The Cincinnati Bengals and Los Angeles Rams already have a Super Bowl LVI rematch.
Okay, so a preseason game is a far cry from the intensity you’d see in a Super Bowl. We probably won’t even see many (if any) of the players from that game appear even in this one.
That’s not to say this game doesn’t make sense.
There’s still the ongoing competition at left guard between Jackson Carman and rookie Cordell Volson. We’ll also see Drue Chrisman try to take the place of Cincinnati’s oldest player, punter Kevin Huber.
These two battles will likely be the most notable weekly development by fans.
However, there is also an 80-man roster that will need to be reduced to 53. There are plenty of jobs at stake for the bubble of this roster as well as payers taping in to possibly create other rosters or training teams.
It’s also the last time we’ll see the Bengals take to the field before the real excitement begins on Sept. 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Cincinnati.
