Heading into the 2018 season there’s been little discussion about the Cincinnati Bengals playoff failures. That’s because they haven’t been to the postseason since 2015 and the likelihood of them getting there this year is remote. But Marvin Lewis still has a job and he’s near the top of the list for the first coach fired in 2018. The Bengals won the tough AFC North just three seasons ago, extending their club record of consecutive playoff appearances to five. However, they bottomed out the last two years, finishing ahead of only the lowly Browns.

The departure of Andrew Whitworth prior to last season left a gaping hole on the offensive line and the Bengals never did fix it. Poor line play all-around was a big part of why Andy Dalton and the offense struggled so mightily. It also didn’t help that 2017 first-rounder John Ross didn’t do much and Tyler Eifert dealt with injuries – again.

After getting shut out in last season’s opener and scoring three field goals the next game, the team moved Bill Lazor to interim offensive coordinator. There were better results, but the personnel were flawed. Lazor got the permanent gig during the offseason and the club went about retooling the offense. Cordy Glenn was acquired from Buffalo and Billy Price was the first pick as the offensive line will have new faces. The hope is that Ross finds himself and takes pressure of the Dalton to A.J. Green connection, which was about all the Bengals had last season.

The expectations are not high for the 2018 season, and that could be perfect for the Bengals. Many of the same pieces are in place from the teams that won at least 10 games in four consecutive seasons and reached the playoffs in five straight between 2011 and 2015. An improved line will help the league’s worst offense in terms of yards per game, and the defense will be good with Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap rushing the passer. The Bengals stockpiled defenders in the draft with the hopes that an infusion of youth can help the group. Help is needed in the back end and Jessie Bates, Davontae Harris and Darius Phillips, all taken in the first five rounds, will get a chance to help in the secondary.

Despite their recent postseason failures, there was some success during the 1980s. The Bengals twice won the AFC and played in their only Super Bowls during the 1981 and 1988 seasons, posting a franchise record 12 wins both times. But until Marvin Lewis took over, the playoffs were few and far between.

Cincinnati was the last franchise to join the AFL prior to the 1970 merger, beginning play during the 1968 season. The club qualified for the playoffs in its first NFL season, winning the AFC Central title with an 8-6 record. However, the Bengals were shutout 17-0 by the Baltimore Colts in their first playoff game. They reached the postseason three times in their first six NFL seasons, but it took until their Super Bowl run in 1981 to win their first playoff game. They would eventually lose to the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XVI.

The Bengals reached the postseason again in the strike-shortened 1982 season, the first and only time with back-to-back playoff showings until a five-year run started under Lewis in 2011. Lewis is the franchise’s all-time winningest coach and opens the 2018 season as the second-longest tenured coach since his hire in 2003. But the team has yet to win a playoff game under his watch, getting bounced in the Wild Card round seven times since 2005.
