What to Expect Next Season
In 2024, the Bengals have a roster capable of making a playoff push. They have one of the best defensive lines in the NFL, led by DE Trey Hendrickson. The Bengals' secondary has been better than expected, and the focal points of their offense are still strong.
Receiver Ja'Marr Chase should help keep Cincinnati's offense among the best in the division. Oddsmakers were confident in the Bengals' playoff chances earlier this season due to the offense, but injuries to Joe Burrow and others made things tough for the team to succeed. Luckily, Burrow will be back and healthy in 2024, and the team should always be in the playoff conversation as long as he's available.

Those outside of the Bengals market are able to watch games with an NFL+ subscription or with the NFL Sunday Ticket on YouTube TV.
How to Get Cincinnati Bengals Tickets
You can purchase verified Cincinnati Bengals tickets on the Ticketmaster platform, either by purchasing directly or through the NFL Ticket Exchange, a marketplace where fans can buy fully verified tickets. Other resale site options include StubHub, SeatGeek, and Gametime, among others.
Cincinnati Bengals Stadium
The Cincinnati Bengals play their home games in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio at Paycor Stadium, formerly known as Paul Brown Stadium. The team had previously played at a stadium they shared with the Cincinnati Reds, known as the Cincinnati Riverfront Stadium. However, the Bengals sought a facility of their own, eventually opening the stadium in which they play today. It had formerly been known as Paul Brown Stadium, named for the team's co-founder.
Among the available concessions at Paycor Stadium is Skyline Chili, a hometown favorite and eventual franchise that originated in Cincy. At Skyline Chili, fans can order the restaurant's signature dish — spaghetti topped with chili.
Get to Know the Cincinnati Bengals Team
The Cincinnati Bengals are considered to have one of the better rosters in the NFL ahead of the 2023 season. However, that's largely thanks to their depth on offense, rather than the defense. This offseason, the team lost their two starting safeties between Vonn Bell and Jessie Bates III, which could make an already suspect secondary unit all the weaker.
2023 Cincinnati Bengals Head Coach and Front Office
- Director of player personnel: Duke Tobin
- Head coach: Zac Taylor
- Coach record: 33-41-1
In 2023, coach Zac Taylor will return for his fifth season with the team, entering the year with a 28-36-1 overall record. He had a dreadful start in his tenure as the team's head coach, having led the team to a 6-25-1 overall record in his first two seasons. Since that start, Taylor has led the team to a 22-11 regular season record.
Technically, the Bengals do not actually have an appointed general manager. Instead, the Bengals have employed a director of player personnel, with executive Duke Tobin having held the position since 1999. Tobin often performs duties that are similar to the day-to-day responsibilities of a team's general manager, so he's often referred to as the team's GM, even though he doesn't hold the title.
2023 Cincinnati Bengals Offense
The Cincinnati Bengals offense was among the most lethal in the NFL in 2022 and should be able to continue that well into the future. Despite Joe Burrow's preseason calf injury, he did bounce back prior to a season-ending wrist ligament tear. Burrow is expected to make a full recovery and signed a five-year extension this past offseason, worth $275 million. Burrow ranked No. 3 overall on the NFL's Top 100 List ahead of 2023, only behind Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (No. 1) and Bills QB Josh Allen (No. 2).
Aiding Burrow's continued rise in stardom is a lethal duo of receivers. Ja'Marr Chase was the 2021 AP Offensive Rookie of the Year and has continued to blossom into one of the best receivers in the NFL. As for Tee Higgins, he would be a No. 1 wide out on most teams and is a free agent this upcoming offseason. His future with the organization is unknown, whether that be leaving, re-signing or being tagged. The Bengals also added Charlie Jones in the draft and have Trenton Irwin as a safety net at receiver. Returning for his seventh season with the team will be RB Joe Mixon, who restructured his contract to continue to be a focal part of this team.
The Bengals offensive line should also look to take a step forward in 2023, particularly after the acquisition of former Chiefs LT Orlando Brown Jr. The team has generally struggled to protect Burrow so far in his career, so the having an anchor like Brown could be a difference-maker protecting the blind side.
2023 Cincinnati Bengals Defense
Staples of the defense, especially given the team's questions in the secondary, will be on the defensive line. Defensive ends Trey Hendrickson and Sam Hubbard have combined for 51.5 sacks over the last three seasons, and should continue to pressure opposing quarterbacks in the year to come as long as they remain healthy. Linebacker Germaine Pratt will also return, having finished 2022 with career-highs in tackles, tackles for loss, and interceptions in 2023. LB Logan Wilson is also coming off the best (and third) season of his career, notching a career-high in tackles and sacks. The linebacker duo will be in Cincinnati for the long-term future, both being extended or re-signing this past offseason.
Unfortunately for the Bengals defense, the team lost their two starting safeties in free agency, between Vonn Bell and Jessie Bates III. Starting in their places will likely be Dax Hill and Nick Scott at strong safety and free safety, respectively. Jordan Battle could take Scott's spot by the end of the year and looks like a star in the making for Cincinnati. Cam Taylor-Britt has erupted as the team's best cornerback. The 2022 second-round pick has dealt with injuries but should continue to shine moving forward. Rookie CBs D.J. Turner II and D.J. Ivey could both have an opportunity to break into the rotation, too, with plenty of talent in this new-look cornerbacks room.
