2023 Bengals Team Projections

The Cincinnati Bengals win total is projected around 10.5 wins at most sportsbooks in Ohio. Using the win totals available across multiple betting sites, the Bengals are projected to go 11-5, which is one less win than the 2022 campaign.

What to Expect this Season

Despite the injury to starting quarterback Joe Burrow, the team is on a solid trajectory to make the NFL playoffs for the third consecutive season, as long as he rehabs effectively. Oddsmakers appear confident in the Bengals playoff chances, with their -255 odds to make the postseason translating to a 71.8% chance based on implied probability. While we can expect continued success on offense, their biggest liability might just be the secondary, where they'll have two new starting safeties amidst a relatively unproven cornerbacks room.

The Cincinnati Bengals are coming off a 12-4 season that resulted in an AFC North title and their second consecutive appearance in the AFC Championship Game. As the team enjoys the current trajectory of starting QB Joe Burrow, Bengals fans had a lot of hope that this could be the year they go home with their first Bengals Super Bowl win. However, an injury to starting quarterback Joe Burrow early in the team's 2023 training camp session could unfortunately set them up for a slow start.

Luckily for the offense, the Bengals organization has maintained a lot of stability from 2022 on through the 2023 NFL season. Not only did they keep their coaching staff intact with coach Zac Taylor, but they also retained offensive coordinator Brian Callahan, who is entering his fifth season with the team. The core of offensive playmakers, including QB Joe Burrow, running back Joe Mixon, and receivers Ja'Marr Chase, Tee Higgins, and Tyler Boyd, are all set to return. Luckily for the Bengals, Mixon accepted a pay cut this offseason (approximately $3 million), having previously been speculated as a potential cap casualty as the team works on a long-term (and likely market-setting) extension for Burrow.

This offseason, Cincinnati added some depth at receiver, selecting Charlie Jones (Purdue), who figures as the team's future slot receiver if all goes right, while also signing veteran tight end Irv Smith Jr. Perhaps the most valuable offseason addition of all was left tackle Orlando Brown Jr., who signed to a four-year, $64.09 million deal in hopes that he could change the trajectory of this offensive line. The key to keeping Burrow healthy will be keeping him upright, having taken a total of 153 sacks so far in his three-year career โ€” the most of any quarterback in the league by a 13-sack margin.

Unfortunately, with those additions came a number of losses. The most notable of the Bengals losses came on defense, as they lost safeties Vonn Bell and Jessie Bates III in free agency, who signed with the Panthers and Falcons, respectively. After ranking seventh among NFL teams in PFF coverage grade, it stands to reason the secondary may suffer this year. Other departures include backup RB Samaje Perine (to the Broncos), TE Hayden Hurst (Panthers) and backup QB Brandon Allen (49ers).

How to Watch the Cincinnati Bengals

There are several ways to watch the Cincinnati Bengals each week. For those local to Cincinnati, you can check the broadcast schedule here, with in-market games airing on either CBS or Fox. 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 โ€” 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: 28-36-1

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 are among the NFL's top offenses ahead of the 2023 NFL season, with quarterback Joe Burrow ahead of it all. Burrow suffered a calf injury early in the Bengals' 2023 training camp session, so it still remains a possibility, pending his rehab, that he could end up missing time in the regular season. 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).

Helping Burrow in his quest to win his first MVP award are WRs Ja'Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, considered one of the best wide receiver duos in the league. Their receiving depth, between assets Tyler Boyd, and prospective role players Trenton Irwin and rookie Charlie Jones (if healthy), could be all he needs to succeed. Returning for his seventh season with the team will be RB Joe Mixon, who ranks eighth among active running backs with 5,378 career rushing yards and 11th with 40 career rushing touchdowns.

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.

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. Cornerback Mike Hilton remains the likely the anchor of this secondary ahead of 2023, with Chidobe Awuzie and Cam Taylor-Britt likely set to start. 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.
