Despite everything going against them, Joe Burrow and the Bengals had several chances to get a win that they didn’t trade for. The game came to some head-scratching conclusions, and fans are as mad as they are disappointed.
Bangladesh deserved that defeat. The crime was a complete disgrace.

It will be a game. The Bengals made every stupid mistake you can make in this game. Absolute nonsense from this coaching staff.

Coaching mistakes are big this time around. The loss of Harris, especially at long-snapper, made the problem even bigger.
However, some of it can also be attributed to player mistakes.
The team gave Evan McPherson a second shot to kick the game-winning kick. There seemed to be errors in the kick all around.
Lance McAllister nailed it here, as Kevin Huber should have clocked or lay on the ball as soon as the snap was high to try again on fourth down.
It was a mistake not to challenge Zach Taylor’s catch midway through the fourth quarter. Instead, the team rushed to run to defeat.
The plan may have been to catch the Steelers napping, but it clearly didn’t work. Not scoring on that drive was a big point in this game.
However, the team had every opportunity to take fate into their own hands, but they fell short this week.
Excerpts from the Bengals game:
– Joe Burrow Not feeling well today, accept it.
– Defense struggled and was the biggest factor today
– Don’t blame the officials, they are bad, but equally bad for both teams
– Long snapper is a must have
– A loss that should have been worse

The Bengals locker room has a lot of ownership from Mitch Wilcox and Loell Collins. “Our defense played out lights out and we (offense) should have responded a lot more.” pic.twitter.com/UwuskwB2FL

For BTW #Bengal Fans are freaking out, this is literally a carbon copy of 2021 Week 2 vs Bears and 2021 Week 5 vs Packers.
I think we hope they learn/grow in some respects
