A lot hinges on injuries. If AJ Green doesn’t play I don’t like our chances. But I will assume he does. 

Even still, our defense has not shown me anything to make me feel confident moving forward. 

ATL- 30

CIN- 24

I'm fairly optimistic about this game.  I like the Bengals in a bounce back game here.  It makes no sense really, since it's in Atlanta.  But i think the offense will play well, and the defense will generate a couple of turnovers.  I think this is finally the game the defensive line goes HAM and converts some pressures into drive ending sacks.

I do think Tevin Coleman gets about 10 targets for 9 catches and 120 yards though.  That's going to be ugly.

I am confident in the offense..will be much tougher if AJ can't go.. a couple less John Ross interceptions will be nice

The defense on the other hand scares me.. the LB situation is just a mess, hopefully Brown is back this week and they definitely have to watch out for Coleman

Geno and the boys gotta get after Ryan

Guess it depends on who plays.

 

No Green?  No Mixon?  No Brown?  No way we win.

 

Now if some guys return and are productive, it will be close.  

 

Since nothing is known definitively at this point, I'll saying someting like 27-24 Falcons.  I hope I'm wrong.

Some doom in gloom in here.  But consider what happens if a few 50/50 things go the other way last week.  

  • Bullock makes the 53 yarder
  • Hubbard blocks the punt
  • Hubbard falls on that sack
  • Dre can catch

Ok, forget that last one.  But if any of those things happen than the game could have turned the other way.  It was close.  

Atlanta is winnable.  Even without Green or Mixon.  Tougher, but winnable.  Just need some of the young guys to make a play.

We aren't much better in that department.

 

Our MLB has missed two games.  Our WLB will miss one more.  Our sratrting rookie C went down in week 2.  Green is gimpy, but likely to play.  No idea on Michael Johnson.  

 

It could be the day to take the OVER, whatever the line is set at

Rehab field.  He and Green both game out for warmups/stretching,  then went over the rehab field.

Price was spotted on the bike.

My bet is that Green plays.  Mixon is back next week.  And Price is back the week after that.
