The Bengals haven't won a game since beating the Jets in Week 1. Will that change tonight?

If you could burn the Dolphins secondary like this, A.J., that would be much appreciated.

UPDATE: Final Score: Bengals 22, Dolphins 7.

Tonight we have a matchup of 1-2 teams, as the Miami Dolphins travel to Cincinnati to face the Bengals. Both teams come into this clash less than full strength. Miami is down multiple players, including possibly backup centre Anthony Steen; starter Mike Pouncey is out. If the Dolphins roll out third stringer Kraig Urbik he could have a tough day against Geno Atkins and a solid Bengal defensive front. Vontaze Burfict returns from suspension and this could further challenge Miami particularly in trying to run the football and take some load off Ryan Tannehill.

Meanwhile, the Bengals, looking to get going after losing two straight, have tight end Tyler Eifert - who hasn't yet played this season - doubtful for this clash; the pressure remains on Tyler Boyd and Brandon LaFell to step up as playmakers opposite A.J. Green. The Bengals will also look to get more out of their running game against a Miami defence near the bottom of the league at stopping the run.

Please leave your thoughts below, and as ever please do not ask for or provide illegal streams for the game.
