The first half of the season should not be overlooked, however, Cleveland is always a tough competitor, RGIII could surprise quite a few people, and the Dolphins and Jaguars are hoping to be a spoiler to many teams. The second half of the season, however, will show this team’s heart.

How will Andy Dalton fair against the Steelers and Ravens this year? Will Geno Atkins and the rest of the defensive front be able to get to Peyton Manning? How will Andrew Whitworth look against one of the best pass rushing defensive line in the Eagles? There are so many questions, but yet will definitely be fun to watch. The Bengals have a great chance to take a step forward this year, and Marvin Lewis wants them to remember their destination, New Orleans. This whole season will be a test for Dalton and the rest of the young Bengals, but if the Bengals prove this year that they are contender, they will be one for years to come.
