NFL Best Bets: What to expect from Joe Burrow and the new look Bengals offense

The Cincinnati Bengals and Washington Football Team meet up in Week 2 of the 2021 NFL preseason at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET. Bengals broadcast info can be found here, while the game will air on NBC 4 in Washington, D.C.. Given that this is the preseason, we’ll see plenty of unknown and lesser known faces on the rosters. To keep track of who you’re watching checking out the Bengals roster and the Washington roster.

The Football Team lost to the New England Patriots 22-13 in Week 1. Ryan Fitzpatrick played some snaps, but Steven Montez got most of the work. There aren’t many major camp battles here, but the receivers are worth monitoring. Dyami Brown and Steven Sims Jr. should get more work in the second preseason game.

The Bengals beat the defending champions Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-14, but did not play Joe Burrow or Joe Mixon. The wide receiver depth chart continues to have intrigue, with Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd all competing for playing time. Cincinnati would be smart to deploy all three, but how will the arrangement look? The second preseason game should tell us more.

If you aren’t around a TV to check out this preseason contest, you’ll need to dig a little deeper for streaming options.
