Cincinnati Bengals: 2010 – 2011 Regular Season Schedule
2009 was a great season for the Bengals as they went undefeated in their own division. This year, teams in their schedule will know what they are all about and should be prepared for they style of play.
Below we have the Bengals 2010 -2011 regular season schedule for you to view as we inch closer to the beginning of the NFL season. We also have the fantasy relevant players for Cincinnati, and a breakdown for all NFL teams in schedule strength in win/loss, against the pass, run and points.
Strength of Schedules
The Bengals found a way to win football games with Cedric Benson running and Carson Palmer hooking up with Chad Ochocinco. While it was nice to see the Bengals perform well, it’s going to take more than Ochocinco in the passing game to win the division again.
Both the Ravens and Steelers had somewhat down season in 2009, and I don’t expect that to happen this year. If the Bengals are going to win double digit games, new addition Antonio Bryant and others need to step up.
Hopefully, Palmer is ready to return to his old form this season after some question his health late in the ’09 season.
Continuing To Mature
I have no doubts that the Bengals line backing core will continue to mature in 2010. They are loaded with talent in that area and their defensive line is under rated.
My only concern is that I’m not sure the secondary can repeat it’s strong play from a year ago. If Leon Hall and Jonathan Joseph can play like they did a year ago, it will greatly help this teams odds of finding the playoffs.
