2006 NFL Projection:
Palmer looks to get back on track with the Bengals high powered offense after a most untimely injury. The Bengals may find the going not so easy in 2006 with a schedule that includes seven games versus teams that accomplished one or more of the following feats in at least one of the most recent 3 seasons; won the Super Bowl, played in the Super Bowl, or played in the conference championship game. That translates to the following games…

As a result, qualifying for the playoffs in 2006 could be on the difficult side, even for this 2005 breakout team.

If the defense can give up substantially fewer points compared to last season, then the Bengals should surely stay above the bubble and make the playoffs again in 2006.

Cincinnati Bengals 2006 NFL Predictions

Week 1
Sep 10
@Kansas City Loss Projected – Would be a solid win for either team. While many eyes will be on Palmer, the Chiefs ground game could be too much for a defense that surrendered 350 points in 2005.
Week 2
Sep 17
Cleveland Win Projected – An absolute must win game. Imagine starting the season 0-2 with the next five games coming against the Steelers, the Patriots, the Buccaneers, the Panthers, and the Falcons in what amounts to one of the toughest five game stretches any team in the league will face in 2006… Would it be out of the realm of possibility for the Bengals to lose all of these games? Would it be out of the realm of possibility for the Bengals to win all five? The defense needs to step up.
Week 3
Sep 24
@Pittsburgh Loss Projected – An attempt at early season revenge for last season’s playoff loss and untimely injury to their star quarterback. However, revenge may have to wait until later in the season home at Paul Brown stadium as the Steelers should be well positioned to bring a maximum effort of their own with their bye on deck.
Week 4
Oct 1
New England Win Projected – Will likely need the classic all out effort before the bye Week to come away with a victory versus the Patriots.
Week 5
Oct 8
BYE 2-2 at the bye if these preseason predictions for the 2006 Cincinnati Bengals hold up. The record could be acceptable considering three of the first four games are @Kansas City, @Pittsburgh, and home to New England.
Week 6
Oct 15
@Tampa Bay Loss Projected – Can’t afford to be rusty after the bye when heading down to hot Florida to face the Buccaneers.
Week 7
Oct 22
Carolina Win Projected – Fourth top team in a row. Might need to win just to attain .500.
Week 8
Oct 29
Atlanta Win Projected – A must win game. Catching a dome team out of their element should help.
Week 9
Nov 5
@Baltimore Loss Projected – Another sweep of the Ravens may be necessary to make the playoffs in 2006. But this season the Ravens will be sporting Steve McNair at QB.
Week 10
Nov 12
San Diego Win Projected – How will the Chargers fair with a new starting quarterback at the helm? Maybe just as well? Maybe not as well? Perhaps better? This preseason prediction leans to the home team as it is unknown whether the “Rivers” will flow.
Week 11
Nov 19
@New Orleans Win Projected – In the middle of a stretch of winnable games. And facing another team with a new starting QB. The Saints offense could be jelling at this point under Brees making this game no easy pickings. Possible game headline: The battle of the quick healers.
Week 12
Nov 26
@Cleveland Win Projected – Sweeping the Browns is likely to be a must with this tough schedule.
Week 13
Nov 30
Baltimore Win Projected – Thursday night football matchup could find the Bengals playing for a split.
Week 14
Dec 10
Oakland Win Projected – Remember the early season must win game in week 2 versus the Browns? Look ahead to the final three games on the schedule. It would be a waste of time to try to convince anyone who follows the NFL that this won’t be a must win game for the Bengals.
Week 15
Dec 18
@Indianapolis Loss Projected – Last year’s meeting was a fest of offense. This Monday night football matchup should be a repeat performance with a playoff spot on the line to boot.
Week 16
Dec 24
@Denver Loss Projected – If these preseason predictions hold up, standing at 9-5 means the Bengals may need to win the final two. Unfortunately, winning in Denver on a short week is one of the tougher things to do in the NFL.
Week 17
Dec 31
Pittsburgh Win Projected – Even if no postseason trip is ahead, revenge would still be sweet.
