The Cincinnati Bengals have a chance to be above .500 for the second time this season as they travel to Arlington, Texas to face the Dallas Cowboys. Here are three keys keys to a Bengals victory as well as a final-score prediction:

The Cincinnati Bengals have the worst touchdown percentage when entering the red zone. That’ll have to change if they want to come out of the state of Texas with a W.
Both teams are playing well right now and the picking the winner of this game is essentially a coin flip. I’m picking the Bengals to win because they had a few extra days to prepare for this game and clean up their mistakes in the red zone after a victory over the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football.
