Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon says his team will wow football fans in the upcoming NFL season.
< p>Having lost 23-20 to the Los Angeles Rams in the last Super Bowl in February, the Ohio squad made some changes to its roster this offseason, particularly to its line at the 'offensive. Thus, tackle La’el Collins, guard Alex Cappa and center Ted Karras will arrive in Cincinnati to help a line that has allowed 70 quarterback sacks (including the playoffs) in 2021.
Consequently, thanks to increased protection, center Joe Burrow will have an easier time exploiting his assets and spotting his teammates, according to Mixon. With the presence of wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, who had 1,455 yards in his first career campaign, and other weapons like Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd, the Bengals are likely to raise many eyes and possibly touch the trophy Vince-Lombardi.
“To be honest, I think we might be the hottest 'show' in the NFL on Sundays,” Mixon told the CBS Sports California network. With the talent we have and the additions made, I think we're on our way to one hell of a season.”
“The best thing about here is that we've been here before and we know how to get back there, he added, referring to the league final. We have to follow the basic rules, one week at a time, and we will see what happens.”
Of course, the running back will also be a key element for his club. He had 1,519 yards on offense, including 1,205 on the ground, last year. His team finished atop the AFC North Division with a 10-7 record.
