Tyler Boyd hasn’t received the most attention out of the Cincinnati Bengals wide receiving corps. Ja’Marr Chase has been a sensation, taking home the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award. Boyd says the fact that he’s less visible means the receiving room is filled with talent. Those receivers will face a stiff test against the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI.
Boyd and Tee Higgins have been solid contributors. Joe Burrow has a ton of weapons at his disposal. The numbers seem almost unfair.
In two seasons, Higgins has hauled in 1,999 receiving yards. Tee led the Bengals in receiving yards in the AFC Championship game. Tyler Boyd considers himself the best slot receiver in the NFL. Ja’Marr Chase tallied 1,455 yards and 13 touchdowns. Boyd talked about Cincinnati’s improvement at wideout and other positions during media availability yesterday.
“It’s evolved to the best since I’ve been here. The year when A.J. was still here, and it was me, A.J. and Tee, I thought that was going to be the year when we were going to break through to the point where we are now, but things didn’t go our way.
We were still kind of rebuilding, still trying to find all the missing pieces outside of just the receiving corps. … Once we got the addition of Chase and Trey (Hendrickson) and Mike Hilton and all the rest of those great guys starting to make plays to help us win. This year is the year we finally figured everything out.”
Tyler Boyd and the Cincinnati Bengals are looking to pull off a major upset in Super Bowl LVI. The Los Angeles Rams enter the game as favorites and many experts don’t think the Bengals offensive line can hold out against Von Miller and Aaron Donald. We’ll find out on Sunday if that is true.
