The Take

I think we’re going to see some offense in this one.  The Bengals have a dynamic offense, led by Andy Dalton and AJ Green.  Dalton is near the top of the nfl in yds/attempt, helped by the emergence of young WRs Hawkins and Binns.  The OL has been solid and provided good protection for Dalton, led by OTs Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith.  Meanwhile the Dolphins will be without starting CB Richard Marshall.  Nickel CB Carroll has battled an Achilles injury and could be limited.  The team had to promote D’Andre Presley from the practice squad this week to shore up the secondary.

Miami rookie QB Ryan Tannehill had his coming out party last week, putting up huge stats in the loss to Arizona.  It was even more impressive considering the pass rush he was facing and the fact that Fins could not get the rushing attack going.  This week they will be facing one of the worst rush defenses in the NFL, as cincy is allowing over 5 yds/carry.  Look for Miami to continue to run Reggie Bush behind LG Incognito and LT Jake Long to set up favorable passing situations for Tannehill.  With the emergence of WR Brian Hartline and the status of the Cincy secondary (likely without CBs Allen and Kirkpatrick; CBs Clements and Hall are banged up but probable), I think Miami will be balanced on offense and able to move the chains.  Lets lean Over the total for now while keeping an eye on the gameday weather.

Lean Over 45
