WhoDeyFans, a Cincinnati Bengals fan site, shot a few questions over to me about this Sunday’s matchup.
What Scares You About the Bengals?
The Bengals tend to be underestimated because of their dysfunctional 2008 season. With Carson Palmer back, this team has the potential to be an offensive powerhouse. Even with losing T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Palmer still has the Ochocinco and Laveranues Coles options in the air, and Cedric Benson on the ground. If things are clicking for them I don’t know if the Broncos new 3-4 defense has developed enough to stop them.
What Match-Up Makes You Feel Confident in the Broncos?
Our talented offensive line should be able to contain the Bengals pass rush. This is something that’s of great importance to the Broncos since Kyle Orton and Chris Simms are both coming back from injuries and will need time in the pocket to execute. I think our primary receiving options (Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal, Jabar Gaffney, and Brandon Stokley) can create space against the Benglas corners/safeties, and sit in a pocket downfield.
