The Cincinnati Bengals come to Detroit for their first post-lockout preseason game. The speed dating pace of free agency and the rather surreal offseason might leave many with a sense that they are watching the UFL.

It’s the “Who are these guys?” season.

The Bengals crashed hard in 2010 and continued their free-fall in the offseason. The Carson Palmer vs. Mike Brown soap opera has yet to play out to its Kabuki theater-like sad ending.

But the Bengals are showing signs of entering a “new era” under head coach Marvin Lewis. Many wanted Lewis’ head after the train wreck that was the 2010 season.

There is some must-see TV in this game stemming from some compelling storylines, so keep your pencils sharpened. NFL rosters are changing at such a fast pace that a player or two we’ve never heard of could play a prominent role.
