The 2019 season was the Cincinnati Bengals' 50th in the National Football League, their 52nd overall, their 20th playing home games at Paul Brown Stadium and the first under head coach Zac Taylor.

This marked the Bengals' fourth consecutive losing season. They finished the season 2-14, tying their franchise-worst record from 2002.

With a Week 16 loss to the Miami Dolphins, the Bengals secured the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. It is the first time they will have the first overall pick since 2003.
