The Cincinnati Bengals' 2023-24 season is one that fans, NFL bettors, and fantasy analysts would rather forget. The disappointing campaign began in training camp when Joe Burrow suffered a calf injury, affecting his performance from the start. As a result, the Bengals lost three of their first four games and failed to cover the spread in any of them. A crushing 27-3 loss to the then one-win Titans in Week 4 served as a wake-up call for the team. Zac Taylor's squad responded by winning and covering the spread in four consecutive games against the Cardinals, Seahawks, 49ers, and Bills, giving fans hope that Burrow and the team were back on track.

However, that optimism was short-lived. In Week 11, during a critical AFC North clash with the Ravens, Burrow injured his throwing wrist late in the first half and had to sit out the remainder of the game. It was later announced that he would undergo surgery and miss the remainder of the season. Despite Jake Browning stepping in and leading the team to wins in four of their last seven games, it wasn't enough to secure a playoff spot, leaving the Bengals on the sidelines while their three division rivals advanced to the postseason. Burrow is reportedly fully recovered from the wrist and calf injuries that hindered his 2023-24 season. Consequently, the online sportsbook sees the Bengals as strong contenders not only to win the AFC North for the third time in four years but also as serious threats to bring the Lombardi Trophy to Cincinnati for the first time in franchise history.

Plagued by injuries on both sides of the ball, the Bengals struggled to resemble the team that had reached the AFC title game in the previous two seasons. Offensively, they had significant issues with their ground game, averaging less than 90 rushing yards per game (No. 31) and only 4.0 yards per carry (No. 20). Consequently, Joe Mixon has moved on to the Houston Texans, with GM Duke Tobin showing confidence in Zack Moss’s performance in Indianapolis by bringing him in as the primary running back. Moss will run behind a completely revamped offensive line anchored by veteran Trent Brown, who comes in from New England, and Orlando Brown. Each will be tasked with protecting and keeping the franchise player upright. Joe Burrow will aim to connect with a formidable receiving corps led by Ja'Marr Chase, who is eager to make up for a lost season in which he still managed over 1,200 receiving yards but caught a career-low seven touchdown passes.

Most bothersome about last year’s result was the negative regression Lou Anarumo’s defense underwent with the unit hardly looking like the game changer that took the field the prior two seasons. After ranking out amongst the league’s best in a number of different stat categories the previous season, the defense fell off a cliff last season with it getting ripped for 375 yards per game (No. 31) and nearly 23 points a game (No. 21). To help remedy the situation, Cincinnati utilized half its ten picks in the NFL Draft on the defensive side of the ball. It also brought Sheldon Rankins in from Houston to help the run defense after the unit was ripped for 126+ yards per game (No. 26) a season ago.

Let's be honest: the Bengals' Super Bowl aspirations hinge on Joe Burrow being under center when the calendar turns to January. Without him, their championship hopes diminish significantly. Fortunately, Burrow is participating in OTA’s and is expected to start in Week 1 when the team faces the Patriots at Paycor Stadium. The Bengals are poised to be strong contenders in the competitive AFC North title race (+164) and are also seen as potential Super Bowl LIX contenders (+1461). Interestingly, their recent fourth-place finish has set them up favorably, with Sharp Football Analysis rating their schedule as the sixth easiest in the league. In contrast, the Ravens, Browns, and Steelers face three of the four toughest schedules. Although nine of the Bengals' 17 regular season games will occur on the road, only five of their 14 opponents are currently favored to make the playoffs according to the online sportsbook. Whether this translates into a successful campaign in the “Queen City” remains to be seen. The groundwork for success has been laid nonetheless. The key will be avoiding significant injuries throughout the 2024-25 NFL season.
