Bengals vs Saints : The Saints and Bengals head into Week 10 looking to solidify their playoff positions. New Orleans is coming off a big win as they handed the Rams their first loss of the season and are perched atop the NFC South. Cincinnati is coming off their bye week and are second in the AFC North.
Drew Brees is rolling this season and leads the NFL in completion percentage (76.3) and passer rating (120.6). In Week 9 he threw for 346 yards with four touchdowns – his 22nd career game with four-or-more touchdowns and zero interceptions.

With the game the game tied at 35, Brees set up a 54-yard field goal by Wil Lutz to give New Orleans a three-point lead, and then put the game out of reach with a 75-yard touchdown to Michael Thomas. Including that 75-yard play, Thomas had 211 receiving yards which set a new Saints record.
The Bengals may have won their last game, but hopefully they used their bye week to go over their defensive strategies. While they won 37-34 against Tampa Bay, they allowed a whopping 576 yards to the Bucs – which is the highest total in team history.
The good news for Cincinnati is they are 3-1 at home this season. The bad news, they’ll be most likely without top receiver A.J. Green who has a toe injury. Cincinnati is hoping their five young receivers John Ross, Josh Malone, Cody Core, Alex Erickson and Auden Tate – who have 19 receptions for 165 yards and two touchdowns, by Ross – can get the job done along with veteran Tyler Boyd.
