In 2015, the Cincinnati Bengals had one of their best seasons in franchise history when they took home the AFC North Title. It was also the seventh time that they made the postseason under head coach Marvin Lewis. It has taken a long time for Lewis and the Bengals front office to establish the personnel that is on this roster right now.
The team is loaded with firepower on both sides of the ball. One particular member of the Bengals roster had a breakout season in 2015 in tight end Tyler Eifert. Eifert racked up 615 receiving yards and 13 touchdown receptions.
Another year has gone by, and the Bengals have still not made it pass the 1st round of the playoffs since 1990. With the personnel that is on the Bengals roster, there will increased pressure on this ball club to be in the Super Bowl conversation in 2016.
