Second year Bengals with the most to prove in 2016

With their rookie season already in the books, these sophomore Bengals have the most to gain or lose in 2016. Coming into the 2016 season a lot of hype is on the established stars like A.J. Green, Andy Dalton, and Giovani Bernard. The rest of the hype seems to be pointed to this year’s new class of rookie talent. But what about last year’s draft picks? We saw some of the 2015 class in action more than others last year, but who has the most to prove this year in the class’ second year in the NFL? Here are few key second year players looking to make an impact in their second...

Oddsmakers believe Andy Dalton has a shot at NFL MVP

Andy Dalton has 50/1 odds to win NFL MVP while A.J. Green's odds are 200/1 to win the award. Bovada has released updated odds for the player who will win the NFL MVP award in 2016. Last week, we made a bold prediction that Andy Dalton would win the NFL MVP and you weren't all so happy with the prediction, calling us crazy on social media and in the comments section of the article. Many people, who claim to be Bengals fans, just could not get behind this prediction, despite Dalton being in the MVP discussion for much of the time he was healthy last season. Well, now Bovada is behind us,...

2016 Bengals Bold Predictions: A.J. Green will be named First Team All-Pro

Another in a series of bold predictions for the Bengals upcoming season, we look at the case for why A.J. Green will finally be named to the All-Pro First Team for the 2016 season. Since entering the NFL as the Bengals’ first round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, A.J. Green has been nothing but spectacular. He has set numerous records for receiving production to start a career. And during his career he is averaging more than 1,200 receiving yards and 9 touchdowns per season. He has been selected to the Pro Bowl in all five of his NFL seasons, and has been named to the All-Pro Second Team...

2016 Bengals Bold Predictions: Andy Dalton will win NFL MVP

Another in a series of bold predictions for the Bengals' upcoming season, we look at the case for why Andy Dalton will win the NFL MVP award for the 2016 season. Since being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, as the fifth quarterback off the board, Dalton has been compared to the rest of the quarterbacks selected that year. Initially he was compared to Ryan Mallett, a quarterback the Bengals passed on to draft Dalton. Then after Colin Kaepernick’s flash in the pan career was flashing, Dalton was being compared to him. Dalton has surpassed both of those quarterbacks, and...

A.J. Green in elite tier of NFL fantasy football players for 2016

A.J. Green should be right there near the top when you need a wide receiver in fantasy football after being so-so a lot in 2015. It won't be long until we're all hitting the 'draft' button in our fantasy football leagues. When it comes time to take a wide receiver, there's no question A.J. Green should be at or near the top of the list for guys you want to hit 'draft' for. The Bengals' Pro Bowl receiver is easily one of the best pass-catchers in the game, not to mention someone who's routinely rewarded those who've had him on their fantasy team. That's why NFL.com's Matt Harmon, also...

Top 5 Bengals tackles from the last 20 years

The Bengals have delivered crushing hits in modern times, but none better than these. The Bengals have had some great plays over the years. For the most part, they have fielded offensive teams that like to create drama by scoring in spectacular ways, such as Giovani Bernard's shifty touchdown run against the Miami Dolphins in 2013 or Peter Warrick's 77-yard touchdown catch against the Chiefs in 2003 to secure one of the most memorable victories in Bengals history. But, there have been some spectacular defensive plays over the years too. In particular, the Bengals have put together some...

More proof Bengals winning the offseason

The Bengals have been as good as just about any team in the NFL when it comes to not only re-signing their own, but also not committing lots of guaranteed money that can come back and hamstring the team later on. Winning on the football field is never easy, but neither is winning off of it. As we've seen this offseason, no team scores a perfect record when it comes to re-signing their own over the long term. Even when teams like the Bengals desperately work to re-sign guys like Marvin Jones, it's simply not always going to work out. The Bengals' fears came true this offseason as...

90-in-90 Bengals Roster Breakdown: AJ McCarron seeking opportunities to impress

AJ McCarron has never lacked confidence. That's a good quality in a quarterback-- unless you're glued to the bench behind one of the best passers in the game. But the former Alabama star and Andy Dalton have a strong relationship. So McCarron is likely looking to grow while showcasing his skills in hopes of eventually getting a starting gig elsewhere. One bleeds Crimson red and the other has red on his head. AJ McCarron and Andy Dalton are the greatest quarterback combo in the league. And that, contrary to how desperate sports writers might try to spin it, is a very good thing. Marvin...

Bengals' pass-catchers still highly-regarded, despite turnover

Even though the Cincinnati Bengals lost two of their top three receivers this offseason, the data-gatherers at Pro Football Focus still likes what the team has to offer in the pass-catcher department. Last year, the Bengals' offense made some big leaps--particularly in the passing game. Quarterback Andy Dalton played at an MVP level, while the returns of Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones from 2014 injuries provided a much-needed spark. Unfortunately, the team lost two of their top three receivers in Jones and Mohamed Sanu in free agency, so they were tasked with replacing them with veteran and...

Do the Bengals have one of the best quarterback situations in the NFL?

The Bengals have two capable players at the quarterback position, but do Andy Dalton and AJ McCarron comprise one of the league's best groups? Few NFL quarterbacks have experienced the amount of regular season success as Andy Dalton, and even fewer have received the criticism the sixth-year starter has been given. Yet, after a career-year in 2015, the supposed "Dalton Line" created by critics has dissipated, and the embattled Bengals signal-caller has finally been gaining some respect. In an ironic twist of fate which can only be given by the heartbreak-dealing Cincinnati Bengals, Dalton...

Jeremy Hill praises Bengals' experience, believes Tyler Boyd will make early impact

The NFL's reigning leader in rushing touchdowns is excited to see his team shape up in 2016. Jeremy Hill has made himself very available to the media this offseason, and in a recent interview on NFL Total Access, he gave fans some more insight into what the Bengals are shaping up to become in 2016: a veteran-dependent team with an influx of youth on both sides of the ball. The Bengals have been a relatively young team throughout the Andy Dalton era, but with the quarterback entering his sixth season, Cincinnati has shifted into a veteran team. Of the Bengals' 13 projected 2016 starters...
