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...

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...

Bengals Roster Reset 2016: State of the Tackles

From Big Whit in Year 11 to Cedric Ogbuehi in Year 2, this is a unit that should remain strong for the foreseeable future. There  many not be a team in the NFL with a better mix of battle-tested veterans and promising youngsters at offensive tackle than the Cincinnati Bengals. Leading the way once again is left tackle Andrew Whitworth, who is entering his 11th tour of duty in the Queen City. After being drafted out of LSU in the second round of the 2006 NFL Draft, Whitworth has gone from being a swing tackle and spot starter early in his career, to playing guard at a high level for...

Would You Rather: Ogbuehi or Fisher start at right tackle for Bengals in 2016?

Long time Bengals starter Andre Smith is now with the Minnesota Vikings, meaning the right tackle position is likely slated for Cedric Ogbuehi or Jake Fisher this year. Which one would you rather see get it? Four of the Bengals' offensive line starters from last year return to Cincinnati in 2016, and would seem to have a virtual stranglehold on their positions. Andrew Whitworth is coming off an All Pro selection, much to Jason Peters’ chagrin. The 34-year-old tackle won’t be moved from his starting role in the final year of his contract with the Bengals. Clint Boling has done a...

Could Andrew Whitworth move inside to guard after 2016?

Given his age and the current state of the Bengals' offensive line depth, it might not be such a bad idea. Long time Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth is regularly recognized as one of the best players at his position and in the NFL. He's been elected to the Pro Bowl twice, was a first team All Pro last year for the third time and finally made the NFL's top 100 players list this year. He's held down the Bengals' left tackle position since switching from left guard in 2009. Since then, there has been virtually no question as to where he fits best on the depth chart. However, at...

Andy Dalton's success mirrors Bengals' success as a team

Andy Dalton's performance seems to have more influence on the Bengals' success than you might think. The Bengals have one of the most talented rosters in the NFL. Recently, they were mentioned as the NFL's seventh most talented team, among other talented rosters like the Kansas City Chiefs, Arizona Cardinals, and Minnesota Vikings. It's a fact that quarterback Andy Dalton knows very well, having the good fortune to work with so many talented offensive weapons. As a quarterback, there's a lot to appreciate about that setup. However, it seems as though Dalton's individual success almost...
