The Cincinnati Bengals are getting ready to kick off the season against the Los Angeles Chargers this Sunday, and an opposing defender is giving high praise to Cincy’s skill position players.
The Bengals will take the field Sunday with a rookie QB in Joe Burrow who didn’t get the opportunity to take any preseason snaps.However, they will also be taking the field with one of the best skill position groups in the NFL, and Chargers CB Casey Hayward agrees.
On Thursday, Hayward said that the Bengals are one of the best skill groups they will face all season. He even said they are right up there with the Kansas City Chiefs.

When you look at the skill positions, the Bengals are loaded with A.J. Green, Joe Mixon, Tyler Boyd, John Ross, Auden Tate, Giovani Bernard, and Tee Higgins.
That group is no doubt a top 10 skill position group in the NFL and could be closer to top five
Hopefully, when the ball is kicked off Sunday, the Bengals’ offensive line will give Joe Burrow enough time to get the ball to these play-makers, because the Bengals’ offense is loaded with talent.
The Bengals and Chargers will kickoff at 4:05 pm EST Sunday from Paul Brown Stadium.
