Bengals 1995 Summary

The Bengals traded up in the draft's first round for the first time, and selected Penn State RB Ki-Jana Carter with the No. 1 overall pick, obtained from Carolina. Carter suffered a knee injury in the third preseason game and missed his entire rookie season. Nonetheless, the Bengals made a dramatic improvement over the previous four years, going 7-9 with five losses by just three points each. QB Jeff Blake, WR Carl Pickens and PK Doug Pelfrey posted record Bengal seasons, and Blake and Pickens went on to start in the Pro Bowl.
