1. How important will it be for Cincinnati not to fall into an 0-2 hole if they wish to win their first AFC North title since 2009?

The Bengals haven’t opened 0-2 since 2008, when they lost their first eight games. However, they’ve lost the opener in four of the last five years. Starting in an 0-2 hole can be recovered from, especially in the AFC North, since they would only be a game behind, but psychologically, losing their first two games, especially with the Steelers being the second loss. It might be devastating to such a young team, giving them the feeling that they just can’t get past Pittsburgh.
