How To Watch the Cincinnati Bengals

Can the Bengals bounce back after a down year? Check out our watch guide for 2024–2025 Cincinnati Bengals.

Under quarterback Joe Burrow, the Cincinnati Bengals have been a fairly consistent squad, but they hit an uncharacteristic rough patch last season. Backup quarterback Jake Browning kept the Bengals afloat after they lost Burrow to injury midway through the season, but the Bengals still missed the playoffs.

Still, Bengals fans have a lot to look forward to heading into the offseason. Burrow will be back under center and the Bengals have refreshed their core talent ahead of another season in a competitive AFC North. Here’s what you need to know to watch the 2024–2025 Cincinnati Bengals.
