Pro Football Network: Bengals 28 Jets 17

Ben Rolfe writes: "The Bengals have had a superb start to the 2021 season. Their victory over the Ravens in Baltimore announced them as genuine AFC contenders. Meanwhile, the Jets limp into this game potentially without Zach Wilson under center. Realistically, the only difference Wilson likely makes here is whether the Jets cover the 10-point spread or not. One note of caution — beware of a slow start from the Bengals after their marquee win in Week 7. It should not change the result, but it could make for an uncomfortable experience if you bet on them."

Andrew Buller-Russ writes: "The Bengals are sure to get the better end of this one, with how suffocating their defense has been and how badly Wilson has played thus far. Not to mention the Jets, nor anyone else can stop Ja’Marr Chase. This one could get ugly for Jets backers."

Teddy Ricketson writes: "The Bengals should roll here. First, it is the Jets. Second, the Bengals have been playing their best football in a while and the Joe Burrow to Ja’Marr Chase connection has been real. I don’t think the Jets will be able to slow down the Bengals' offense and I think the Bengals easily cover."

CBS Sports: Bengals 24, Jets 17

John Breech writes: "The Jets offense is going to be built around a rookie quarterback (Zach Wilson) and a rookie running back (Michael Carter) this year and if you can't stop an offense that's led by two rookies, then you might as well just give up on the season. I don't think the Bengals will be giving up on the season here."

Chris Roling writes: "Another team that punched the reset button under center, the Jets and rookie passer Zach Wilson project to be a rather easy road affair for the Bengals as they go eight weeks in a row without a break. This has big Joe Mixon game written all over it as the Bengals steal one in the Big Apple."
