With the 2011 NFL schedule being released today, it is only right that we take a good hard look at the Bengals' opponents for the upcoming season, and try and gain an idea of what the outcome of each matchup might be. With no games on Monday or Sunday nights, the networks have already shown how little faith they have in Cincinnati football. We'll have a look at whether they got it right.
Not only will we look at week-by-week cases, but how certain games and their results could likely affect one another.
Also, I'm operating under the impression that Carson Palmer will NOT return in 2011. Another thing to keep in mind is that with so little known about how the Bengals offense will look in 2011, it is really hard to give solid predictions, and I'm sure as we go through the draft, free agency (hopefully!), training camp and the preseason, certain revisions can and will be made.
For now, enjoy my speculative predictions for the Bengals 2011 campaign...
