The 1982 Cincinnati Bengals season was the team's 15th year in professional football and its 13th with the National Football League (NFL). 1982 was the first year in which the Bengals made the playoffs for a second-consecutive season; they would not do so again for another 30 years.

The Bengals posted a 7–2 record in a strike-shortened season to earn a postseason berth, but lost to the Jets in the first round of the playoffs, 44–17. Ken Anderson led the AFC in passing for the fourth time as the Bengals boasted the second-best offense in the NFL.
