Bengals 2021 Schedule Analysis
The Bengals essentially have a tough schedule every season due to playing in the AFC North. Considering the Browns are a playoff team nowadays, they will have six tough games a season for the foreseeable future.
Outside of the division, the Bengals will have their work cut out for them. They face off against the Packers, Chiefs, 49ers and Chargers, to name a few. No game in the NFL is easy, but those are some extremely tough matchups, against some star studded rosters.
Bengals Prime Time Games
The Bengals lone prime time game will be at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night for week 4. This is an intriguing game, and fans all over will tune in to see Trevor Lawrence and Joe Burrow go toe-to-toe. This will also be Urban Meyer’s debut on primetime in the NFL.
It is somewhat disappointing to see the Bengals only have one primetime game this season, but it is to be expected. If they can win some games early on, they could easily get flexed to a prime time slot at any point throughout the season.
This year will be unlike any other for the NFL. This will be the first season consisting of 17 regular season games for every team, and fans will most likely be back in the seats after a year off. Tickets will be in high demand this season, and stadiums will be as loud as ever.
The schedule release allows fans to argue and predict how many games their favorite team will win for the next four months. It will take awhile for fans to get acclimated to saying their team will go 9-8 or 10-7, but that extra game is exciting nonetheless.
