Is this the year the Bengals finally win a playoff game? It’s been 23 long years since such an occurrence took place, but this year’s club, again led by longtime head man Marvin Lewis, seems as deep and talented as any since Paul Brown left this earth. 

Rookie tight end Tyler Eifert gives quarterback Andy Dalton another weapon alongside A.J.

The Bengals open their home schedule with a preseason game 7 p.m. Saturday against the Tennessee Titans. $66-$260. Paul Brown Stadium, 1 Paul Brown Stadium, Downtown, 513-621-3550, bengals.com
