How is the Bengals 2023 opponents determined?
The Bengals finished first in their respective division so they'll face the first-place teams from the AFC as well as the entire AFC South, NFC West, and the first-place finisher from the NFC North, which in this case is the Vikings.
The 17-game schedule began in 2021 and the AFC received an extra home game that year and then the NFC received an extra home game in 2022. That means since it's an odd-numbered year, the AFC gets the extra game.
