With the 2017 NFL regular season in the books, the Cincinnati Bengals now know their full list of 2018 opponents.

In the Bengals’ 51st season, the team will play the AFC West, NFC South, the third place finishers in the AFC East and AFC South as well as the rest of the AFC North division (twice).

The third place finisher in the AFC East is the Miami Dolphins, who the Bengals have played fairly frequently in recent years. In the AFC South, it’s the Indianapolis Colts who the Bengals will face as the third place finisher in their division. Thanks to the Colts for beating the Houston Texans on Sunday and ensuring the Bengals wouldn’t need to play the Texans in the 2018 regular season. I don’t know about you, but I hate playing the Texans.

Here’s a look at all of the Bengals’ 2018 opponents.

Home:

Denver Broncos

Oakland Raiders

New Orleans Saints

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Miami Dolphins

Baltimore Ravens

Pittsburgh Steelers

Cleveland Browns

Away:

Kansas City Chiefs

Los Angeles Chargers

Atlanta Falcons

Carolina Panthers

Indianapolis Colts

Baltimore Ravens

Pittsburgh Steelers

Cleveland Browns


It’s too early to say if this is a difficult or easy schedule, but there surely will be some interesting games in 2018 for the Bengals. It could be fun to go out west and make Los Angeles into Bengals territory for a week. The game in Atlanta should also be a fun one in their new stadium, which looks awesome and has super cheap concessions. If you’re looking for a close road game to attend, the Colts game will do the trick!

Which games are you most looking forward to in 2018?
