Bengals 2023 schedule could lead to third straight division title

The Cincinnati Bengals have established themselves as one of the NFL’s elite teams and the ultimate prize is well within reach. The Bengals are 22-11 over the last two seasons with back-to-back AFC North crowns and are the favorites to win the division again. At this point, the Bengals are building to beat the Bills and Chiefs, not the Browns, Ravens, and Steelers. With virtually the same core intact and a pretty fair schedule, the Bengals should get another crack at the Lombardi Trophy when the month of January rolls around.

Cincinnati Bengals schedule this year

The Bengals do have an increased degree of difficulty relative to their AFC North peers by virtue of having a first-place schedule. Along with games against division foes, the AFC South, and the NFC West, the Bengals draw the Chiefs, Bills, and Vikings among the league’s other division winners. Road tilts against Jacksonville and San Francisco give the Bengals five division winners from last season and three of them are on the road.

The Bengals only play back-to-back road games twice and play close to home in the first of the two in each case, so their travel schedule is actually very favorable. While they are not all big favorite roles, the Bengals are favored in 15 of their 17 games per the DraftKings early odds.
