Still looking for their first win of the 2022 NFL regular season, Joe Burrow's Cincinnati Bengals hit the road to face Robert Saleh and the New York Jets.
The Bengals are off to an awful start just one season after reaching the Super Bowl and will look to rebound from the previous two weeks against a rebuilding Jets squad that mounted a comeback Week 2 win against the Cleveland Browns behind Joe Flacco and Garrett Wilson. The game kicks off Sunday at 1 p.m. ET from MetLife Stadium.

Lorenzo Reyes: Bengals 26, Jets 20
Cincinnati is better than its record shows, though it needs to solve its offensive line issues. Zac Taylor should have a plan in place to overcompensate for this, perhaps getting the ball out more quickly. And while the Jets pulled off the miraculous upset last week, I’m chalking that up more to Cleveland’s absolute collapse and lack of urgency more than anything.
Safid Deen: Bengals 28, Jets 20
Joe Burrow and the defending AFC champion Bengals have been down 17-3 in both of their games this season, but that trend will end this week. Burrow will find star receiver Ja’Marr Chase early and often, and the Bengals get their first win. The Jets, after a thrilling comeback at Cleveland last week and beating Cincinnati at home last season, won’t be able to overcome Cincy’s firepower in this one.
Lance Pugmire: Bengals 35, Jets 10
An opportunity to restore confidence following wrenching defeats to the Steelers and Cowboys, the defending AFC champions should score the rout here. If not, the trouble is real.
Jarrett Bell: Bengals 26, Jets 20
Nate Davis: Bengals 27, Jets 23
Tyler Dragon: Bengals 26, Jets 20
