CINCINNATI — The Bengals are hoping to turn things around in 2021 after five straight losing seasons.
Head coach Zac Taylor is looking to prove himself after going 6-25-1 in his first two years with the team.
Despite posting an awful record, the Bengals have been competitive in most of their games. They've held a lead in 24 of their last 32 contests. No team has led in more matchups in a two-year span but won fewer games than Cincinnati [since at least 2000] according to NFL analyst Warren Sharp.
On one hand, it shows that the Bengals are playing hard and could be close to turning the corner. At the same time, it's easy to wonder if coaching is a big reason why they've struggled to pull out some of their close games.
Taylor is 2-13-1 in one score games since being named head coach of the Bengals prior to the 2019 season.
The organization made the decision to bring him back for a third campaign. They added multiple defensive players in free agency and are expected to take multiple key offensive players in the draft. If they do that, then there's no reason why Taylor shouldn't have more success in year three.
