The Chicago Bears schedule in 2013 will not be the cakewalk that was the team’s 2012 schedule. The Bears won 10 games last season, but it was a soft 10 wins as a bulk of the Bears wins last season came in the first half when the team was playing teams that were no better than college teams.
The Cincinnati Bengals will be an early test for the Bears. The Bengals are expected to be one of the contenders in the AFC this season and will be one of the many tough matchups for the Bears this season.
But before the Bears and Bengals take the field on Sunday, lets take a moment to look at the Bengals primer.
Head Coach: Marvin Lewis
2012 Record: 10-6, lost their first playoff game to the Houston Texans
Projected Season Finish: The Bengals are the flavor of the month in the AFC North. Despite the fact that the Baltimore Ravens are the defending Super Bowl champions, many have picked the Bengals to win their division this season and perhaps be the AFC representative in the Super Bowl.
