Week 7 predictions: Bengals at Steelers

The Bengals come off the bye week into the cauldron of Heinz Field and a crucial AFC North match-up – like coming out of hyperspace into an asteroid field. Yes, it’s Steelers week, which conjures up all kinds of emotion and sturm and drang. If the Bengals can win  it means they’re only one game behind in the division, but they extend their winning streak to three. So besides all the peripheral stuff, this is a must-win game. Here’s what the panel says about it. Continue reading

Week 5 Predictions: Bills at Bengals

The Bengals are no longer a winless team after their excellent victory in Cleveland last week, and now attention – and the recovery – turns to an impressive Buffalo Bills team who, after four games, boasts a 3-1 record and sit on top of the AFC East. There’s historical rivalry between these two teams (hello 1988), and the importance of this game on Sunday shouldn’t be underestimated – win again and the Bengals go into the bye week with some momentum, lose and the season may well be over. Here’s what our panel thinks… Continue reading

Week 4 Predictions: Bengals at Browns

Here we go, then, the Battle Of Ohio. With two 0-3 teams contesting the first one of the year, some are already calling this game potentially the worst of the weekend. We think that’s a tad hasty, because both these teams do have talent on either side of the ball. Throw in Hue and Zeitler, and there’s a little extra spice to this one. Our panel’s verdict is in, so what are the scores on the doors? Continue reading

View From The Stands: Bengals At Packers

We’re all about the experience here at Bengals UK; whether it be watching games on laptops in a darkened room every Sunday night, getting together to watch the games with friends or, if we can muster the pennies together, flying over the Atlantic to watch the games in person. Green Bay has always had a mythical air about it, and Our Man In Manchester became Our Man In Wisconsin for the weekend when the Bengals visited Lambeau Field. Our very own Jamie Wroe made the trip to the frozen tundras of the north to report on his experience Stateside, except it wasn’t very frozen. Continue reading

Opinion: A Safe And Steady Descent Through Familiarity

It seems so long ago, 2015. The Bengals started out 9-0 with a roster and coaching staff brimming with elite talent, pundits raving about roster depth and many heaping praise on the Bengals for their proven draft strategy. Yet with September 2017 not even in the books, the Bengals are staring down the barrel at another lost season after a 2016 that produced just five wins. But where did it all go wrong, and why so quickly?

Week 3 predictions: Bengals at Packers

It’s safe to say that a lot has happened since our last predictions post – another poor loss, the sacking of offensive coordinator Ken Zampese, the promotion of Bill Lazor, and numerous rumours of dressing room strife and mutiny, and, of course, Colin Kaepernick. It hasn’t been the greatest week for the club, and a trip up to Wisconsin to face the Packers won’t make things any easier. So, what have our panel got to say about it? Continue reading

Week 2 Predictions: Texans at Bengals

The nightmare happened. Even after seven months of preparation, the Bengals – and Andy Dalton in particular – looked undercooked and out of sync offensively against the Ravens, and the offensive line, especially Bodine and Ogbuehi, looked awful. They need to get back on track against the visiting Texans in this Thursday-night game, because it’s Green Bay away next and we could be staring at an 0-3 record and a long season ahead. The predictions are in, let’s see what’s in store… Continue reading
