New, comments

What did the national media, fans and Bengals players themselves have to say after Cincinnati’s 22-7 win over the Dolphins? Let’s check it out.

The Bengals easily beat the Dolphins to the tune of a 22-7 victory, though, the score could have been much higher for Cincinnati, had the team converted their redzone opportunities. Instead, Mike Nugent had quite the night, going five-for-five, including a 47-yard field goal.

Jeremy Hill had 71 yards on the ground while Giovani Bernard added 18 more. Andy Dalton threw for 296 yards and a touchdown. A.J. Green had quite a night, recording 173 yards; he was the recipient of Dalton's touchdown. There was a point in the game where Green had more yards than every Dolphins pass catcher combined. And, you may be surprised to know C.J. Uzomah was the second leading receiver with 45 yards on four catches.

But, not everyone is sold on the Bengals after Thursday’s primetime win, and while nearly the entire national media jumps to point out when the Bengals lose in primetime, no one seems to be mentioning that they won on Thursday in primetime (except us)... I got on that fast.

Here’s a rundown of more of the social media reaction and comments following the Bengals Thursday night primetime win over the Miami Dolphins.

But.... does he get the sack?

The Dolphins could NOT cover A.J. Green.

We agree, but, we’re happy about it... Since no one got hurt.

We’re also SO thankful for the resulting gifs. Thank you, Terrence Fede.
