NFL RUSH
Team Report Cards: Bengals Earned Their Stripes

Cincinnati Bengals

2012 Record: 10-6

Grade: B


The Good:

 

    • - WR A.J. Green had 1350 yards receiving and 11 TDs. Not bad for his second season!
    • - DEs Geno Atkins and Michael Johnson combined for an amazing 24 sacks.
  • - The Bengals won 7 of their final 8 games last year.

 

The Bad:

 

  • - They ranked 26th in passing defense and 27th in total defense.
  • - Leading rusher RB Benjarvus Green-Ellis averaged less than 4 yards per carry.
  • - Though he threw 27 TDs, QB Andy Dalton also had 16 INTs and a marginal completion rate of 61%.

 

The Future:

  • - Draft Position #21: OT DJ Flunker or DB Xavier Rhodes
  • - Free Agent Targets: T Andre Smith, LB Karlos Dansby and S Charles Woodson
  • - Trade: The Bengals need to find a quality backup QB. If they can’t find one in the draft they’ll need to trade for one.
 

Are the Bengals true contenders in 2013?
