When they travel to Oakland on Sept. 13 for the season opener against the Raiders, the Cincinnati Bengals will begin the schedule regarded the NFL's second-toughest.

To say the Cincinnati Bengals need to step up in the biggest games of the year would be an understatement. They’ve lost in the Wild Card round of the playoffs in each of the last four years and they have lost their last seven-playoff games as a franchise. Their last win in the playoffs was in 1990 against the Houston Oilers in the Wild Card round. Lately, the main problem in the playoffs has been on offense. In their last four-playoff games, they’ve averaged fewer than 11 points per game and have been outscored 103-43 in those games. It has been tough to take for Bengals’ fans after such successful regular seasons.
