Week 8 Prediction: Jets at Bengals
October, 25, 2013
By ESPN New York staff
|BENGALS 23, JETS 14
The Bengals are hot and the Jets can't handle prosperity. They'll have trouble with Andy Dalton 's short-passing game and the Bengals' front four.
|BENGALS 23, JETS 17
Another big test for Geno Smith. He'll handle himself just fine, but don't think the Jets have enough weapons to beat one of the better teams in the league on the road.
|BENGALS 23, JETS 13
The Bengals are very good at home. In two of its three home wins, Cincinnati only gave up a total of 16 points.
|BENGALS 24, JETS 20
The Jets have been good, but are still inconsistent and the Bengals are tough at home.
|BENGALS 23, JETS 10
The Jets have been a pleasant surprise, but inconsistent. And winning in Cincinnati is too much to ask.
|BENGALS 29, JETS 17
The Jets won't be able to run on Cincinnati. That'll leave Geno exposed on the road. Cincinnati still has a lot to prove, but this isn't Atlanta.
|JETS 17, BENGALS 16
The Jets have had a ton of success in recent years against Cincy ... even when they're good.
|BENGALS 24, JETS 14
Cincy's front four will be too much.
|BENGALS 24, JETS 13
This will be the Jets' toughest test of the year. The Bengals are big, physical, tough and just plain better.
|BENGALS 27, JETS 17
The Jets will keep it close early but Cincinnati will win at home.
|BENGALS 20, JETS 13
It's tough to pick against a good team on the road for consecutive upsets.
|JETS 21, BENGALS 20
Hall of Famer Warren Sapp says for road games, pack your defense and a running game. The Jets will have enough of both to stun the Bengals.
