Bengals vs Jets Week 3 Game Info
2022 NFL Regular Season — Week 3
Cincinnati Bengals (0-2, 0-1 Away) vs. New York Jets (1-1, 0-1 Home)
Date: Sunday, September 25, 2022
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
Venue: MetLife Stadium — East Rutherford, NJ
The Cincinnati Bengals will aim to secure their first win of the season when they visit the New York Jets in Week 3 NFL action. The Bengals have dropped each of their first two games by a field goal and cannot protect quarterback Joe Burrow. Cincinnati has allowed a league-high 13 sacks so far.
Meanwhile, the Jets are riding high after their most improbable win in years. Head coach Robert Saleh's team overcame a 13-point deficit with two minutes to go in the fourth quarter to take down the Cleveland Browns 31-30. Another unexpected win would surely brighten spirits in New York.

Bengals vs Jets Prediction & Pick
It's important not to get too caught up in NFL storylines. Yes, the Bengals have been subpar through the first two weeks and the Jets came alive with a great performance in Week 2. Cincinnati is still a deeper and more talented team, though. This is the perfect bounce-back spot for Burrow and company.
Head coach Zac Taylor knows that an 0-3 record would greatly diminish his squad's chances of making the playoffs. Expect him to keep his foot on the gas and run this score up if given the opportunity. I'll take a desperate Bengals team to come out with motivation and get the job done.
Final Score Prediction: Bengals: 27 | Jets: 17

Bengals vs Jets Best Bet
All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
This spread was set closer to a touchdown before Week 2 games took place and dropping it down to 4.5 points is likely an overreaction. The Jets are relying solely on the passing attack through the first two weeks and Cincinnati has allowed the seventh-lowest completion rate in the NFL (57.7%).
Getting out to an early lead here is crucial and the Bengals know that. Early deficits in Weeks 1 and 2 have led to disappointing losses, so look for Burrow to come out firing against a Jets' defense that is giving up 11.1 yards per completion (No. 24 in NFL). Take Cincinnati to cover the spread on the road.
Bet: Cincinnati Bengals -4.5 (-110)
