We're in the midst of one of the greatest periods of success in Bengals franchise history.
Four straight playoff berths and a great shot at a fifth aren't an accident. Cincinnati has many players who've helped contribute to the unprecedented level of success this franchise is having. There are also several guys on the verge of career milestones for their time with the Bengals. It's time for a look at which players are closing in on such milestones on offense.
*Andy Dalton is already the single-season passing yards leader in Bengals history after throwing for 4,293 yards in the 2013 season. However, he's on pace for 4,696 this season, which would break his previous mark by more than 400 yards.
*Dalton is also on pace to set the single-season mark for passer rating (116.1) of any player who's attempted for at least 200 passes. Carson Palmer currently holds that mark with a 101.1 rating in 2005. It is worth noting that Boomer Esiason finished the 1997 season with a 106.9 rating, but only played in seven games and attempted 186 passes.
*Speaking of Palmer, Dalton is now tied with him for the third-most wins in Bengals history. Palmer is 46-51-0 in seven seasons while Dalton is 46-23-1. Daltoon should break this record, hopefully next week.
*Dalton is also the single-season leader in touchdown passes (33) set in 2013. He's on pace to throw 37 this season. That would also be the 20th most in NFL history in a single season.
*Tyler Eifert is on pace for 75 catches and 912 yards this season. That would break Dan Ross' single-season marks of 70 catches and 910 yards by a tight end respectively.
*Eifert is also on pace for 16 touchdown grabs this season. That would be a Bengals franchise record for most touchdown catches by any position in one season.
*A.J. Green is currently on pace to finish 2015 with 1,416 yards. His previous career-high is 1,426 set in 2013. Chad Johnson holds the first and second-highest marks in franchise history (1,440 in 2007 and 1,432 in 2007).
*Green is currently fifth in Bengals history in touchdown catches (38). He is three touchdowns shy of tying Eddie Brown for fourth place.
*Green also ranks eighth in franchise history in receiving yards (5,405) His current pace this season would put him at 6,290 career yards, which would be the fifth most in team history. He would pass T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Darnay Scott, and Eddie Brown in the process.
