The Cincinnati Bengals didn’t have much of a Super Bowl loss hangover this season for a franchise that appears to have plenty going for them looking toward the future. The Bengals qualified for the playoffs for the second season in a row with Joe Burrow continuing to prove he can excel at the pro level.
The Bengals have a strong roster on both sides of the ball and are above average in just about every category as a team outside of the offensive rushing attack. That should be an area that can be addressed in the offseason as Cincinnati was one of the worst teams in the league in yards per rush attempt.
