There isn’t much to say about the Bengals. This is the perfect spot for them in the power rankings. The Bengals fool everyone every year, starting out very strong and stumbling to the finish.
Their offense is stacked with some of the most explosive players in the league. Andy Dalton has Giovanni Brenard, Jeremy Hill, A.J. Green, and Mohamed Sanu to work with. The fact that the Bengals can’t win a playoff game is unbelievable.
The Bengals defense could use some work and signing defensive end Michael Johnson was a step in the right direction. They need to provide more of a pass rush. They should focus on defense in the draft and try to revive the dominant Bengals defense.
Not winning a playoff game in the Dalton era is very alarming. The Bengals are an all around good team that just needs to clean up their act. If this year ends up in another failure, there may be some big changes.
