Redskins, Bengals, you can’t hop on a plane soon enough. The NFL’s flirtation with London hasn’t exactly brought Super Bowl-contending teams overseas this season, perhaps another reason, in a long list of them, for the decline in TV ratings.
When the NFL schedule was revealed in the offseason, this looked like a big game — two division champs who both won 12 games last season, no major changes on either side. It looked like a playoff preview.
It hasn’t been a great start to the 2016 season for the Miami Dolphins. After losing their first two games on the road to the Seattle Seahawks and the New England Patriots, the Dolphins barely squeaked out a 30-24 victory over the Cleveland Browns last Sunday.
The defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos hit the road for the first time this season and face a stiff test against a Cincinnati Bengals team that not only has their sights set on another playoff appearance, but have their backs against the wall looking to avoid a 1-2 start to the year.
