The start of the 2014 NFL season can't come soon enough, and the Cincinnati Bengals are ready for the upcoming season to begin.

The Baltimore Ravens are up first, and this game will feature the past three AFC North division winners. Baltimore claimed the division in 2011 and 2012, but it was Cincinnati who dethroned them in 2013.

On offense, Cincinnati returns nine of 11 starters from last year. Rookie center Russell Bodine is the lone newcomer, while Marvin Jones won't play Week 1 as he recovers from a broken foot.

Here's what the Bengals depth chart looks like heading into Sunday.
