Question Marks:

  • Linebackers - The Bengals were not good at linebacker last year, and look to James Harrison to come over from Pittsburgh, where he looked slow and old in 2012, and help out the defense. It may not be the fix the Bengals need. Vontaze Burfict seems to be the only bright spot in the linebackes.
  • Andy Dalton - The Bengals have the talent to get to the playoffs, and be a threat once they are there. It will all come down to quarterback Andy Dalton's performance this year.
