Cincinnati Bengals Schedule
The Cincinnati Bengals are ready to take to the gridiron this season and beat their
opponents into submission. The Bengals are coming off a fine 2013 season that saw them win the NFC North division title. The
Bengals have a lot of talent on both sides of the ball, and they look like a good bet to win the division for a second consecutive
season. Cincinnati will have to win some big games at home to make that happen, but they showed last season that are totally
capable of making it happen.
The Bengals have a big game on their hands on October 12th when the Carolina Panthers visit.
The Panthers won the NFC South last season and have an emerging star quarterback in Cam Newton, Newton can beat a defense
with his arm or his legs, making the defense adjust to him each and every play. The Bengals are going to have to neutralize
Newton, and by blanketing a wide receiving corps that lacks a true standout they could do just that. This should be a great
game to see in person, and the stands are sure to be packed for this contest.
Cincinnati will take on the Denver Broncos
on December 22nd for what could very well end up being their biggest challenge of the season. The Broncos won the AFC Championship
last season and will be the favorite to do so in 2014. With Peyton Manning under center, this Denver offense is one to be
feared, and the Cincy defense is going to have their hands full in this contest. This is the final home game of the season
for the Bengals, but there are plenty of other great games leading up to this one.
Cincinnati Bengals Team Info
Cincinnati Bengals are a well-rounded team that can beat opponents in a variety of ways. The Bengals boast a very good passing
attack, headlined by talented wide receiver AJ Green. Green is considered to be one of the best at his position in the game,
as he's the whole package when it comes to a wideout. Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton had an up-and-down campaign last
season but he's done enough to net the Bengals victories on a regular basis since coming into the league. Defensively, the
Bengals are having a fine season, and it should continue to be just that if this team can keep their momentum going down the
stretch as they head toward the postseason. The running game will be a key for the Bengals this season, and they've got two
exciting, young runners in Gio Bernard and Jeremy Hill. These two backs should complement each other nicely, as Bernard is
an elusive runner that can also catch the ball out of the backfield while Hill is more of a between the tackles kind of runner
that can churn out yardage between the tackles. The Bengals won the AFC North last season, a feat that they're looking to
repeat in 2014.
The NFL is the most popular sports league in the country for a reason,
and it definitely isn't because there is a lack of excitement from game to game and season to season as the Bengals look to
make their move up the AFC North standings. These are some of the best athletes in the world, and people love to see them
in action live and in person. There is nothing like being there when the home team takes the lead late in the game thanks
to a long touchdown run or pass. You'll be hooked once you experience the roar of the crowd when the victory is in hand. It's
incredible to be there in person for a great matchup, and the Cincinnati Bengals will be involved in plenty of intriguing
contests this season.
Cincinnati Bengals Trivia
Did you know that Paul Brown won back-to-back Coach of
the Year awards back in 1969 and 1970?
Yup, the guy who eventually had the stadium named after him was the best of the
best back in the late 1960s and the early 1970s, leading the Bengals to one of their brightest spots in franchise history
and laying the groundwork for a team that seems to only get more and more popular. Fans also might know that Brown was also
the original coach of the Cleveland Browns, lending him his name to the franchise. When you have a franchise and a football
stadium named after you, you're kind of a big deal, which is why the name Paul Brown still has quite the weight around NFL
Cincinnati Bengals History
The first Cincinnati Bengals team was formed in 1937 with the American
Football League, but the folding of the first AFL led to the Bengals joining other leagues until shutting down before the
start of World War II. The Bengals started up again in 1967 and have had some memorable seasons since then, though these days
fans are clamoring because they can see the writing on the wall, mainly that the Bengals are a team that has a very bright
future ahead of them.
