These teams will basically have a tug-of-war match enduring through this entire game. The ball will probably change hands a ton, but mainly via punts/4th downs. The struggle will be almost painful to watch for fans of both teams and their will be fairly even amounts of points thrown up on the board due to the Saints ability to score and their lack of red zone defensive skills, contrary to common belief with their 3-4 defense set-up. I predict Saints:35 to Bengals: 31.
