2016 Week 4 Game Preview Cincinnati Bengals vs Miami Dolphins
The Bengals have a tough stretch of games to open the 2016 season.Michael Oher Jersey.
You already know at the Jets in Week 1,Noah Spence Jersey, at the Steelers in Week 2,Tom Savage Jersey, and then home vs the Broncos in Week 3.Christian Hackenberg Jersey. Ranking the Bengals' 2016 schedule,Ben Roethlisberger Jersey, those are probably three of the five toughest games they'll play this year.Frank Gore Jersey.
That's not quite as true with the Dolphins in Week 4.Anquan Boldin Jersey. Though Miami has enough talent to be a playoff team,Paxton Lynch Jersey, they were always unable to put it together under former head coach Joe Philbin.Kevin White Jersey.
Ironically,Drew Brees Jersey, it was the Bengals who got as good of a look at that potential as anyone. Twice in the four-year run of Philbin did Miami upset Cincinnati, both at home and at Paul Brown Stadium.
So when the Fighting Fins roll into the Jungle in Week 4, the Bengals will have a bit of revenge on their mind.
And Philbin did a good job of building up a franchise that went 6-10 the year before he took over to earning back-to-back 8-8 seasons from 2013-14, which was preceded by a 7-9 year in 2012. But neither the offense or defense could find enough chemistry to avoid the franchise's ninth non-winning season since 2006.
Those were two seasons where Atkins was in his prime and the cursed fields of Miami's stadium robbed Atkins and the Bengals of quality playing time
