What you need to know about the Bengals

The contest between the Bengals and the Cleveland Browns this past Monday was not particularly close, with Cincinnati falling 32-13. Cincinnati was down 25-0 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. No one had a standout game offensively for Cincinnati, but they got scores from WR Tyler Boyd, and WR Tee Higgins. Burrow ended up with a passer rating of 96.4.

The Bengals struggled in their first game without dynamic wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who is out 4-6 weeks with a hip injury. Cincinnati’s offensive line has battled inconsistencies dating back to last season, and those issues became apparent once again on Monday night. Cincinnati was held to only 36 rushing yards and Burrow was sacked five times. The Bengals will have to be vastly improved on the line of scrimmage to cover the spread this week against Carolina.

What you need to know about the Panthers

Carolina fought into overtime against the Atlanta Falcons this past Sunday but ultimately fell 37-34. The Panthers had a chance to potentially win the game in regulation, but an unsportsmanlike penalty on wide receiver DJ Moore made Carolina’s go-ahead PAT attempt 15 yards more difficult, and kicker Eddy Pineiro ultimately missed the kick. RB D’Onta Foreman put forth a good effort for the losing side as he rushed for three TDs and 118 yards on 26 carries.

Walker is making his third consecutive start for Carolina with Baker Mayfield listed as a healthy scratch. Walker, a former XFL star, turned in an impressive performance against the Falcons, completing 19 of 36 passes for 317 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He added 20 yards on the ground as well.
