The Cincinnati Bengals open the season against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. Here are the reasons they will start the season 1-0.

On paper, this appears to be a game against two well-matched teams, with Cincinnati looking to be an improvement this year, and Minnesota trying to not slip for the second year in a row. Both teams have some question marks, but plenty of good players in key positions that could allow the teams to push for a wild card playoff spot.

Cincinnati has been bad the last few years. Because of that, most analysts are leaning towards a Viking win, however, I am here to tell you that the Bengals are going to win on Sunday.

This would be a huge way to start the season and allow Cincinnati a chance to make a solid run through the beginning portion of their season. The Bengals need to win these types of toss-up games to try to compete in the AFC North. Here are the top five reasons that Cincinnati wins.

Joe Burrow is going to be a huge reason the Cincinnati Bengals can pull off a win.

There has been a lot said about Joe Burrow early in the offseason this year. Questions about his ability to make it back from injury and be the same type of quarterback he was at the beginning of last year. Burrow is viewed as a boom-or-bust type player this year depending on your thoughts about his mental recovery.

This is the game Burrow announces that he is back and better than normal.

Burrow might have a rough quarter or two, but he will come alive as soon as he gets hit. Once he gets the feel back of what being hit feels like, he is going to get in a rhythm and lead several great drives.

Without an injury last year, Burrow was top two for Offensive Rookie of the Year, and this year he is going to build on that performance.

Burrow will be the best quarterback on the field on Sunday, and in a league that is ruled by the quarterback position, he will put his team in the best spot to win the game. After this game, Burrow talk will immediately declare Burrow back and one of the best rising quarterbacks in the game.
