There are three defensive matchups I like this week.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns
While Cleveland's offense surprised people last week, their performance was partially due to what has become an under-performing and inconsistent Vikings defense. The Cincinnati Bengals defense is much more consistent and stout. It may give up yards, but Brian Hoyer won't get three touchdowns like he did against the Vikings. He might have three turnovers, though.
Kansas City Chiefs vs. New York Giants
The Giants are playing awful football and Eli Manning is making tons of bad decisions. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are doing a great job defensively, led by Dontari Poe and a solid defensive line. Life probably doesn't get better for the Giants in KC, but I do believe it will be sweet for the fantasy owners of the Chiefs defense.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
In general, the Cardinals aren't a horrid defense. They have a good secondary and can generate a pass rush. They'll be facing a rookie quarterback who has a slow delivery, struggles with reads, and is still pretty raw. Now, he's probably not the same quarterback today that he was in college, and he has Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams to throw to, but you can expect the Cardinals' corners to be looking to generate turnovers on an unproven quarterback.
