Cincinnati Bengals

Overall Rating: 77

Team Strategy

 

The Bengals don't have overwhelming power in their roster. However, the few playmakers they do have pack quite a punch and are some of the best in Madden 19. Using these players is crucial for success.

Go-to Plays

Gun Bunch – Z Spot N Go

Your primary options are the HB flat and the Sideline corner route. Look to the stop 'n go route as a quick throw option against zone blitzes.

Shotgun Doubles – Inside Zones

Inside zones can be run up the middle or off the edge of the line of scrimmage.

Shotgun Doubles – Y Cross

The TE deep cross is first option against all coverages. The deep in will be your second option.

Scouting Report

Offensive Scouting Report

A.J. Green is one of the best WRs in Madden 19. Great Catch ratings make him super reliable, and he's fantastic in traffic. Opposite of him is John Ross, one of the game's fastest players with 97 Speed. That with his 93 Juke make Ross lethal with the ball, but his low Catch and Route Running scores make him a feast-or-famine target. 

If you're looking for a QB that exemplifies the term "okay," it's Andy Dalton. Knowing where your checkdowns are is essential here, so keep an eye out for your tight ends in Tyler Eifert and Tyler Kroft. Both are solid, but Eifert is the superior pass option.

The HB pairing of Giovani Bernard and Joe Mixon is fairly even skill wise. Mixon has a bit more power with Trucking, while Bernard is more shifty with Spins and Jukes. Bernard's Route Running gives him the edge as a pass catcher, though. 

Defensive Scouting Report

Geno Atkins is one of the best defensive tackles in the game, and he’s paired with Carlos Dunlap on the line. These guys provide a solid one-two-punch to help force some bad throws, but mostly, they're solid run stoppers.

The Bengals' big hitter has long been Vontaze Burfict. His 94 Hit Power is enough to stop anything in its tracks. Hit Stick please.

William Jackson is a gifted athlete, and it shows in his base stats. With the right User control, Jackson can be a real game-changer. His 93 Speed is the fastest on the defensive side, and his Catch scores and ball carrier moves scream pick-six potential.
