2013 OPPONENT LOOK: CINCINNATI BENGALS

Posted by Kevin Bowen on February 23, 2013 – 8:00 am

The 2013 campaign marks Marvin Lewis’ 11th as the head football coach of the Cincinnati Bengals.

After back-to-back playoff appearance, Lewis has the Bengals on the cusp of a deep playoff run.

The last two seasons the Bengals have dropped road Wild Card contests to the Houston Texans.

Heading into the offseason, Lewis is looking to get over the hump of four Wild Card defeats during his 10 seasons with Cincinnati.

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis addresses the media on Friday morning. Lewis and the Bengals will welcome the Colts for a regular season meeting next year.

“We’ve had opportunities and haven’t played as well in those games. I didn’t think that would be an issue for us,” Lewis said of past playoff disappointments.

“We played the last half of the season like those were playoff games. We knew that if we lose the games we were going to be out of it. We put wins together but didn’t go down in Houston and play well. We were relaxed but didn’t have that resolve or attack.”

Third-year starting quarterback Andy Dalton showed steady improvement this past year, improving in virtually every statistical category.

Dalton has transformed from a second-round draft pick into a starting NFL quarterback from day one and has led his team to playoff berths each year..

“(Dalton) continued to grow and become the leader of the team. That’s what I challenged him throughout the year to do and he did a great job of responding to that,” Dalton said.

“As we go into Year 3 there are some things and some plays that we continue to leave out there. We want to get better at that”

Young talent for the Bengals extends to both sides of the ball and at virtually every position.

Lewis said that in order to get over that playoff hump, the focus this offseason has to be on ‘everyone.’

“I have a lot of disappointing losses. I remember them more than the wins,” Lewis said.

“I feel confident with our guys. We’ll be a better team this season. Guys realize you don’t get to start off where you left off. We’re going to have change but whatever that is we’re all going to have to get better.”
