The best matchup in Week 8 is ... Jets-Bengals? Going by record, apparently. Both teams sport impressive defensive fronts that occasionally receive some support from the offense whenever Geno Smith and Andy Dalton feel like stepping up.
With a low-scoring affair on tap, the Bengals could have a tough time putting up enough points to cover a 6.5-point line.
