32. Cincinnati Bengals (1-13)
Recap: For those Bengals fans hoping for the best draft pick possible in 2020, the game with the Patriots got a little scary with Cincy jumping out to a 10-7 lead in the first quarter. However, reality set in soon after and the Pats rolled the rest of the way to hand the Bengals their league-worst 13th loss of the season.
Outlook: Cincinnati’s prospects of getting the No. 1 overall pick in 2020 were helped with their loss and the Giants’ third win of the season. A loss by the Bengals in either of their last two games will clinch them getting Joe Burrow. The Bengals will play a road game against the Dolphins in Week 16.
31. Miami Dolphins (3-11)
Recap: The Dolphins might have been the last victim of Eli Manning after the veteran quarterback, who is almost assuredly leaving New York after this season and might have played his last game on Sunday, led the Giants to a 36-20 win over the Dolphins in Week 15.
Outlook: The good news here is that a loss moved the Dolphins one step closer to the No. 2 overall pick, as both they and the Giants now have an even record (New York has the tiebreaker for the higher pick right now). Miami needs more losses to improve their draft position, which could be hard to come by next week against the Bengals.
