Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict will not be playing Sunday as he is still serving his 3 game suspension. That can’t be good news for Cincy to stop DeAngelo Williams. Forte burned Cincy defense for 155 total yards in week 1, while Williams had 143 yards rushing and 2 TDs in week 1. It’s going to be a long day for Cincy run defense.
