These players could be seeing their last season in stripes.

Ranking AFC North quarterbacks for the 2022 season
Even taking out the drama in Cleveland it’s impossible to get a read on it. Lamar Jackson’s coming off an injury-riddled season. Pittsburgh could start a rookie or former bust. Joe Burrow could only get better and in Cleveland, the starter – and whether that starter will get back to his usual self – isn’t guaranteed to play.

Will Chris Evans become an impact player in loaded Bengals offense?

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

The second-year back could find himself with a much larger role this coming season.

There are high hopes for Cincinnati Bengals second-year running back Chris Evans among the fanbase. After a rookie season with limited offensive snaps with flashes of potential, many are looking for Evans to take a leap and become the primary second back behind Joe Mixon.

Way-too-early schedule predictions: Bengals vs. Browns

Round 2 in the Battle of Ohio takes place in Paul Brown Stadium.

When the Cleveland Browns franchise made its return to the NFL in 1999, it turned out to be great news for their in-state rivals.

For much of the 2000s, the Cincinnati Bengals dominated this series, including seven-straight wins from 2014-17.

However, the script was flipped once Baker Mayfield joined the Browns in 2018, as they’ve now won seven of that last...

The Bengals roster is getting national attention.

The Cincinnati Bengals are fresh off its first Super Bowl appearance since 1989 and have spent the offseason building a roster capable of competing to get back to the big game for the foreseeable future.

With an improved roster and a budding superstar at quarterback, the Bengals got plenty of love from Sports Illustrated’s Conor Orr on his list of 10 potential first-time pro bowlers.

Joe Mixon should be drafted over Najee Harris for Fantasy Football in 2022

Drew Sample just keeps quietly blocking

We all know the meme that Drew Sample is a blocking tight end, but he could look better when the offensive line is also blocking well.

When the Cincinnati Bengals weren’t winning during the Zac Taylor era, one of the big topics of criticism was using a second round pick on tight end Drew Sample in the 2019 NFL draft. We could argue about who they could have drafted instead or whether Sample has lived up to that pick. However, it is going to be more...

Carson Palmer just can’t catch a break

The former Bengals QB is one of the greatest “what if” stories in franchise history.

Recently, there was a bit of a discussion on Twitter about the Bengals’ recent Super Bowl run with Joe Burrow and whether or not Carson Palmer could have done the same in 2005-06.

Palmer, though, is not viewed in nearly the same capacity as Burrow for a few reasons:

He was injured on his first throw of a Wild Card game that the team would lose He only made the...

Germaine Pratt’s subtle influence

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Germaine Pratt isn’t the flashiest linebacker, but he may have helped a defense that started to slip near midseason regain footing.

The Cincinnati Bengals 2021 defense may have been one of the biggest surprises on a team that came out of absolutely nowhere. The previous two seasons they were one of the worst defenses in football, and that all changed during the run to the Super Bowl.

You don’t get a swing like that in production without a few underrated...

Joe Mixon does not lack confidence in the 2022 Cincinnati Bengals

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Mixon is ready to prove 2021 was no fluke.

A glance around the NFL world may show you that there isn’t a ton of confidence in the Cincinnati Bengals heading in to the 2022 season. Despite being one drive shy of a Super Bowl, there has been a lot of talk about division rivals taking the crown and the word “fluke” has been used far too many times for any Bengal fan to like.

One person not lacking confidence, however is running back Joe Mixon.

The 9 best throws from Joe Burrow’s 2021 season

Nine for No. 9.

For all the things that Joe Burrow is commended for, it seems like his ability to throw the football gets lost in the constant praise.

Seriously, it’s a bit odd.

Quarterbacks are the face of the team in more ways than one. Their voice carries as much significance as their cap hits. They cost upwards of three first-round picks to acquire, and hundreds of millions in cash to keep around. When you know you have the right one, he can...
