5-0 tale of the tape: 2015 Bengals vs. 1988 Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals are 5-0 for the first time since 1988, which also happens to be the last season they went to the Super Bowl.

Andy Dalton has led the franchise to four straight postseasons, which have all ended after one game. An impressive comeback victory over Seattle on Sunday has many thinking that this squad is different and ready to get over the playoff hump.

The 1988 Bengals were the highest scoring team in the league, led by Boomer Esiason's no-huddle offense and a rookie running back named Elbert "Ickey" Woods and his 15 touchdowns. They were one late Joe Montana heroic drive from a Super Bowl title.

Let's see how this year's team stacks up against its predecessors from 27 years ago.

The 1988 team wins 5-3-1. That doesn't mean this year's unit can't make it to the Super Bowl, but Dalton and company should be able to finally break into the playoff win column.
