The 2016 NFL season was one where many expected the Cincinnati Bengals to roll through the AFC North while the Dallas Cowboys struggled without Tony Romo in the NFC East. Through the first four weeks, it has been a very different story with Cincinnati struggling to a 2-2 record while Dallas sits at 3-1. The two teams meet up on Sunday afternoon in Dallas looking to move one step closer to a playoff berth in this interconference showdown. Here is a look at the matchup.
The Bengals beat the Miami Dolphins 22-7 last week and have had over a week to prepare for this matchup. Andy Dalton has passed for 1,234 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions while hitting A.J. Green 32 times for 468 yards and two touchdowns. Jeremy Hill has been solid on the ground with 221 rushing yards and three touchdowns. This game comes down to the defense though with the Bengals giving up ten passing touchdowns already this season. While they do face a rookie quarterback in this one, can they hold off another passing attack to get a win?
The Cowboys won their third straight game with a 24-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers. Dak Prescott has thrown for 1,012 yards and three touchdowns this season so far and loves looking the way of Cole Beasley and Jason Witten. Beasley has 23 catches while Witten has 21. Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for 412 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and is showing why he deserved to be the No. 4 overall pick in the draft this past April. The defense will need to find a way to slow down the Dalton to Green connection. If they can, Dallas could easily be 4-1 after this week.
