Cincinnati Bengals 2024 NFL Season Win/Loss Total

By Jeff Stinger

The Cincinnati Bengals are unquestionably Super Bowl contenders as long as QB Joe Burrow is healthy, but the former No. 1 overall pick’s injury history is now a bit concerning after he missed a large chunk of another season in 2023. What to expect from the 2024 Bengals if Burrow is healthy?

Cincinnati has the 16th-toughest schedule in the NFL this season, as its opponents combined for a .502 winning percentage in 2023. The Bengals are 9-point home favorites for Week 1 vs. New England. In their first NFL opener at home against the Patriots since 2001 (the last one not started by Tom Brady for the next 18 seasons), the Bengals get the Pats in their first post-Bill Belichick game.

The Week 2 contest against the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs will mark the fourth time in four seasons that the Bengals play at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, which includes two AFC Championship games. Cincinnati will be featured in five prime-time games as well. The 2024 season marks the first time in team history that the Bengals are scheduled to play on Thursday Night Football twice in the same year.

The Injury List

Burrow was hurt early in 2023 training camp and didn’t look quite the same early in the regular season as the Bengals started 1-3. However, they appeared to be turning things around until Thursday night in Week 11 in Baltimore, in which Burrow would be lost to a season-ending wrist injury. Burrow tore a ligament in his right wrist after he landed on the wrist after he was hit by Ravens defensive end Jadeveon Clowney on a 9-yard play in Baltimore’s red zone. On the next play, Burrow went down in pain after firing the touchdown pass to running back Joe Mixon. But that would be it for Burrow in 2023.

It was the second time Burrow suffered a season-ending injury in his four-year career. The former Heisman winner from LSU saw his 2020 rookie year cut short when he suffered multiple torn ligaments in his left knee in a Week 11 loss to Washington.

The Bengals were beset by injuries in 2023. The fact that they managed to win nine games — including four of the seven started by backup QB Jake Browning after Burrow was — made it a good season, but it’s still never fun to miss the playoffs, especially during what should be the height of the Burrow era. Burrow is healthy now, and the Bengals were able to re-sign Browning for some insurance. He started the final seven games and finished the season by completing 70.3% of his passes for 1,936 yards, 12 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. The former Washington standout had been on the Bengals’ practice squad since 2021.

Squad Changes

Cincinnati does have a new offensive coordinator in Dan Pitcher. He takes over for Brian Callahan, who became the head coach in Tennessee this offseason. Head coach Zac Taylor will continue to call offensive plays, though. Pitcher has been with the team since 2016, three seasons before Taylor was hired, and he’s spent the past four seasons working with Burrow as the quarterback coach.

The Bengals will have a new primary running back as they goodbye to Joe Mixon, who was traded to the Texans after being Cincinnati’s primary ball-carrier for the past seven seasons, and added Zack Moss, Moss, who set career highs in touches (210), scrimmage yards (986) and touchdowns (seven) with the Colts in 2023 in basically half a season of work as Jonathan Taylor’s fill-in. Cincy also has high hopes for Chase Brown, who showed promise last year in limited action as a rookie.

WR Tyler Boyd, who’d been with the Bengals since 2016, joined Mixon in Houston this offseason, creating an opening in the slot. Fellow WR Tee Higgins demanded a trade this offseason because he didn’t want to be slapped with the franchise tag, but was and will play on it this year – and then likely leave in free agency next winter. A second-round draft pick of the Bengals in 2020, Higgins has played in 58 career regular-season games, with 53 starts. He has caught 257 passes for 3684 yards and 24 TDs, including back-to-back 1000-yard seasons in 2021 and ’22.

Players to Look Out For

Ja’Marr Chase remains Burrow’s top target and soon could be the highest-paid WR in the NFL. The Bengals already have picked up Chase’s option for 2025, which for now will pay him $21.8 million for next season. That’s just a place-holder, as it’s well under market value for the highest going rate for wide receivers.

Star defensive end Trey Hendrickson, who was second in the NFL in sacks created last season and tied for second in total sacks (17.5), had asked for a trade after the Bengals declined to give him a long-term deal. Last summer, he added an extra year to his contract through the end of the 2025 season. Hendrickson will suit up this season and says all is good with the team now as they chase a Super Bowl. The 29-year-old has been one of the league’s best edge rushers since the Bengals signed him in 2021 to a four-year deal worth $60 million. He has 40.5 sacks since, the fifth-highest total during that span.

The Bengals upgraded the defense by signing tackle Sheldon Rankins, who ranked seventh in pass rush win rate as a defensive tackle in 2023. He was a former teammate of Hendrickson’s in New Orleans. By adding Rankins, who had six sacks last season, and letting respected defensive tackle DJ Reader leave in free agency, Cincinnati traded one of the league’s best gap-stuffing run stoppers for someone who has proven to get more pressure on quarterbacks.
