Cincinnati Bengals will have a non-losing record behind Burrow’s arm

Something neither Mayfield nor Murray was able to accomplish during their rookie season was to lead a winning team. Both made tremendous improvements and won more games than previous years, but both ended with a record below .500. In 2020, Burrow will lead the Bengals to at least an 8-8 record.

For the Bengals to end the year without a losing record would be a huge performance for the young quarterback. While going from last place to competing in a division is difficult, it is not impossible and Cincinnati is set up for success.

A solid defensive line and improved secondary will be instrumental in limiting opposing team’s possessions and chances. Plus, the offense has an opportunity to be one of the best units in the league and Burrow will be a huge part of that.

A season ago, 8 of the team’s losses came by one possession. Meaning if the defense could have come up with one more stop, or the offense put together one more drive, the Bengals would have been in a position to win many of those games. The difference between Andy Dalton and Joe Burrow is the difference between losing by three or winning by four. Burrow takes a talented team and gives them the edge they need to get over the hump and go at least 8-8 in 2020.
