Seldom do NFL fans expect to watch a Bengals game live or a Saints game live and see their quarterback looking for a slump buster. That’s exactly what we’ll get today as we watch Cincinnati Bengals at New Orleans Saints online free live or on TV on CBS Sports. Both coming off a horrible performance, the Bengals’ Andy Dalton and Saints’ Drew Brees are each looking for redemption and two avoid a two-game skid.
Last week’s Saints game was a close 24-27 overtime loss to the San Francisco 49ers in which Brees had two interceptions and a fumble. Brees was critical of himself afterwards but did pass for 292 yards and three touchdowns. Naturally he’ll be looking for a rebound at home in today’s Bengals game, as Cincinnati allows nearly 250 yards passing per game and 143 on the ground.
The latter stat bodes well for running back Mark Ingram, who’s rushed for 100+ yards for three straight games and has 551 yards on the season. But the big opportunity is for Brees to spread the love among his receiving targets.
Rookie receiver Brandin Cooks will get some opportunities against the Bengals, but keep an eye on tight end Jimmy Graham as you watch the Bengals at Saints game live online or on CBS Sports. The Bengals have struggled defending tight ends all year, and Graham is Brees’ top receiving target with 594 yards.
Bengals QB Andy Dalton has an opportunity of his own in today’s Saints game. Namely, a chance to show that his performance against the Browns last week — 10-of-33 with three interceptions and 2.0 passer rating — was a fluke. The pressure will really be on to rebound now that RB Giovani Bernard has been ruled out for today’s Saints game. Against a Saints pass defense that’s been inconsistent and allows 259.2 yards per game, Dalton will get his chances.
Though the Saints have won the past three times these teams have met, today’s Bengals at Saints game should be close. Here is some pre-game info before you watch Cincinnati Bengals at New Orleans Saints online free live CBS Sports stream.
