No one outside of Cincinnati was expecting to see the Bengals make a Super Bowl run. Their current squad is filled with young, audacious, kids who have no idea what they’re doing on a football field just yet.

This season was supposed to be just another step in the right direction, possibly finishing with a record just below .500 before preparing to take another leap in 2022. That’s usually how this works but the Bengals skipped all of those steps and decided that they were ready to make the leap right now.

With only one more win waiting in the big game, should the Bengals be viewed as in over their heads on the offensive side of the ball? Remember their AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs? Sure the Chiefs were considered as having the better offensive unit but the Bengals went out there and won the game anyway.

On paper, the Los Angeles Rams are loaded on offense. But it’s about time that we looked past the young age of the Bengals and evaluated their talent just from their production. Since we’ve taken a new approach, do the Bengals actually have the better offensive players? Let’s find out.
