Last season, all opposing defenses needed to do was shut down A.J. Green, and the Bengals would struggle to do much of anything through the passing game. This season, the Cincinnati Bengals have more weapons than they know what to do with.

On second thought, I think they’re using them all pretty efficiently.

With targets like Mohamed Sanu, Jermaine Gresham, Tyler Eifert and Giovani Bernard in the flats, Andy Dalton is finding ways to get everyone the chance to make a play.

However, there’s one name that wasn’t mentioned. Marvin Jones.

In the win against the Detroit Lions, you may have gotten the good feeling about Jones like I did. He caught four passes for 57 yards and a touchdown in that game, with at least two key third down conversions.
