Fearless Freddie’s Football Forecast

FOUR IN A ROW? Are the Buffalo Bills good enough to emerge from a three-game losing streak and win on the road Sunday in Cincinnati? Doubtful.

Not even a week of rest and the Bengals recovering from a Monday night game will make a difference. And to think this team was once 4-2.

Freddie sees it this way:

BENGALS 28, Bills 24
