The Raiders and Bengals faced off on November 21 and the Bengals won 32-13, a game where Cincinnati led in time of possession and went 70 plays. The Bengals are the better team, and it feels like people are just waiting for these Raiders to leave. That said, the Raiders play with an odd sort of confidence and are a team that just finds ways to hang around. The Raiders also play some of their best balls on the road where they’ve won five of their last eight tries, and they’ve covered six of their last eight as road underdogs. The Bengals are young in many key positions, so who knows how they fare in those places, and the weather is expected to be cold and rainy.

Give me the points.
