Las Vegas Raiders: Previewing the 2021 Cincinnati Bengals
If the offensive line can keep Joe Burrow upright, and Zac Taylor can prove himself to be a solid coach, I believe the Bengals could be a solid, scrappy team that will give good to great teams like the Raiders a fight till the last second of the game. This is a team the Raiders should beat if they are not playing down to their opponents like they have seemed to do in these recent years, but this Bengals team will not be a walkover in any sense of the word.
They have improved both on offense and defense by adding known commodities, and a ton of offensive upside in Chase. They now may have one of the more talented receiving corps, led by Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Chase, which could prove difficult to handle for the ever-struggling Raiders secondary.
The Las Vegas Raiders have a loaded backfield heading into 2021, and Jalen Richard could end up traded before the season begins.
Las Vegas improved enough on the defensive side of the ball to be able to stop Burrow and this offense, and the Raiders offense certainly is going to move the ball against this defense. Overall, the Raiders should be able to win this one in a big way in front of the home crowd.
