I think the Bengals played just about the worst game you can possibly play and still have a legitimate shot at winning…then lost it in the final 60 seconds. So fitting. While their defense seems solid, even when it’s pulling people off the bench to replace injured and ejected starters, one of the most prolific offenses in the NFL on paper just can’t seem to put it together on the field. Good thing they fired Ken Zampese earlier in the season, that’s paid off so well.
Also, that ejection call on Burfict was total bullshit. Vontaze is an idiot and an asshole on the field, but he’s also the only player in the NFL that gets that call for that contact. Hell, the official pushed him out of the way to start with, Burfict’s contact with him immediately afterwards was incidental as he moved away.
Congrats to San Francisco. Sucks to be you Cleveland! ;-)
