Cincinnati Bengals

Now we take look at the Cincinnati Bengals. They are still not a good team, but we are getting better in terms of the team overall.

The Bengals franchise has some decent pieces to the team. Joe Mixon is a decent running back and he will have an 89 overall at launch and the Bengals also have A.J. Green on offense as an 88 overall. The Cincinnati Bengals used to have decent franchise, but ever since their loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2015 AFC Wild Card game, they have really gone down the tubes.

If you take a look back at the history of the Cincinnati Bengals, the last time they won a playoff game was all the way back in 1990. 30 years of not winning a playoff game has to be pretty frustrating, but they have a couple of players that can be built around in Joe Mixon and A.J. Green. Obviously sooner is better than later, but they still aren’t going to be a top choice to play as them in Madden 21.

Obviously it is not impossible to win with any team no matter how bad their overall is, but the Bengals still would not be my online team of choice. Maybe in a couple of years once the team builds and grows a little more, but for the time being, I think most people are going to take a pass on them as well.
