With the schedule now released, we dive into a way too early record prediction for the Cincinnati Bengals’ 2020 season. 

The Cincinnati Bengals have been made aware of their 2020 schedule after the NFL released the slate on Thursday evening.

The team is set to play in two primetime games, both against divisional rivals. The first battle will come early on, as the Bengals travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns in week two. The other? A Monday Night slugfest against their bitter rivals, the Pittsburg Steelers.

Beyond that, there are plenty of other exciting matchups.  A contest between the Redskins and number 2 overall pick, Chase Young, as well as the game against the Dolphins, where Joe Burrow will face off against Tua Tagovailoa, will undoubtedly draw attention.

There are plenty of safeguards built-in, just in case the season can’t start on time. Week one games have the potential to be moved to after week 17. All week two opponents share the same bye week, meaning games can be moved into those slots if needed. Overall, the likelihood that all 16 games get played seems high.
