The Cincinnati Bengals have a solid defense, 2 really tough receivers to defend and solid players all across the field in Madden 17.

We’ve got the full Madden School team breakdown for the Bengals below.

Team: Cincinnati Bengals

Offensive Strategy: Balanced.  You have 2 extremely dominant receiving options in A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert but you also have a solid running game with Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill.  Make sure to mix it up a little bit instead of always targeting your main playmakers.

Defensive Strategy: Aggressive 4-3.  The Bengals have had a good Madden defense for what seems like a decade and this year is no different.  You have guys who can stop the run, guys who can get after the quarterback, and a lot of depth in the secondary.

Impact Players: QB Andy Dalton, HB Giovani Bernard, HB Jeremy Hill, WR A.J. Green, TE Tyler Eifert, LT Andy Whitworth, RG Kevin Zeitler, LE Carlos Dunlap, DT Geno Atkins, MLB Karlos Dansby, ROLB Vontaze Burfict, CB Adam Jones, CB Dre Kirkpatrick, CB Darqueze Denard, CB William Jackson II, SS George Iloka

Strengths: Defense, especially depth at cornerback.  The Bengals don’t have a Patrick Peterson or Richard Sherman type but they have 4 guys who are extremely good Madden cornerbacks.  Also, the A.J. Green/Tyler Eifert combination will be a nightmare to defend.

Weaknesses: The Bengals really don’t appear to have any glaring weaknesses in Madden 17.  If there is one thing that most Madden players would upgrade about their team it would probably be to have that 1 dominant running back instead of having 2 complimentary running backs.

Overview: Heading into Madden NFL 17, the Bengals seem pretty similar to how they were last year.  A team that is right on the edge of becoming a top Madden team but just isn’t quite there yet.
