The Cincinnati Bengals have a tough road ahead of them in their quest to make it back to the NFL Playoffs next season. These are the 5 toughest games standing between the 2015 Bengals and a postseason berth.
5. San Diego Chargers (September 20th)
We've got the Chargers penciled in as dark horse Super Bowl contenders if Philip Rivers sticks around. There's a lot of talent dotted all over the Bolts' roster, and 2015 seems like a perfect storm to finally put it all together for a championship push.
4. @ Arizona Cardinals (November 22nd)
Here's a sneaky entrant on our list. The Cardinals defense is an absolute machine from front seven to secondary and they make any contest a slog in the mud. The Cards' offense hinges on Carson Palmer's health, but the defense is enough to place Arizona in this mix.
3. @ Baltimore Ravens (September 27th)
You can substitute this game for any road contests against the Bengals' AFC North rivals, including the team's traditional in-state rivalry with the Browns. However, this early-season road clash with the Ravens stands out as a massive table-setter for the Bengals in month #1.
2. Seattle Seahawks (October 11th)
Yes it's at home, but the defending NFC Champs always seem to kick it into an extra gear once they get a month or so under their belts. Chasing Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch all over Paul Brown Stadium is going to be a tall task regardless of home-field advantage.
1. Denver Broncos (December 28th)
Going up against a determined Peyton Manning at any time during his likely NFL swansong is going to be one heck of a challenge, but add in a pumped Monday Night Football crowd and the elements and you have a recipe for a doozy.
