Week 4: vs Kansas City Chiefs
All QB vs KC
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Andy Dalton and company blew up at Baltimore last week - Dalton threw 20/32 for 394 yards passing, three TDs and one interceptions, and A.J. Green was a fantasy monster with 13 targets for an astounding 10/227/2 receiving - he blew past an outclassed Baltimore secondary routinely last week. Marvin Jones was second fiddle to Green (eight for 5/94/1), while Giovani Bernard chipped in with four for 3/34/0 and Mohamed Sanu posted four for 2/28/0 in his #3 wide receiver role. The Bengals fired on almost all cylinders last week, but Tyler Eifert owners were unhappy (zero receptions). It's all good on this unit entering Week Four.
The Chiefs' pass D was buzz-sawed by Aaron Rodgers last Monday night - when the torture was over K.C. had allowed 24/35 for 333 yards passing, five TDs and zero interceptions to the Green Bay machine. To date, the Chiefs are ranked 28th in the NFL averaging 287.0 net yards allowed per game, with 10 passing scores coughed up vs. only two interceptions generated. The Chiefs do have nine sacks (tied for fifth in the NFL), but that is not a consolation after the devastating loss to Green Bay.
This looks like a great matchup for the nuclear-hot Bengals. Also, the rushing attack faces an uphill battle against the Chiefs so look for Dalton to be slinging the ball a bunch again this weekend.
