The Bengals have the potential to compete for an AFC North Title in 2018. This is a boom or bust season for the team, and another year with a losing record could bring major changes to the team and it’s future.

The Bengals finished 3rd in the AFC North last season with a 7-9 record and missed the playoffs for the second consecutive season. The Bengals were as low as you can get in total yards ending up at 32nd, but they were a little better in defense finishing at 18th. Andy Dalton did have a subpar season, but you cannot put that all on him. The Bengals offensive line was one of the worst in the league and gave zero help to allow the offense to gain momentum.

There is a lot to be excited about this years team, they made a couple moves this offseason that will improve the team. Bengals fans seem to be more interested and have high hope for this years’ team, than the past two seasons. The expectations are very high for this team and need to finally get over the hump and win in the postseason. With the talent that is on this team, that is very possible. Look out for this team to be competing for a division title and a chance at making a title run.
