Not that you can ever know for sure with how much the NFL changes from year to year, but the Bengals have a much more favorable schedule next year. I seriously think 11 wins is pretty possible, and that's without the Bengals improving much from this year.
Both the Browns and Bengals can take comfort in the fact that they had ridiculously tough schedules this year.
