On Tuesday we posted a story regarding the percentage of passes being caught, combined, by Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens. A quick recap.

Combined, the Bengals starting wide receivers only recorded a combined 52% completion percentage of 265 passes thrown their way.

Individually, Owens has only caught 52% of the passes this year with Chad Ochocinco hauling in 53% of the passes thrown to him. There is a variety of reasons as for the low percentage, ranging from bad passes, deeper routes, being covered by the opposing team's best cover guys, etc..

Regardless. How do both Bengals receivers compare to the league? We ranked them. There are 24 wide receivers in the NFL that's been targeted 100 times or more this season. Three receivers (Larry Fitzgerald, Brandon Lloyd, Mike Williams of Tampa Bay) have a receiving percentage below that of Chad's and Owens'. Of those receivers, 14 have caught over 60% of the passes with one, Wes Welker, hauling in an amazing 71%.
