-6 -112
43o -110



The Cincinnati Bengals have started their season with an 0-2 record. Although it’s an unfortunate start, people shouldn’t be too quick to write them off. The Bengals have one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in Joe Burrow under center. As long as they have him, they have a chance to win big. This week, they have a favorable match-up against the New York Jets.

The Jets have started the season with a 1-1 record, a fair start for them. Last week, they earned a 31-30 victory over the Browns after a game-winning drive. The team showed a lot of resilience last week and they’ll need to do it again this week. They’re facing Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase, one of the best duos in the league. Can the Jets pull off a huge upset with a win here?

Bengals vs. Jets Preview for Week 3

The Cincinnati Bengals have a lot riding on this game, as they head into week 3. The main problem for the Bengals has been a lack of protection for Joe Burrow. This is something that was addressed by the offensive line of the Bengals at the end of week 2.

Last week, the Bengals lost 20-17 to the Dallas Cowboys, a disappointing loss. Joe Burrow had a much cleaner game than his week 1 outing, however. Burrow went 24/36 with 199 passing yards and a touchdown. Although it isn’t a great performance, it’s better than how he started.

By the end of the first half last week, the Bengals were down 17-3. It says something that they were able to rally back and tie the game with 3:45 remaining. Their defense, however, was unable to stop the Cowboys from kicking a 50-yard field goal.

The New York Jets earned a 31-30 impressive victory over the Cleveland Browns. Although Cleveland put up over 400 yards, the Jets were able to come away with a win. The win over the Browns is also impressive since they were on the road. In week 3, they return back home.

QB Joe Flacco played an incredible game against the Browns last week. He went 26/44 with 307 passing yards and four touchdowns. Whether he’ll be able to do that against the Bengals defense is yet to be seen. Still, we have to commend him on an incredible week 2 outing.

The key to the Jets winning this game in our opinion is establishing the run. If they can keep Joe Burrow off of the field, they’ll likely come away with a win here. It’s going to be tough considering their offense averages only 88 yards on the ground each game. Still, that’s the best way to win.

Bengals vs. Jets Picks

With one of the worst rushing offenses in the league, the Jets are in a tough spot. They can’t keep Burrow and the Bengals offense off of the field for long. If this turns into a shootout, the Bengals are more than equipped to put up a lot of points. We have yet to see the Bengals team from the 2021-22 season, but we think it shows itself here.

Cincinnati only has to cover 4.5 points, which shouldn’t be much of a problem. Because of this, we’ll take the Bengals on the road. If you’d like a safer bet, you can take Cincinnati on the moneyline at -220.

Final Score: 30-24 (Bengals)


1. The Cincinnati Bengals are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games.

2. The total has gone OVER in 11 of the New York Jets' last 16 games.

3. The New York Jets are 1-6 in their last seven games at home.

Best Bet: Cincinnati Bengals -4.5 (-115) and Over 44.5 (-110)

Shaq Lawson gave the Jets their first interception of the season and Mike White outdueled Joe Burrow as New York rallied late to pull a 34-31 upset over the visiting Cincinnati Bengals in East Rutherford, N.J.

Lawson deflected a screen pass and caught the carom for the interception with 4:32 to go. Two plays later, White hit Tyler Kroft with a 13-yard, go-head touchdown. White caught the 2-point conversion pass from Jamison Crowder on a trick play and the Jets led 34-31 with 3:50 left.

Cincinnati (5-3) punted from its own 40 with 2:19 remaining and never got the ball back after a third-down personal foul penalty extended the Jets' last possession.

The Jets (2-5) snapped a two-game skid and won for the first time in the last four meetings against Cincinnati.

White, in his first NFL start, completed 37 of 45 passes for 405 yards and three touchdowns with two interceptions. Michael Carter added 172 yards from scrimmage on 24 total touches with a touchdown.

Burrow completed 21 of 34 for 259 yards with three touchdowns and one interception. He's the only QB in the NFL to throw multiple touchdowns in every game this season. Joe Mixon scored twice and gained 91 yards from scrimmage on 18 touches. Tee Higgins led all receivers with 97 yards on four catches.

The Bengals snapped a 17-17 tie late in the third quarter when Burrow found Mixon with an 8-yard touchdown pass out of the backfield. Matt Ammendola answered for the Jets with a 24-yard field goal that trimmed the deficit to 24-20 with 12:31 remaining.

Then Lawson picked off Burrow and the Jets quickly followed up with the go-ahead score.

The Jets throttled the Bengals' offense for most of the first half, but still trailed 17-14 at the break. New York opened the game with a sharp scoring drive, and took a 7-0 lead on Carter's 8-yard run. It was the first points in the first quarter all season for the Jets.

But three first-half turnovers led to 10 Cincinnati points and the lost lead. Germaine Pratt's interception set up Mixon's 1-yard TD run to tie it 7-7 on the first play of the second quarter.

The Bengals took a 14-7 lead when Burrow flipped a 2-yard touchdown to rookie WR Ja'Marr Chase. After Vonn Bell's fumble recovery stopped another Jets' drive, Evan McPherson hit a 21-yard field goal for a 17-7 lead with 1:54 left in the half.

New York, which outgained Cincinnati 261-119 in the first half, pulled to within 17-14 with 19 seconds left after White found Braxton Berrios with an 8-yard scoring pass.
