8. Mark Andrews could debut, make it three consecutive games with 85+ yards and TD vs. Cincinnati

After missing Week 1 with a quad injury, Andrews could finally make his 2023 debut this weekend in a divisional clash against the AFC North favorites Cincinnati Bengals. That's still far from being set in stone, but Andrews is inching closer to that moment.

If Andrews is out there, he will be in a position to do something glorious: bash the Bengals defense with his third consecutive 8+ receptions, 85+ yards, 1+ TD game against Cincy.

Last season, Andrews caught 8-of-10 passes for 89 yards and a score. In 2021 he went for another 8-of-10 racking up 125 yards and another touchdown.

The Bengals seemed to have come up with a solution for Andrews after he scored touchdowns in back-to-back years (2019 and 2020) limiting him to just three receptions, 48 yards, and no touchdowns in 2021, but it turns out that was just a fluke.
