The Bengals were good but the Miami Dolphins were better

The Bengals had a Cinderella season in 2021 making it all the way to the Super Bowl. Naturally, expectations are high for a return trip and they will entertain the top spot in the AFC North throughout the year but this week, they can’t keep it up.

The Dolphins match up well with the Bengals on paper. The Dolphins’ quick defense will keep Ja’Mar Chase in check and pressure from the outside should keep Burrow off his game. Defensively, the Dolphins should be able to hold the Bengals down.

Entering week four, we will have a better idea of what Tua Tagovailoa will be in this system and if he is grasping it, the Dolphins are going to be dangerous. The Bengals lost to the Rams last year and the Dolphins will be running a similar style offensively and that could give the Bengals’ defense some problems.

Like the week before, this game should be more defensive than offensive and it is a “pick-em” type game, at least for now. By the time the game arrives, the Bengals will likely be favored given that it is a home game but if the Dolphins are playing well and continuing to improve, this game should be one they can win.
