2014 Cincinnati Bengals Schedule | Season Handicapping Picks

NFL Football – Bengals Analysis

The Cincinnati Bengals finished the 2013 NFL season 11-5, which was good enough for first place in the AFC North – tied for third in the AFC alongside the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs.

Bengals Odds


Odds to win the 2015 Super Bowl XLIX: 40/1
Odds to win the 2015 AFC Conference: 13/1
Season Win Total: 10 wins

The team lost 27-10 in the wild card round of the postseason to the San Diego Chargers, giving it motivation entering 2014.

Sunday Sept. 7 @ Baltimore – The Bengals have been known for slow starts in the past, and Andy Dalton’s track record in Baltimore should be cause for concern entering this contest. Lucky for Cincinnati, it has two home games immediately following this one.

Sunday, Sept. 14 vs. Atlanta – This one should be a battle of the receivers. Roddy White, Julio Jones, A.J. Green and Marvin Jones should combine for entertainment on each side of the field all game long.

Sunday, Sept. 21 vs. Tennessee – If the Baltimore Ravens give Cincy fits in the season opener, the Atlanta Hawks should help give back a bit of that momentum. Luckily for the Bengals, not much momentum will be needed regardless against the Titans.

BYE WEEK

Sunday, Oct. 5 @ New England – History doesn’t bode well for the Bengals in this one. Cincinnati hasn’t beaten New England on the road since 1986. That’s a long time to go without a win, and the hope is that the streak comes to an end this season.

Sunday, Oct. 12 vs. Carolina – Think back to the 2011 NFL draft. Cam Newton was taken first overall. Andy Dalton was taken in the second round, but became the first quarterback in history to start all 16 games as a rookie after being drafted later than the first round.

Sunday, Oct. 19 @ Indianapolis – The Bengals faced off against the Indianapolis Colts twice last season – once in the regular season, once in the preseason. Cincy won both outings by an average of 15.5 points per contest, but both finished with the same record when it was all said and done.

Sunday, Oct. 26 vs. Baltimore – Week 8 gives the Bengals a chance to see the Baltimore Ravens for the second time this season. The good news is that the contest will be at home – the place where Cincinnati will stay through Week 10.

Sunday, Nov. 2 vs. Jacksonville – Not only are the Bengals in the second of three home games at this point, but they get the Jacksonville Jaguars in the process. Can’t argue with that if you’re rooting for Cincy.

Thursday, Nov. 6 vs. Cleveland – Cleveland may play well against Cincinnati, but it’s a good choice for a Thursday night opponent if you’re a Bengals fan. With all eyes on this one, the pressure is on to get a win.

Sunday, Nov. 16 @ New Orleans – Remember how Cincinnati just played three home games in a row? Those days are done. This one begins a three-game road trip that extends through Week 13.

Sunday, Nov. 23 @ Houston – The Houston Texans have the No. 1 pick in the upcoming draft, meaning the Bengals will get a first-hand look at one of the game’s brightest upcoming stars (most likely).

Don’t expect this group to be star-struck, though, as this is a Texans team that has had the Bengals’ number in the playoffs.

Sunday, Nov. 30 @ Tampa Bay – This may not look like a rivalry from the outside looking in, but tell that to Cincy fans who remember where Michael Johnson and Anthony Collins ended up.

Sunday, Dec. 7 vs. Pittsburgh – Anytime these two face off late in the year, it’s going to be a show. Luckily for fans of the game of football, this is just a preview for what’s to come in the final game of the year.

Dec. 14 @ Cleveland – Last season, Cincinnati defeated Cleveland on the road but lost at home. This time, the team will look to swing both their way, but the road version will have to come just three weeks before the postseason.

Dec. 22 vs. Denver – Super Bowl runner ups. ESPN. The playoffs are looming. Sounds like the making of a classic.

Sunday, Dec. 28 @ Pittsburgh – These two teams have a habit of putting on a show late in the year. The game against Denver will be big with playoff implications most likely on the line, but this one will be heated.

If the last two years are any indication, expect a showdown.
