As we watched the Seattle Seahawks defeat the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl this year, we were supposed to be watching the two best teams in football. Really, I think this is a year that we truly were. Both teams represent what a good roster looks like when it is well coached and lead into the playoffs.

Some picked the Cincinnati Bengals to be one of those teams this year, because on paper they resemble the team representing the NFC this year. I know that the Seahawks play in the NFC, but I thought it would be interesting to match the Bengals late season/playoff roster up with theirs.

Matching the Broncos roster up with the Bengals would be somewhat pointless, because without Peyton Manning, they are an 8-win team.

Anyhow, here’s a comparison of the Bengals and Seahawks’ roster and who has the edge at each position in my opinion:

OFFENSE

Position Seahawks Bengals Advantage
QB Russell Wilson Andy Dalton Even
RB Marshawn Lynch BenJarvis Green Ellis Seahawks
RB Robert Turbin Gio Bernard Bengals
WR Golden Tate AJ Green Bengals
WR Doug Baldwin Mohammand Sanu Even
WR Jermaine Kearse Marvin Jones Bengals
WR Ricardo Lockett Andrew Hawkins (FA) Bengals
TE Zack Miller Jermain Gresham Bengals
TE Kellen Davis Tyler Eifert Bengals
LT Russel Okung Anthony Collins (FA) Seahawks
LG Paul McQuistan Andrew Whitworth Bengals
C Max Unger Kyle Cook Seahawks
RG JR Weezy Kevin Zietler Bengals
