A.J. Green and Andrew Whitworth make Pro Football Focus' best AFC players

The Bengals have two of the NFL's best at their respective positions in Andrew Whitworth and A.J. Green. In today's NFL, the best offenses typically feature a perfect blend of strength in the trenches and through the air. The Bengals are lucky to have both of those things. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth leads a Bengals offensive line that wins more often than not when it comes to trench warfare. Whether it's mauling defenders in the run game or keeping them off his quarterback, Whitworth is what a franchise tackle should be. But when called upon, A.J. Green does as much damage through the...

90-in-90 Bengals Roster Breakdown: Christian Westerman a wild card on o-line

If Christian Westerman plays only at guard, he may not see the field as a rookie. If he works at center too, then this becomes a very interesting player to watch for in 2016. The Cincinnati Bengals have typically had one of the NFL's better offensive lines under Marvin Lewis' watch. The old-school Lewis knows how critical winning in the trenches is. That's something his old Ravens defenses did on a regular basis, so Lewis has kept his o-line strong enough to handle any NFL defense they face. You won't catch his lines getting mauled like the Ravens units did many times while he was on...

Where does Atkins rank among interior defensive linemen? Can he get even better in 2016? There’s no questioning whether Geno Atkins is the best defender on the Bengals or whether he’s a top five interior defensive lineman in the NFL. But with J.J. Watt, Aaron Donald and others dominating, where does Atkins stack up in the pecking order? Did Atkins reach his ceiling in 2015 or can he be even better? When grading and ranking interior defensive linemen (3-4 defensive ends, 4-3 defensive tackles and nose tackles from both base defenses), Atkins usually ranks somewhere between third and...

Andy Dalton-A.J. Green connection more vital than ever in 2016

The quarterback-wide receiver duo has been fantastic throughout the careers of each player. Have Dalton and Green earned the benefit of the doubt? Hue Jackson, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu are gone, yet the Bengals remain as confident as ever, thanks in part to what has arguably become the most reliable quarterback-receiver connection in the NFL. If it weren't for Andy Dalton and A.J. Green, the Bengals could still be a cellar dweller, even in 2016. The Bengals, once predicted to go 0-16 in 2011, are now one of the NFL's most dominant clubs, though Cincinnati is still looking for its...
