Bengals ranked dead last in ESPN's franchise rankings

ESPN has released their annual ranking of the best franchises in the MLB, NBA, NFL and NHL, and the news is not good for the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals ranked last - number 122 out of 122 - in 'The Ultimate Standings.'

ESPN considers eight major categories in determining the rankings: bang for the buck, fan relations, ownership, affordability, stadium experience, players, coaches and title track.

The Bengals ranked 90th last year.

There was good news, however, for the Cincinnati Reds, who ranked 15th this year after ranking 43rd last year.

The Green Bay Packers topped this year's list, followed by the Tampa Bay Lightning, the New Orleans Saints, the Los Angeles Angels and the San Antonio Spurs.
