In The Trenches with Dave Lapham

Laps Keys To Bengals Victory New York Jets

September 24, 2022

In Week Three of the NFL season, the Cincinnati Bengals will travel to MetLife Stadium to take on the New York Jets, who are coming off a come-from-behind win over the Cleveland Browns. 

The Bengals and Jets have met each other 28 times, including two postseason games, with the Jets leading the match-up with 18 wins to the Bengals 10.

Last season, the Jets came away with a 34-31 win over the Bengals as backup quarterback Mike White went 37-of-45 for 405 yards and three touchdowns.  This game will see another backup quarterback face the Bengals. However, the backup, Joe Flacco, owns a Super Bowl he won with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Bengals come to New York banged up as right tackle La'el Collins and tight end Hayden Hurst are both listed as questionable. Linebacker Germaine Pratt is listed as doubtful after not participating in practice on Friday.

Can Joe Burrow put the past two weeks behind him and return to the form he showed last season?

Will the offensive line show why ownership invested big money to protect Burrow?

Has cover two become Burrow's kryptonite this season?
