Week 5: @ Baltimore Ravens

The Bengals were embarrassed by the Ravens in their second matchup of 2019. They’ve made the necessary moves to avoid a repeat of last year but Baltimore also had a very strong offseason. With the reigning league MVP on their side, it’s a tough ask to come away with a win, especially on their turf.

Prediction: Loss, 1-4

Week 6: @ Indianapolis Colts

This could be a turning point for the Bengals. Six weeks in means the new members in stripes will have had plenty of time to get used to the new system and adapt. Plus, the schedule looks much easier from here on out. The Colts will be a challenge, especially with Philip Rivers leading the way, but the Bengals can get it done.

Prediction: Win, 2-4

Week 7: vs. Cleveland Browns

The Bengals go on their first winning streak of the year. The Browns will always find a way to be the Browns, no matter how talented they look on paper. Don’t be surprised if Cincinnati secures the victory here and takes control of the battle of Ohio for the foreseeable future.

Prediction: Win, 3-4

Week 8: vs. Tennessee Titans

The Titans surprised everybody last year by making a run all the way to the AFC championship game. It’ll be hard to stop Tennessee, considering how well-coached they are. The Bengals are setting themselves up to win these types of games in the future, but for right now, it’ll be difficult to pull it off.

Prediction: Loss, 3-5
