Stephen Nover's NFL Preseason Total of the Month - 14-4-1 NFL Totals Streak!
(NFL) Miami vs. Cincinnati, 08/29/2021 4:00 PM, Score: 29 - 26
Total: 36.00 | -103.00 Under
Result: Loss
No Tua Tagovailoa. Joe Burrow is going to play. But the Bengals aren't going to do anything to put him in harm's way. Burrow hasn't played since suffering a torn ACL in Week 11 of last season. Burrow probably will play just a series or two and the Bengals won't let him be aggressive. 

This puts the backup QB's into play. Miami has Jacoby Brissett and Reid Sinnett. Brissett is one of the better backups in the league. But because of that, Miami may give an extended look to Sinnett. 

Cincinnati's backup QB's are Brandon Allen and Kyle Shurmer. The Bengals are averaging 16 points in their two preseason games. They have not solved their offensive line woes. 

Neither team wants to show much during this final and meaningless exhibition.
