With Burrow, Bengals Look To Improve On 2019 Fiasco< < Back to
CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — After historically bad first season under coach Zac Taylor — only second team in club history to go 2-14 — the Bengals went out of character and splurged in free agency to overhaul a horrid defense.
They also brought in a new face for the franchise in Joe Burrow, coming off one of the best passing performances in NCAA history.
They haven’t won a playoff game since the 1990 season, fifth-longest streak of futility in NFL history, and they played in a half-empty stadium last season as fans gave up.
Adding Burrow makes them relevant again, though there are still significant questions about Taylor’s coaching ability.
