. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Bengals are gonna outscore us by 20...
