Bengals (3-4-1) at Giants (5-3)

7:30 p.m. Monday, ESPN

Line: Bengals by 1

Fortunes can change quickly in the NFL, as is the case for New York. The Giants have rebounded from a three-game losing streak with consecutive wins and now sit in the driver’s seat of an NFC wild-card race that figures to be crowded. In their way of a third consecutive win is Cincinnati, who has yet to win against a team that currently has a winning record. A Bengals win would give the team momentum in a weak AFC North.
