2. Cincinnati has an insane arsenal of weapons on offense.

The running back duo of Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard is the best in the NFL when Jeremy Hill is on his game, and although Hill has struggled so far this season, the fact that the Bengals’ rushing attack is still more than competent is huge. If Hill can regain any sense of his 2014 form, this Bengals offense could be even better than it already is. Giovani Bernard is a great change-of-pace back, but he’s currently among the league leaders in rushing despite being a backup.
In the passing game, Andy Dalton’s arsenal of A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert, Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu is one that can’t be matched by most teams. The are the only NFL team with an elite receiver and and a difference-making tight end, now that Julius Thomas is a Jacksonville Jaguar. Marvin Jones has been one of the league’s best deep threats this season, and even Mohamed Sanu, Brandon Tate and Giovani Bernard have stepped up with some big plays in the passing game.
Dalton’s offensive line flies under-the-radar, but aside from its miserable performance in Seattle, the offensive line has been one of the league’s best. The Red Rifle has had all day to throw and barely ever seems to feel pressure. The run-blocking has been just as stellar this season, as well.
