Las Vegas Raiders vs Cincinnati Bengals: 3 bold predictions in Week 11
Defense forces two interceptions
The Las Vegas Raiders defense was picked apart on Sunday night, as Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs put up 41 points on them. The issues were all over the defense, as they struggled to get a pass rush, and the secondary had no answer for the likes of Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and company.
This weekend, the Raiders take on a Bengals team that also has dynamic playmakers on offense, including wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase and running back Joe Mixon, as well as Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd. Burrow has more than a few weapons to utilize, but he has also had his issues protecting the football as of late.
Burrow has thrown at least one interception in all but two of his games this season, including two the last time out against Cleveland. He likes to force the ball downfield and will take shots, so the Raiders need to take advantage of those opportunities, and possibly nab two interceptions of their own.
