Featured game | New York Giants vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Why the Bengals can cover

Backup quarterback Brandon Allen is dealing with a concussion, so Jake Browning looks to make an early splash for that unit. Browning is an accurate quarterback who possesses solid mechanics and footwork. He played in the rhythm of the offense and made plays in the first preseason game, going 13-for-24 for 190 yards.

Rookie receiver Kendrick Pryor is an athletic playmaker with quick releases off the line. Pryor moves in and out of his breaks fluidly with speed to break away from defenders. The Wisconsin product has strong hands with the ability to make plays downfield. He led the team with four catches for 89 yards and a score in the first preseason contest.

Why the Giants can cover

Veteran Tyrod Taylor is expected to be under center for part of the game. Taylor is an accurate thrower with quickness and agility to get out of the pocket. The Virginia Tech product is determined and gets the ball out quickly. He has impressed the coaches during training camp so far. In the first preseason game, he went 13-for-21 for 169 yards and a score.

Running back Antonio Williams will look to play for New York in the coming weeks. Williams flashed some vision last week, leading the team with nine carries for 61 yards and a score. Tailback Gary Brightwell is another playmaker in the backfield who gained 40 yards in the first preseason contest.
