It doesn’t feel real. The Cincinnati Bengals are headed to the Superbowl for the first time since 1989. This list consists of 10 key players that are making a difference on this exciting Bengals team. It is hard to pick favorites on this unselfish team; so, this list isn’t in any particular order.

  1. Ja’Marr Chase-  A rookie sensation. He was doubted ever since he got drafted and had one of the best rookie wide receiver years ever. He continues to impress and shut haters up.
  2. Tyler Boyd- Has been with the Bengals ever since 2016 and never gave up on this team. The Bengals brought in two wide receivers in the past two years who have gotten most of the attention, not only on the field, but also on social media; Boyd never complained.
  3. Joe Burrow-  Turned around the Franchise. He just ended the 31 year playoff win drought in Cincinnati and is not satisfied. No one can possibly hate him. He is sending the Bengals to a Superbowl in his second year.
  4. Mike Hilton- A very underrated player on the Bengals. He definitely gets overlooked because of all the stars on the team. He has a lockdown mindset on the defense and a huge interception in the divisional playoff game versus The Titans.
  5. Tee Higgins- Always a reliable target for Burrow. He often gets overlooked in the media by rookie sensation Jamar Chase, but has welcomed Chase to the franchise and continues to impress.
  6. Joe Mixon- All Star who plays with so much emotion. He makes the team’s chemistry so much better. He loves Cincinnati and the whole community.
  7. Sam Hubbard- Grew up in Cincinnati and loves the community. One of the hardest working players on the defense.
  8. C.J. Uzomah- An unwritten captain of not only the Bengals offense, but the whole team. C.J. is another player that gets overlooked by the All Stars on the team. He always gets the job done and has brought a fearless mentality to this Bengals team.
  9. Vonn Bell- Became a Cincinnati legend with his big hit in the Bengals versus Steelers game, forcing a fumble against Tik Tok star Juju Smith-Shuster. He made a huge play in the Bengals vs. Chiefs regular season game as well.
  10. Jessie Bates- Always fired up. On the first play of the divisional playoff game versus the Titans, he intercepted Ryan Tannehill to instantly flip the momentum that the Bengals would never lose. I hope the Bengals give him a contract extension.
