Welcome back for more Thursday Night Football! The Cincinnati Bengals host the Miami Dolphins to kick off Week 4. CBS gets tonight’s game, with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms calling it.
I don’t know if I would call this an overly interesting matchup. You get Ryan Tannehill vs. Andy Dalton. The Bengals are clearly the better team, and should have an edge on Thursday Night Football. But the Bengals have given up big numbers in the pass game. With Arian Foster out and the ground game a big question mark, I think we end up seeing Tannehill chucking it a whole bunch.
For tonight’s game, I have the Dolphins covering. They are an eight point favorite, but I’m not exactly wildly enthused by the pick. I like anything above a touchdown, so that’s a plus. But I’m holding my nose with this pick.
