As previously mentioned, the Bengals were pitiful in the red-zone last year. So, making a jump into the top-10 in terms of efficiency would be quite the accomplishment.
When looking at the arsenal of receivers the Bengals possess, such a drastic improvement isn’t out of the question. Offensive coordinator Brian Callahan has the ability to trot out big wideouts with the ability to box out defenders, making them great at winning 50-50 balls. Some of those players include A.J. Green (6’4″), Tee Higgins (6’4″), Auden Tate (6’5″), and C.J. Uzomah (6’6″).
Of course, you can’t forget about John Ross, who has been one of the team’s most lethal options inside the 20-yard line. Tyler Boyd can’t be overlooked either.
In all, the team has the personnel that will make it difficult for an opposing defense to match up against. From length, to height, to speed, to sharp route running, the offense has it all.
Zac Taylor struggled with red-zone play-calling to begin his head coaching career, but with a year under his belt, he should improve quite a bit. Burrow is great at throwing to the back shoulder as well, which should make things easier for everybody involved.
