1. Cincinnati Bengals

Consecutive victories have kept the Cincinnati Bengals alive in a wide-open AFC North. Their 3-3 record isn't enough to jump off the bottom of the division, but they are only one game behind the Baltimore Ravens in first place.

The Bengals haven't looked great, but as long as they have Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase, this team can make a run.

It sure would help if they could start moving the ball on the ground. Cincinnati is averaging an awful 69.8 rushing yards per game. That needs to change if the Bengals plan to return to the Super Bowl this season.

Joe Mixon has 366 rushing yards and one touchdown on 96 attempts, an average of 3.8 yards per carry.

Aaron Jones could be the Bengals' missing piece. He can take pressure off of Joe Burrow and the passing game. Between Jones and Mixon, Cincinnati can lean on its rushing attack to keep the offense rolling, making life easier for Burrow, who has been dealing with a calf injury this season.

And if the Bengals can find a way into the postseason, Jones has the game-changing ability to help this team get back to the Super Bowl. Jones to the Bengals makes too much sense.
