The Bengals kick off their preseason campaign tonight as they play host to the New York Jets. While Bengals fans will be eager to see how Andy Dalton and A.J. Green have benefited from an offseason to improve, the main focus will likely center on Tim Tebow and whether or not the Jets break out in a mass brawl.
Following the playoff loss in Houston, the Bengals have made a number of moves to address their holes, and this evening will be the first chance to see if they have done enough.
With Andy Dalton & Co. likely to be featured only in the first quarter, Friday night's contest will also prove to be a valuable opportunity to analyse the 'nearly men' in their ongoing pursuit of roster spots.
With that in mind, here are some of the main storylines to watch in this game.
