In 2023, the Cincinnati Bengals’ season was not as successful as many had anticipated.

Their chances of making the playoffs were destroyed by a dismal start to the season and Joe Burrow’s wrist injury that ended the season halfway through.

The Bengals didn’t live up to the preseason hoopla, but there were a few positives: Chase Brown was a strong balance to Joe Mixon, and Jake Browning emerged as a reliable backup quarterback.

Unfortunately, that meant that for the eighth straight season, no Bengals player was named to the Associated Press All-Pro team. This was a setback for Cincinnati.

Trey Hendrickson, a defensive end who tied for second in the NFL with 17.5 sacks and third with 33 quarterback hits, was arguably the biggest letdown for Cincinnati.

Only T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers, a pass rusher, ended with more sacks than the other four edge rushers that were named to the All-Pro team.
