With half of the preseason over, the Bengals have given fans reasons to be optimistic heading into the upcoming season. They’ve displayed several encouraging signs that contrast some of last year’s shortcomings and have shown consistency in areas where they were effective in 2013. These signs should lead fans towards believing in this team heading into 2014, but that doesn’t mean the team is ready to go for the upcoming season.
Tomorrow the Bengals will be facing the Arizona Cardinals in the team’s third game of the preseason. Heading into game, there are still several roster situations that need to be decided upon. These roster “question marks” give players the opportunity to seize the moment and earn a role within this team. Several players will have that opportunity tomorrow, so fans should pay special attention to a few situations during tomorrow’s game.
