The Cincinnati Bengals find themselves in an AFC North division that is bound to make at least one of these three bold predictions come true.

The AFC North has long been known as one of the better divisions in the NFL. Commonly marketed for their toughness, the Pittsburg Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, and of course, the Cincinnati Bengals, provide fans with some of the best rivalries and thrilling matchups.

That statement may not hold any more weight than it does for the upcoming 2020 campaign. The four pillars of the North look to be as strong as ever.

The Ravens return after a disappointing end to what looked to be a promising season. With reigning MVP Lamar Jackson on their side along with the newly acquired Calais Campbell, they look to finish what they started a year ago.

The Steelers get Ben Roethlisberger back from injury to pair him with their young and talented defense, led by Minkah Fitzpatrick. They look to continue their long history of success.

The Browns will welcome yet another coaching regime by the time next season rolls around. The roster looks like it’s capable of breaking the chains of recent disappointment to keep this staff around for more than a year or two.

The Bengals look to get back off the mat after finding themselves in the division’s cellar a year ago. The sting of a 2-14 season still fresh in their minds, they look to pair their plethora of new additions with long time veterans to silence the critics.
