Seahawks vs. Bengals key players to watch
Kenneth Walker: The best chance at success for the Seahawks in this game is to run the ball effectively against the Bengals. Cincinnati has done a terrible job at stopping the run lately, ranking 30th in the NFL in opponent yards per carry, allowing teams to average 5.3 yards per rush against them. That means Kenneth Walker could be in for a big game on Sunday.
Joe Burrow: The Bengals quarterback had his strongest start of the season in Week 5 against the Cardinals, completing 78.3% of passes for 317 yards and three touchdowns. If the Bengals want to turn around their season, they need more starts like that from Burrow.
Seahawks vs. Bengals prediction and pick
Despite winning two games, I'm still not impressed by the Bengals and I'm not banking on them returning to the version of the Bengals we've come to expect. Heading into Week 6, they're 31st in the NFL in Net Yards per Play. The Seahawks outrank them in just about every single metric and the numbers show they're the much better team this season.
I need to see a lot more from the Bengals to be convinced to not only bet on them, but to lay points on them as favorites.
I think the wrong team is favored in this game. The Seahawks are my favorite upset pick of the week.
