Bengals 2021 Season Preview

The Bengals didn’t have the revival they expected last season after taking Joe Burrow No. 1 overall. The record-setting LSU quarterback tore his ACL and MCL in November but worked relentlessly to get back for the start of the year.

Burrow was strong out of the gate, passing for 2,688 yards, 13 touchdowns and five interceptions. With some new weapons in place, Burrow expects his Bengals to compete.

“Make the playoffs, win the division, be competitive with every team we play,” Burrow told ESPN of his expectations for the squad. “We really need to get better at closing out games. We had leads in the fourth quarter of something like seven or eight games last year, and we ended up losing all of them. So we need to be better down the stretch so we can win those games and get into the playoffs.”

Head coach Zac Taylor is very much on the hotseat, going just 6-25-1 through his first two seasons.

“There’s a lot of new faces, everybody has their different characteristics in them, but they all bring something positive to the table,” running back Joe Mixon told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “And I don’t feel like we have anybody that’s here to hurt the team. And we’re doing everything that we can to just be one. And to be honest, I feel like Zac’s done a great job with trying to change that.

“And I feel like everybody that’s been here and that’s been here now, everybody’s buying into what he’s preaching. And we know Zac wants to win and we want to win for Zac. So everything’s playing a part and it’s coming around. And I feel like now’s the time.”

The Bengals selected Ja’Marr Chase with the No. 5 overall pick in this year’s draft, giving Burrow another familiar weapon to work with. Chase had a tough preseason with drops and is under the microscope considering the Bengals could have used to pick to provide Burrow more protection up front.

“I don’t want to blame it on me sitting on my butt the whole year, but it probably had something to do with it, of course,” Chase said. “There’s a bigger ball adjustment, so I don’t want to make excuses but I’ve just got to be a pro and make the catch.”
