Bengals underdogs vs Eagles, both teams looking for first win
CINCINNATI — The Bengals hit the road for a second-straight week, as they travel to Philadelphia for a matchup with the Eagles on Sunday.
The Eagles are also 0-2. They lost to Washington 27-17 in Week 1 and were blown out by the Rams 37-19 on Sunday.
Philadelphia has been outscored 57-19 in their last six quarters of play.
Despite their struggles, the Eagles opened as a 6.5-point favorite over the Bengals in Week 3 according to BetOnline.
The spread has dropped to 4.5, as the majority of the money was placed on Cincinnati this week.
That isn't surprising. A 6.5-point line seemed like it was a bit much, especially considering what the Bengals have done over the past two games. They've lost by a total of eight points.
The Eagles have struggled on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Carson Wentz completed 26-of-42 passes for 246 yards on Sunday. He didn't have a touchdown and threw two interceptions.
The Rams are a quality team and the Eagles will obviously be desperate for a win, but there's no reason why the Bengals can't win in Philadelphia.
Both teams could be shorthanded going into Sunday's game. Geno Atkins remains out for Cincinnati with a shoulder injury. Mike Daniels (groin) has also missed practice this week.
Eagles defensive tackle Fletcher Cox missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday. That would be a huge loss for Philadelphia.
Kickoff is on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
