Cincinnati Bengals schedule: Joe Burrow heads back to drawing board

2023 Cincinnati Bengals schedule: Offseason

The 2022-23 season is over for the Cincinnati Bengals, but we’d be hard-pressed to say it wasn’t another successful year. Reaching the AFC Championship is no small feat, especially for a Bengals franchise that has struggled in the postseason for so long. While it hurts now, know that a top-notch offense led by Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase is set to return to enact more vengeance on their opponents in 2023.

Cincinnati Bengals roster outlook

The Cincinnati Bengals didn’t want to do too much to drastically alter their roster after coming close to their first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. But Zac Taylor’s squad did manage to make some crucial improvements which should help them repeat as AFC North champions despite being in an ever-so-competitive division.

A new right side of the offensive line should help Joe Burrow stay upright, preventing more bad sacks. With all the star talent at their skill positions, the Bengals should easily return to being a top-10 offense and could even compete to be the highest-scoring offensive attack in football.

Additions in the secondary, including first-round defensive back Daxton Hill should go a long way toward shoring up the pass defense, while taking pressure off the front seven. Now that they’re better prepared to get stops and should have an even more efficient offense, the sky is truly the limit for the Bengals in 2022.

Cincinnati Bengals schedule prediction: 10-7

Just because the Bengals squeaked away as division leaders a year ago, it doesn’t mean things will be as simple to start 2022. Each of the four teams could reasonably reach the playoffs, but the Bengals’ confidence is at an all-time high. There’s no reason to believe Ja’Marr Chase can’t still run past everyone in his second season.

The toughest games on the schedule are the same as they are every year for AFC North opponents. Whoever wins the inner-division battles likely takes the crown.
