CINCINNATI — The Bengals are hoping to make a big leap this season after adding plenty of new faces over the past few months. 

Quarterback Joe Burrow is 100% cleared after suffering a devastating knee injury last season and the team added key around him including Riley Reiff and Ja'Marr Chase.

Bengals legend Chad Johnson believes the team is not only going to turn things around—he thinks they're going to win the division.

"Bengals, most definitely. It's not even close," Johnson said on ESPN when asked who he thinks will win the AFC North. "This is a common sense pick based on what Zac Taylor has done thus far. If we don't win the AFC North, I promise you I won't eat McDonald's."

Ochocinco is famous for a lot of things, including his love for McDonald's, is going out on a limb with this prediction.

Taylor is 6-25-1 since he was hired in 2019. The Bengals have more talent this season, but they're in one of the best divisions in the NFL. The Browns, Ravens and Steelers all made the playoffs last season. Meanwhile, the Bengals only one four games. They have a lot of ground to make up if they're going to accomplish that feat. 

Johnson was never afraid to make bold statements during his playing career. It's good to see that he still possesses that quality.
