Found November 20, 2012 on Football Nation:
The Oakland Raiders come into this game sporting the NFL's worst points against defense yielding 32.2 PPG. Through the air the Raiders have given up 20 TD passes which ties them for second worst in that category. With the quick strike capability of QB Andy Dalton and WR A.J. Green, I would expect for this combination to link up for at least 2 TD passes. A.J. Green comes into this game leading all NFL receivers in touchdown receptions with 10.The Oakland defense should also have a hard time slowing down the Bengals running game. The Raiders gave up 122.4 YPG. With that they have allowed  14 rushing touchdowns, which is second worse in the league. Benjarvus Green-Ellis, though he comes into this game averaging 3.5 YPC, should be able to have a solid ballgame. This will help the Cincinnati Bengals' play-action passing game. Look for Green-Ellis to be a major factor in this game rushing the ball, and possibly going over the century mark in yards with a score.Carson Palmer is goi...

Cincinnati Bengals: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#20)

Last week: 26 (+6) Record: 5-5 The Bengals now stand at 5-5, but I won’t rule them out to be this year’s team that goes from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. The Lions are the favorite and I also won’t rule out that we won’t have one this year, something that’s only happened once in the last decade. However, looking at the Bengals remaining schedule, they’re only definitely...
