How well do the Bengals match up with the Chargers?
Well at first look, the Chargers have the No. 5 offense in the NFL. This is quite a feat considering the number 1 team, the Denver Broncos, set records for points scored in a season. Any other year, they might have been ranked higher. The Bengals on the other hand, are ranked 10th in the NFL in the total Offense Category. This is not to be mistaken for a small feat either. So let’s start with the Offensive Break Down.
Andy Dalton – This season Dalton set two Bengals Franchise records with 4,296 yards, and 33 Touchdowns. He had an average 61.9 completion percentage, along with a disappointing 20 interceptions. He threw four in his final game of the 2013 season against Baltimore. Overall this season has been a bit of a roller coaster ride, but more of the original Beastie at Kings Island than say the Son of the Beast, which quite humorously was torn down for inconsistency.
Philip Rivers – Besides spelling his first name wrong, he had a very nice season. Finishing with 4,478 yards, 32 TD’s, a remarkable 69.5 completion percentage and a low 11 interceptions, Rivers had a very solid year.
