On Thanksgiving Day, the Cincinnati Bengals meets the NY Jets for an all-AFC team match at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Expect a surge of fans to troop in the stadium as they watch their beloved Jets while they celebrate Thanksgiving.
The Bengals showed a lot of promise during the offseason. There were personnel changes that in paper it was the best upgrade they have as a team.
The season looks promising with QB Carson Palmer having two All-Star WRs Chad Ochocinco and Terrel Owens as his prime target. However, eleven weeks into the season the Bengals are in last place in the AFC North with a 2-8 record and a seven-game losing streak.
They are surely out of contention for the playoffs but instead of sulking with their losses, they could still iron out their kinks and finish the season on a high note.
The NY Jets pulled out another come-from-behind win in their Week 11 game against the Houston Texans. Sitting atop the AFC East win an identical 8-2 record with the Patriots, the Jets are once again primed to march in the NFL Playoffs.
However, their defensive unit must play tough and physical defense for the whole game in order to put away teams early rather than succumbing to a shootout until the end. The Jets needs every win they could get to create a separation against the Patriots for the AFC East division title.
The sportsbook handicappers have installed the NY Jets as a 9-point favorite to beat the Cincinnati Bengals on Thanksgiving Day. Sit back, relax and enjoy a slice of turkey and cranberry juice as you watch the game between the Jets and Bengals.
