Social media reactions to Bengals’ primetime loss to Giants

Another week, another round of negative reactions to the Bengals’ performance.

After the fifth Bengals loss in nine games this season, fans are tired of Marvin Lewis’ act. The number of incredibly talented and above average players on the Bengals’ roster is thought to be great. But, through nine games, we’ve seen a group of players who hardly appear to be even average NFL players (with the exception of a few including A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert).

What happened since last year’s Bengals team launched off to an 8-0 start? At this point a year ago, Cincinnati was 8-1 and sitting pretty with the AFC North lead. Currently, no team in the AFC North has more than five wins, but instead of taking advantage of that situation on Monday Night Football when playing against the Giants, the Bengals lost by one point and brought their record to 3-5-1. It feels weird even typing that. Every week this season, we’ve tried to find reasons to be hopeful regarding this Bengals team, but at this point, it’s hard to continue doing that.

Lewis’ clock management, in-game decision making and overall coaching needs to be seriously questioned in this short week leading up to the Bengals’ Week 11 game against the Bills.

Here’s a look at the largely depressing social media reactions following the Bengals’ loss to the Giants on Monday Night Football.
