The Cincinnati Bengals have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the AFC.
Joe Burrow has helped bring this organization to life, and they are not showing signs of slowing down.
He has not only energized their offense, but their defense has also come to life, making for a well-rounded team.
Sam Hubbard, one of the team’s top defenders, gave a detailed answer about their chemistry in a recent segment of NFL Total Access.
“We got a great locker room, guys that love playing with each other,” Hubbard said.

This positive, winning culture is something that hasn’t always been the case for the Bengals.
Prior to Burrow joining the team, the last time the Bengals made the playoffs was in 2015 when they lost in the Wild Card round for the fifth consecutive year.
Now that they’ve made it to the AFC Championship in consecutive seasons, they’d like to keep the train moving.
As Hubbard mentioned, “It’s on us as players to keep that standard going.”
Burrow is one of several young quarterbacks that has made an instant impact on their team’s culture, bringing them out of a rut.
While he, Hubbard, and the rest of the team prepare for another season, they’ll have to keep being mindful of their competition.
Their now-rival Kansas City Chiefs have continued to make improvements, along with AFC competitors such as the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars.
If Hubbard’s comments are any indication, however, the team is more than ready to embrace the challenge, especially given their chemistry.NEXT: Bengals Have Provoking Reaction To New Browns Helmets
