New, comments

Bengals players rightfully celebrated

The Bengals took to social media to share their thoughts after taking home a tough win in their first game of the season. Here’s a collection of player posts reacting to a crazy afternoon in New Jersey in which the Bengals pulled away with a 23-22 victory.

Chris Lewis-Harris and Buster Skrine were teammates at Tennessee-Chattanooga. They gathered on the field for a picture after the game. How many NFL games do you think have included two players from Tennessee-Chattanooga?

great team win today! @busterskrine face says it all #whodey #utc

Dennard was happy about the win, hopefully he can play in Week 2 after being inactive this week.

Jeremy Hill is dropping his in-game touchdown celebrations this year and letting you know, he’s just getting started on the 2016 season after his 31 yard, 1 touchdown day against New York.

Brandon LaFell had a great first game as a Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver.

Rex Burkhead had his brother in attendance at the game. Burkhead wasn’t involved much on offense, but he was active on special teams.

First year defensive tackle DeShawn Williams was inactive for Week 1 but could see action as the season progresses. He’s the backup to Geno Atkins.

Dre Kirkpatrick praised A.J. Green for his monster day on Sunday.

Peko snapped this picture as the buses were leaving East Rutherford.

George Iloka was a big factor on defense in Week 1.

Rey Maualuga might be the Bengals’ go-to flag carrier. He also carried a flag onto the field last year with Vontaze Burfict after the Paris attacks in November 2015.

It was a great team win for Cincinnati on Sunday afternoon and next up is the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2. Who Dey!
