Inside the Schedule

The schedule-makers believe that Andy Dalton and the Bengals will stay a contender in the AFC North. Handed three nationally televised games against the Patriots, Browns and Broncos, Cincy has a chance to show that it's destined for more than just another depressing, first-round playoff loss.

Key Games

Week 5, at Patriots: People forget that the Bengals muzzled Tom Brady and handed New England a loss last season. Doing the same on "Sunday Night Football" would turn heads.

Week 6, vs. Panthers: Coming one week after the Patriots tilt, this homer against Carolina is nestled within a crucial four-game stretch that also includes the Colts and Ravens.

Week 14,vs. Steelers: The Bengals play Pittsburgh twice over the final four weeks of the schedule. Facing the Steelers at Heinz Field in the season finale is a tall order, making this Week 14 showdown a must-win affair.
