THE TEAM NEWS

CINCINNATI BENGALS

  • Cincinnati were awful once again and are headed towards the #1 draft pick as they fell to 0-9 in a heavy loss to Baltimore with the Bengals showing very little on either side of the ball in that loss.
  • Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green was set to return to action in Week 10 but he has suffered a setback and his comeback date is now unknown with time running out for him to make his seasonal debut.
  • Defensive lineman Geno Atkins was added to the injury report on Thursday as he failed to practice because of a knee injury whilst offensive guard Alex Redmond was another new addition with knee and ankle issues.

OAKLAND RAIDERS

  • Oakland were able to edge Los Angeles Chargers in a thrilling Thursday Night Football contest last week as they improved to 5-4 with that crucial win that puts them right in the mix to progress to the post-season.
  • The Raiders are struggling with injuries in the secondary and have now lost safety Karl Joseph for the season due to a foot injury with fellow safety Lamarcus Joyner unable to practice at the start of the week due to a hamstring issue.
  • Tackle David Sharpe suffered a recurrence of his calf injury after logging a limited practice on Wednesday with him subsequently sitting out Thursday’s session and his availability for Sunday is in some doubt.

THE PREDICTION

Oakland are on a high after back-to-back successes and will be confident of making it three wins in a row as they host the winless Cincinnati. The Bengals were almost waving the white flag last week and the season cannot end soon enough for them with a high draft pick now looking inevitable. The Raiders are playing some good football at the minute and they should be far too strong for the struggling Bengals.
