The 2021 Cincinnati Bengals will go down in history as one of the great surprise teams to reach a Super Bowl. Cincinnati was coming off five consecutive losing seasons, including a 4-11-1 campaign in 2020. But the Bengals snuck up on the rest of the AFC with a strong passing attack led by quarterback Joe Burrow and a defense that, while not dominant, was improved and good enough to limit opposition scoring. Head coach Zac Taylor was in his third season and impressed everyone with his steady leadership skills.

Owner Mike Brown, son of the late great Bengals founder Paul Brown, has long been derided for operating the Bengals on the cheap. The Bengals have a bare-bones scouting staff. And they have long cut costs wherever they could. But Mike Brown is having the last laugh. So many other NFL clubs have wasted millions of dollars on such follies as analytics and multi-layered scouting staffs with no results to show for it. Brown has built a franchise that is lean, mean, and efficient.

Quarterback Joe “Cool” Burrow was the first pick taken in the 2020 NFL Draft out of LSU. In his second season with the Bayou Bengals, Burrow won the Heisman Trophy, leading LSU to an undefeated season and national championship.

The Bengals earned a high grade for their 2022 NFL Draft performance. Cincinnati drafted five defensive players with their six picks. Michigan defensive back Daxton Hill was their first round pick. This emphasis on defense was a reaction to the struggles of the Bengals stop-unit in the Super Bowl loss to the Rams.

The Cincinnati Bengals were founded in 1968 as an American Football League expansion franchise. They hold the distinction of being the last team formed in the old AFL.

The late great coach Paul Brown was the founder and first head coach of the Bengals. Brown was ousted by the Cleveland Browns in 1962 and was stewing in exile until the Bengals' opportunity opened. Cincinnati became one of the most successful expansion franchises in pro football history. In their third season, Brown led the Bengals to the AFC Central title and set the stage for a perennial contender.

Cincinnati has never won a Super Bowl championship but has been to the big game three times. The 1981 Bengals lost to the San Francisco 49ers. The 1988 Bengals were defeated in the final seconds by the 49ers again. And then came the 2021 team that shocked the pro football and gambling world by making it to Super Sunday, only to lose another close one to the Los Angeles Rams.
