The Cincinnati Bengals fell short in the AFC Championship Game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the future is bright for this franchise. Joe Burrow continues to shine, and the hometown hero is very unlikely to request a change of scenery. That’s huge considering the historic trouble this franchise has had with signing free agents and keeping people in southeast Ohio. If it wasn’t for injuries along the offensive line late in the year, the Bengals probably would have beat the Chiefs in Arrowhead Stadium for the second straight season, but Burrow was sacked five times, and this offense was one-dimensional without a competent run game. Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine combined to carry the ball 13 times for just 41 yards on the day.

Cincinnati Bengals 2022 Season Recap

For the first two weeks, it looked like Cincinnati might have a Super Bowl hangover. The Bengals lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Dallas Cowboys, as Joe Burrow was sacked a whopping 13 times. The offensive line was supposed to be retooled in the offseason so that Burrow didn’t take so many hits, but the results through the first two games weren’t great.

However, Cincinnati settled down from there and proceeded to win 12 of its next 14 games. The Bengals didn’t drop a home game after Week 1, and they won eight straight regular season games to close out the campaign. They gutted out a tough win against division rival Baltimore in the Wild Card Round, and they backed that up with a victory over Buffalo in the Divisional Round.

Burrow had another fantastic season under center, completing 68.3% of his passes for 4,475 yards (7.4 YPA) with 35 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins both had great seasons as his top two targets, and Chase finished with 87 receptions for 1,046 yards and nine touchdowns despite missing five games. Higgins had 74 receptions for 1,029 yards and seven touchdowns, while Tyler Boyd was the best slot receiver in the league with 58 catches for 762 yards and five touchdowns.

This team could be even better next year too if the ground game takes a step forward. Joe Mixon averaged just 3.9 YPC as one of the most underwhelming players given the talent around him, and Samaje Perine wasn’t much better at 4.1 YPC.

It will be interesting to see what happens with Cincinnati’s defense in the offseason. The Bengals are better as a sum of their parts than they are as individuals, and they posted above average numbers for the second straight year. However, there isn’t a real playmaker on this side of the ball like we see with every other contender. Even Kansas City has players like Frank Clark and Chris Jones despite its struggles on defense, so Cincinnati needs to go out and get a player of that caliber.

Fortunately, they have the kicker position figured out as Evan McPherson had another strong season despite a couple hiccups. He made 100% of his field goals of 50 yards or more.

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.
