And with the Green Bay Packers coming to town looking like they’ll once again contend for a Super Bowl title, it’s very easy to see the Bengals traveling to Cleveland with a 1-2 record and needing a win in the worst way with the New England Patriots waiting in the wings the following week.

Remember, since Tom Brady became the Pats’ starting QB, Cincinnati has never defeated them.

So assuming the Bengals can at least win Round 1 of the Battle of Ohio, they shouldn’t be looking at anything worse than a 2-3 record after five games before hitting a much easier stretch of games against the Buffalo Bills, Detroit Lions and New York Jets.
