BENGALS' 2010 OPPONENTS ARE SET
The Bengals' list of 2010 opponents includes games against all three of the other 2009 AFC Division champions.
AFC East champ New England is on every AFC North team's schedule, as the North and East divisions are paired in the 2010 schedule rotation. But as AFC North champions, the Bengals also draw standings-determined games against the champs of the AFC South and West (Indianapolis and San Diego).
In interconference play in 2010, all AFC North teams are matched against the NFC South. The Bengals will have home games against defending NFC South champ New Orleans, as well as Tampa Bay. Cincinnati will be on the road at Atlanta and Carolina.
Game dates and tentative kickoff times will not be determined until the spring, but below is a roundup of Bengals opponents for 2010:
* Home: Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
* Away: Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Indianapolis Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers.
