This afternoon the Bengals face the Ravens in the team’s first game of the season.  The Bengals need to get off to a hot start this season.  The team has five home games and their bye week within the first half of the season, so get off on the right foot may be vital towards to season’s success; the team went 8-0 at home last year, but only 3-5 on the road.  If the Bengals can steal a road win in the first week against a divisional opponent, that would certainly qualify as a great start to the season.

The Bengals and Ravens split home games last year, yet the Bengals still won the division.  The Bengals will face a tougher schedule this year, so they made need to do better this year.  The Ravens will not be easy though after making improvements during this off-season.  But the Bengals have to and look poised to take another step towards success this year.  For more analysis of the Bengals upcoming game, see Stripe Hype’s game preview.
