Multiple close calls, last-second field goals, and mishaps, the Detroit Lions are one-third of the way through the 2021 campaign winless. When they meet a reformed Cincinnati Bengals in Detroit on Sunday, they will try and turn things around.
The Lions are now 0-5 for the first time since 2015 after a 54-yard field goal from Greg Joseph sealed rematching of the Minnesota Vikings with squandering 98 yards. Detroit became the first team in NFL history to lose two games on 50-plus yard field goals at the buzzer in the same season. If the Lions want to break the wick, their offense must be able to work with the Bengals' attack, and the Jared Goff-TJ Hockenson connection must work all the time.

Even though the Bengals lost in a very strange overtime game against the Green Bay Packers last week, they have certainly shown tremendous improvement from the previous couple of seasons and are regarded as if they are going to be tough in the AFC North. Joe Burrow, a second-year quarterback, has thrown for over 250 yards twice this season, ranking him 11th in the league in touchdown passes with 11.
Cincy has won nine straight victories over the Lions in the first 12 meetings between the two teams, dating back to their first meeting in 1970.
