Bengals' biggest snub from NFL Top 100 players show

Who do you feel was the Bengals' biggest snub from the show? If you've been watching the NFL Top 100 Players show, we've seen seven Bengals from the 2015 team make the list. And it was a well-deserved honor for all seven guys, as they had seasons worthy of having their names put on any ranking of the NFL's 100 best players. A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert were two of the league's most dominant pass-catchers, while Andy Dalton was no slouch playing pitch and catch with them. That wouldn't happen nearly as often and as efficiently if Andrew Whitworth wasn't holding down the blindside. On...

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.

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...

Evaluating Geno Atkins’ ceiling and where he stacks up at defensive tackle

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...
