Cincinnati (6-2) at Miami (3/4)
When: 7:30 p.m. today.
The line: Bengals -2.5 (43)
TV: NFL Network (cable).
The skinny: The Bengals are just about the hottest team in the NFL thanks to the league's hottest arm in QB Andy Dalton, who has been tearing defenses to shreds, setting new team records along the way. The Fish have lost four in a row, and it looks very much like they're on their way to five. After blowing a two-TD lead against the Patriots on Sunday, a loss this week probably wraps up their playoff hopes.
MattE's pick: Bengals 34, Dolphins 16
