The Cincinnati Bengals' actual schedule for the 2022-2023 season is still a mystery, but at least we know who the team will be playing.

Just a week after their Super Bowl LVI near-win, the Bengals have announced the team's opponents for the upcoming season. The slate, shared via social media, features major AFC challengers as well as NFC teams.
In the AFC, the Bengals will have a rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs — the team that Cincinnati knocked off with an Evan McPherson kick in overtime, sending the Bengals to the Super Bowl.

Cincinnati also will play the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. During the 2021-2022 season, the Bengals defeated the Steelers twice, as well as three consecutive times if you count their previous meeting.

The Bengals also will play the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, New York Jets and Tennessee Titans, which Cincinnati defeated in 2021-2022's AFC Divisional round.

NFC opponents this season will include the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, New Orleans Saints and Super Bowl LV winners the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Cincinnati Bengals have not yet announced specific matchup dates for the 2022-2023 season.
