Washington Football Team vs. Bengals Week 11 preview, how to watch

We’re past the halfway point, and we’re starting to figure out who the Washington Football Team is.

At 2-7, the Washington Football Team somehow remains in the NFC East, for all mathematical purposes. But at this point, we’ve accepted that the team’s mathematical resilience is not an accurate indicator of its current rebuild state.

Yes, Washington is mathematically still in the playoff race, but it’s tied with the Dallas Cowboys for the worst record in the NFC, and tied with Dallas, the Los Angeles Chargers, and the Houston Texans for the third-worst record in the league. Houston fired their coach. Los Angeles may be nearing that point. Dallas is known to be in disarray.

And then there’s Washington. It’s Ron Rivera’s first year, and working with the mess that was the Washington Football Team, we knew it would take some time for changes to take root. Modest improvements have been seen in some areas, but at some point, those improvements have to translate to wins, at least in winnable games.

Once again this Sunday, Rivera’s Washington Football Team finds itself in a winnable situation against Zac Taylor and the Cincinnati Bengals. Wunderkind rookie Joe Burrow will undoubtedly make life harder for a still mistake-prone defense, but this is the kind of game Rivera’s ideal Washington Football Team comes out of with a victory. Will it happen this time around?

The game kicks off at 1:00 PM EST, and will be broadcast on CBS. It’ll take place in Landover, Maryland, at FedEx Field. If you live in the local area, you can watch on live television, but if not, you can still stream online via either NFL Game Pass or FuboTV. But before you do, make sure you know what to be on the lookout for, and peruse our pregame links.
