Cincinnati's offense has nothing to prove in this preseason. They want to keep star QB Joe Burrow healthy and the backups are below-average with Trevor Siemian, Jake Browning, and Reid Sinnett. The Bengals are loaded with talent and depth on the defensive side of the line. Atlanta upgraded its defense in the offseason signing safety Jessie Bates III, defensive linemen David Onyemata and Calais Campbell and LB Kaden Elliss. The defense looked great in Week 1, a 19-3 win at Miami. The Falcons have a conservative run-first offense with young QB Desmond Ridder, Taylor Heinicke, and Logan Woodside. Atlanta won the opener despite getting just 227 yards on offense as the defense forced four turnovers. This looks like another battle with far more defense than offense. Take Cincinnati/Atlanta UNDER the total - Max Play.
