The Cincinnati Bengals last faced the Oakland Raiders in week 12 of the 2012 season, when the Raiders visited Paul Brown Stadium. Andy Dalton will lead the Bengals into the Black Hole in hopes to starting their regular season with a win. In fact, the Bengals have not had a regular season win against the Raiders in Oakland. Their last road win against the Raiders came when they were still the Los Angeles in 1988.
Hue Jackson will be returning to Oakland for the first time since he was removed from his head coaching duties at the end of the 2011 season. It was a move that Jackson admitted to being “hard” according to Coley Harvey at ESPN.com. Dalton got the better of Oakland in his only game against the Raiders, beating them 34 to 10. He is 5-2 overall, including 3-1 road record, against the AFC West since entering the league in 2011.
The Bengals are 2-3 in week one road games over the last five seasons. They will need a good start to conquer one of the toughest schedules they have faced in recent franchise history. There is a lot on the line this season for quarterback Andy Dalton and head coach Marvin Lewis. The only question remains, can they overcome the weight on their shoulders? We will just have to sit back and watch.
