Giovani Bernard: Bengals strongest team in the division

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Running back Giovani Bernard doesn't feel that another team in the division is stronger than the Bengals.

To beat the man, the philosophical genius Rick Flair once said, you have to beat the man. Woo. A little corny? Somewhat cheesy? Yea. Sorry. However, that's also the reality from our little intra-divisional rivalries in the AFC North against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns.

And according to Giovani Bernard, the Cincinnati Bengals are the team to beat the AFC North.

Heading into his second season, Bernard believes the Bengals remain the best team in the AFC North. He was asked if there is a strong team within the division, rather than the than the Bengals.

"No, I don't think there is," the 22-year-old said. "There are great teams in the division. Every game in our division is a tough game. It's a tough division, so if you can get out of that healthy and ready, having a good record, I think you can make it (deep in the playoffs)."
