With plenty of new faces in the Queen City, we make three bold predictions for the Cincinnati Bengals’ 2020 offense.
The Cincinnati Bengals’ offense certainly had a forgettable 2019 season. The team averaged just 17.4 points a game, ranking 19th in passing offense and 25th in rushing. Perhaps worst of all, their campaign was marked with a poor showing inside the money zone, as they rated out among the worst in the league in red-zone efficiency.
Thankfully, the front office went to work to infuse plenty of new talent. Most notably, Joe Burrow is the man under center now. Don’t forget about the newly acquired Tee Higgins, along with A.J. Green and Jonah Williams returning from injury as well.
No matter how talented the group looks on paper, they’ll face some struggles along the way. Primarily, Burrow has to get used to the speed of the NFL. That’ll be especially difficult to do with so much being canceled this offseason.
Still, reports indicated the LSU product is weeks ahead on learning the playbook. Not to mention, Green has made comments about the receiving group meeting with Burrow to build chemistry.
With some hard work and a little luck, the unit can be much-improved from a season ago. Here, we’ll explore the upper-limits of the Bengals’ 2020 offense to come up with three bold predictions.
