Good afternoon, football fans! This is Keyon Jeff, Featured Columnist here, ready to guide you through the inter-conference battle between the New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals from Paul Brown Stadium.
New Orleans (8-3) have won four straight and five of their last six games, but they still trail the Falcons by a game in the NFC South. Quarterback Drew Brees has won nine of 10 against AFC opponents. Saints inactives for the game include: RB Pierre Thomas, T Charles Brown, DE Junior Galette, DB Matt Giordano, OLB Ramon Humber, TE Tory Humphrey, and DB Leigh Torrence
Cincinnati (2-9) have lost eight straight and are at the bottom of the AFC North. The T.Ocho experiment has not helped the offense, despite their individual success and the defense has collapsed. Bengals inactives include DE Victor Adeyanju, DB Fred Bennett, T Kirk Chambers, DB Brandon Ghee, RB Cedric Peerman, WR Jerome Simpson, and C Reggie Stephens.
So join me for the next three hours or so, and see who prevails. I'll talk about everything from X’s and O’s to the Fox commentators (Ron Pitts and John Lynch) and have some fun along the way.
