Last season, the Cincinnati Bengals went 11-5, finished first in the AFC North and fell to the San Diego Chargers in the Wild Card round of the playoffs. They drafted cornerback Darqueze Dennard in the first round of this year’s draft and signed offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse in free agency, along with the re-signings of in-house free agents Brandon Tate, Mike Pollak and Taylor Mays.
Cincinnati opens the 2014 preseason on the road against Kansas City and at home vs. the New York Jets in consecutive weeks, followed by a road trip to Arizona and the home finale vs. the Colts. The team begins the regular season Sept. 7 on the road against division rival Baltimore.
