Inside the Schedule

If the Bengals want to qualify for the playoffs for the third consecutive year, they better protect their home field. Marvin Lewis' team has a killer home schedule, with showdowns against the Packers, Patriots, Colts, Vikings and Ravens, all playoff teams from a year ago. The Bengals' schedule softens nicely in October with four consecutive opponents that finished with 10 or more losses in 2012.
Key Game
Week 9 at Dolphins
We love this matchup, Bengals on the road against the reloaded Dolphins on Halloween night. Two overlooked AFC teams trying to earn some respect. Also a nice snapshot of two young quarterbacks who will be facing significant expectations. Don't be surprised if this game ends up having tiebreaker ramifications come January.
