I have to look inside the numbers a little bit here, but I will also predict a decent season for the Bengals, though I personally think 6 wins is about right!!
2002 Bengals - finished at 2-14.
They played the AFC South (not a real powerhouse division), and the NFC South (A pretty good division), plus San Diego and Buffalo.
They lost 14 games, by margins broken down as follows:
25 or more points - 4 times (these were all in the first six weeks of the season!)
20-24 point losses - once (if I recall correctly, this was the last game of the year against Buffalo, and didn't mean anything!).
15-19 point losses - once.
10-14 point losses - Three times.
5-9 point losses - Four times.
1-4 point loss - once.
2003 Bengals - will be playing the AFC West (Tough), and NFC West (Not too bad), plus Houston and Buffalo. They've also started Free Agency Period by signing some Defensive help (Powell), and letting some offense go (Neal).
Looking at the 2002 season, I think the Bengals were almost there, and I really think adding Lewis as the HC, will put them over the top, and actually make them respectable. I do see them winning six games in 2003.
