Is it ever too early for score predictions? Yes it is. Is it too early to make score predictions for the Bengals’ 2013 season? Probably.

The real question is, will that stop me from doing it?

Most definitely not.

A few days ago, I released my brief game breakdowns for the 2013 schedule. However, the piece failed to actually predict scores, and as I know how we football fans love numbers, I shall oblige with a set of score predictions – how ever far off they may be.
Week 1: Bengals 23, Bears 16

Week 2: Bengals 20, Steelers 17

Week 3: Bengals 24, Packers 26

Week 4: Bengals 27, Browns 17

Week 5: Bengals 21, Packers 28

Week 6: Bengals 31, Bills 13

Week 7: Bengals 24, Lions 19

Week 8: Bengals 23, Jets 14

Week 9: Bengals 23, Dolphins 19

Week 10: Bengals 21, Ravens 26

Week 11: Bengals 24, Browns 16

Week 12: BYE Week

Week 13: Bengals 20, Chargers 14

Week 14: Bengals 24, Colts 19

Week 15: Bengals 15, Steelers 19

Week 16: Bengals 23, Vikings 24

Week 17: Bengals 24, Ravens 21

Numbers are a funny thing in the NFL. Especially score predictions. Really, if I get more than one of these right, it’s more luck than anything.

Yet I know how often I look up score predictions. And hopefully you had as much fun reading as I had creating them in the waning hours of last night.
