Most lines have us around 13 point underdogs for this one. I haven't read any reports speculating about Stafford or Calvin playing. One thing I've noticed about the Bengals is that they tend to play down to their opponents. This one may be closer then we would think.
Ochocinco and Delmas are starting up some trash talk
"I want a name," said Ochocinco, who has given himself enough nicknames -- he legally changed his name from Chad Johnson a year ago -- to last several careers. "They call him Megatron. So I want a name, too. Like Ochotron."
As for Lions rookie safety Louis Delmas, who on Tuesday said he was preparing for some verbal warfare on the field Sunday?
"Come on," Ochocinco said. "Tell him to sit down. Don't do that. Don't do that. Because he's gonna end up having a bad day. You're not gonna beat me at my game."
I think the Lions cover even if Culpepper starts. 24-14 Bengals.
