Week 7 NFL preview: Bengals vs. Lions

New, comment

The Bengals and Lions are both talented squads capable of beating anyone in the NFL, including themselves. Will AJ Green and Gio Bernard provide enough offense to get the Bengals the win? Is Calvin Johnson's knee healthy enough for him to have an impact in the game? Matt Ufford previews the game and makes his pick.

The Cincinnati Bengals head to Detroit to take on the Lions in one of the week's most unpredictable matchups. The Bengals posses a strong defense and talented running backs but have gotten inconsistent play from Andy Dalton this season. The Lions offense likely rests on health of Calvin Johnson's knee. He was limited to just 39 snaps last week, though undrafted rookie tight end Joseph Fauria filled in as the go-to red zone receiver with three touchdowns on three catches.
