History of Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals began play in 1968 as an expansion team in the AFL before joining the NFL in 1970 during the AFL-NFL Merger. The team was founded by Paul Brown, who chose the name Bengals, in part due to the star of the city's world-renowned zoo mascot, the white Bengal Tiger. The Bengals have had some success in their team's history, most notably their two trips to the Super Bowl, though they lost both times to Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers.
The Cincinnati Bengals were a solid team in the 80s, but almost went two decades without a playoff appearance. That all changed when they drafted Carson Palmer, a Heisman trophy winner from USC in 2003. The duo of Carson Palmer and the enigmatic Chad "Ochocinco" Johnson led the team to two playoff appearances in 2005 and 2009. They again suddenly dropped off with a 4-12 season, and the team experienced a shakeup.
Immediately after that, the Bengals acquired another dynamic duo through the NFL draft. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green had an instant connection and the Bengals made the playoffs every year from 2011-2015. They have had a bunch of close calls, but Dalton has stumbled in critical moments, and the Cincinnati Bengals have become the first NFL team to lose in the opening round of the playoffs five years in a row.
