The Buffalo Bills look to snap out of their ugly losing skid as they head on the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
The Bills look for a spark as they head into Cincinnati in a show down with the Bengals who have also been struggling this season in a game that could have huge playoff implications in the AFC picture for both teams. Buffalo looked like a team on the rise through the quarter mark but have fallen off since and need to get back in the win column in this one, and they will need a big effort from Tyrod Taylor if they’re going to get it done. The Bills do have a very potent defense and will need to keep Andy Dalton and AJ Green in check as the Bengals can become awfully one dimensional in a hurry if they can’t get their number one receiving option open down field.

The Bengals are a disappointing 3-5-1 this season but are still in the race in the AFC North as nobody seems to be able to pull away in what was once the NFL’s most dangerous division and if the Bengals can get a win here they can focus on the chase for a division crown. The Bengals are usually a tough at home as Dalton seems to step up his game when playing in Ohio but they have been off wherever they have played this season and aside from a Thursday night domination of the lowly Dolphins earlier this season they haven’t really put on a strong effort this season.
The Bills are 1-4 in their last five ATS against the AFC and 2-6-1 in their last nine road games ATS while the Bengals are 5-1 ATS in their last six against a team with a losing record and 1-4 in their last five overall ATS. This is going to be a close game and I think the Bills are well worth a look here outright as both teams need a win and the Bills defense might be the best unit in this game.
