The 1986 Cincinnati Bengals season was the team's 19th year in professional football and its 17th with the National Football League. The Bengals were one of two teams with ten wins[1] that failed to make the AFC playoffs in 1986.

On December 12, 2011, Sports Illustrated published an article about the current lives and issues faced by the men who comprised that roster 25 years later, which was the first time the magazine had looked at injury and aging issues through the prism of a single team's entire roster. [2]

But no matter their current hardships, the vast majority say they have no regrets."
