Zac Taylor vs Arthur Smith

The Cincinnati Bengals enter this preseason game without their star quarterback Joe Burrow, as he’s recovering from a calf injury. Yet they are taking no chances; preseason is crucial in evaluating team depth – specifically at the quarterback position where Joe Burrow’s absence allows the Bengals to evaluate Trevor Siemian and Jake Browning more carefully – both have shown some promise but still require further work to prove themselves as reliable options.

The Bengals defense endured a disappointing outing in their initial preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, conceding 36 points. However, key players were held back so less experienced players could take to the field. When facing Atlanta Falcons later on this month, expect more first-string defense action as their goal will be tightening up the defense while decreasing yardage given up while also maintaining player freshness and finding a balance between protecting the goal line and keeping players fresh.

Atlanta Falcons fans have an opportunity to witness an entirely new era this preseason with second-year quarterback Desmond Ridder leading their team with confidence after taking over late last season. Additionally, new offensive weapons including running back Bijan Robinson are set to help increase offense in an already competitive NFC South Division.

The Falcons have also made significant strides on defense during this offseason, adding S Jessie Bates III, cornerbacks Jeff Okudah and Mike Hughes, along with veteran DE Calais Campbell and LB/Rusher Bud Dupree for depth and strength to their defensive unit. While Ridder is often at the forefront of fan attention, his teammates understand that having an effective defense is vital for success; their goal is to the Bengals offensive attempts by shutting them down as much as possible.

NFL Odds/Point Spread: Cincinnati Bengals +7, Total Odds: 38.5

As the two teams collide, expect a mix of first-string and backup players to take to the field, offering valuable experience to those hoping to secure roster spots. Both squads will likely strive for improvement from their opening preseason games; we should anticipate an engaging battle that showcases both depth and talent within each squad; though Joe Burrow’s absence may alter Bengal’s offensive dynamics, their defense should be out to prove itself and take revenge on its opponent.
