I agree. While KC is a super tough place to play, I actually like getting them in their opener in this case, with all the changes there. LJ may get his 100 yards, but if the defense shows up, there's no reason the Bengals' shouldn't beat that team anywhere. An aging team with a degraded line and a new, lame coaching staff.
The schedule is tough, but, it's tough for all of the AFC Central teams. Regardless, the Bengals' are a notch above the rest of the NFL sans a few teams - they just need to win the games they should and win their division.
This could be the year we've been waiting for since I was in college, and I'm 36 now.
And Palmer's better than Manning or Brady.
