Cincinnati Bengals vs. Washington Football Team Recap NOV 22TH 2020

Rookie quarterback Ryan Finley went 20 of 26 for 150 yards and two touchdowns, leading the visiting Cincinnati Bengals past the Washington Redskins 23-13 on Thursday night.

Finley, a fourth-round pick, threw touchdowns of 5 yards to second-round rookie tight end Drew Sample and 3 yards to 2018 seventh-round pick Auden Tate.

Cincinnati scored 17 unanswered points in the second half, capped by a 75-yard punt return from Alex Erickson in the fourth quarter.

Finley's performance came while fellow rookie signal-caller Dwayne Haskins, a first-rounder, impressed for Washington. Haskins went 7 of 14 for 114 yards and a touchdown, a gorgeous 55-yarder to Robert Davis late in the second quarter.

Case Keenum started for the Redskins and finished 3 of 7 for 52 yards. Bengals starter Andy Dalton went 5 of 9 for 36 yards with an interception, which was tipped by Daron Payne at the line and then caught and returned 96 yards for a touchdown by Montae Nicholson.

The top two picks in the 2020 NFL Draft will face off for the first time Sunday when quarterback Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Washington Football Team and defensive end Chase Young in Landover, Md.

 

Washington coach Ron Rivera got to meet both players leading up to the draft and said both reminded him of another top pick from years ago -- Cam Newton.

 

"You just feel it with (Burrow). He and Chase (Young) both have a certain charisma you look for in players," Rivera said. "Both reminded me of Cam. ...Those two are the closest thing I've seen to Cam Newton in that regard."

 

That charisma has yet to translate into winning games in the NFL, however. The Bengals (2-6-1) have yet to win on the road (0-4-1) this season and are out of the running in the stacked AFC North. Washington (2-7) has lost two consecutive games and seven of its last eight but remains in contention in the weak NFC East.

 

"They're all must wins as far as I'm concerned," Rivera said.

 

Young, the No. 2 pick out of Ohio State, has been a plug-and-play option on the defensive line when healthy. He's logged 21 tackles and 3.5 sacks in eight games, all starts.

 

Burrow, selected No. 1 out of LSU, has thrown for 2,485 yards with 12 touchdowns and five interceptions, and earned praise from across the league for his poise, accuracy and the speed with which he's adapted to the pro game. But he's coming off a subpar game in an ugly 36-10 road loss at undefeated Pittsburgh last week when he threw for just 213 yards and the Bengals were 0-for-13 on third down.

 

Burrow, just 5 of 15 passing in the second half after tweaking his ankle late in the first, brushed off any injury concerns.

 

"I'm good to go," he said Wednesday.

 

Washington counters with 36-year-old Alex Smith, who's 13 years older than his counterpart. Smith was brilliant in his first start this season in last week's 30-27 loss to the Detroit Lions. Smith passed for a career-high 390 yards and a career-best 38 completions.

 

Smith rallied Washington back from a 21-point deficit only to see the Lions win it with a late field goal.

 

"There was a lot to build off of and get better at," Smith said. "It's been the most comfortable I've felt. It's been a steady progression all the way forward."

 

Smith's comeback from a gruesome leg injury two years ago is complete, and he's proved to be Washington's best answer at quarterback.

 

"Alex Smith, he's just won everywhere he's been," Cincinnati coach Zac Taylor said.

 

Both teams will be dealing with fallout from COVID-19 concerns. Washington announced Monday there will be no fans after allowing more than 3,000 in for the previous home game. The franchise had its first positive test for a player this week with defensive tackle Matt Ioannidis.

 

The Bengals played at Pittsburgh without four assistant coaches because of contact tracing. Cincinnati took cornerback Trae Waynes off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday but added practice squad players defensive end Freedom Akinmoladun and safety Trayvon Henderson to the same list.

 

"It's next man up for everybody, that includes coaches," Taylor said.

 

Cincinnati is still awaiting the return of running back Joe Mixon, the team's leading rusher, who has missed three straight games with a foot injury. Mixon did not participate in practice on Wednesday and is considered day-to-day.

 

"We'll see as the week goes," Taylor said.

 

The Bengals received encouraging news as CBs LeShaun Sims (concussion) and Mackenzie Alexander (concussion), and offensive linemen Bobby Hart (knee) and Jonah Williams (stinger) both returned in a limited capacity.

 

Washington had seven players not participate on Wednesday, including kicker Dustin Hopkins (groin), offensive linemen Geron Christian (knee) and Cornelius Lucas (ankle), safety Deshazor Everett (ankle), wide receiver Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), defensive end Ryan Anderson (knee) and linebacker Jared Norris (hamstring).

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.
