Cincinnati Bengals Schedule 2020 Cincinnati Bengals Schedule

2-7-1, 4th AFC North

vs NYG

6:00 pm GMT , 11/29

Joe Burrow will likely be starting from Week 1 on for the Bengals this season, but a matchup with the Chargers stacked defense isn’t a great way to start, even at home. A short week road game against the Browns followed by a road date with the Eagles’ stacked roster isn’t too promising either. Matchups at the Ravens and Colts as well as a home game against the Titans could leave the Bengals in a tough spot heading into their Week 9 bye. A 3-week stretch from Week 11-13 with games against the Redskins, Giants, and Dolphins should be pretty manageable, but Weeks 14-17 get pretty tough. That stretch features 3/4 playoff teams in the Cowboys, Texans, and Ravens, as well as the Steelers who should be much improved with the highly-anticipated return of Ben Roethlisberger. The AFC North as a whole has among the lighter strength of schedules in the NFL, as the AFC East is likely to be the worst division in the league and the NFC East was brutal last year. Joe Burrow will bring some much-needed excitement to Cincinnati, but I don’t see the Bengals going better than 6-10 with this schedule.
