Social media reactions to Bengals’ season finale vs Ravens

The Bengals’ season is over after beating the Ravens 27-10 at home in Paul Brown Stadium to kick off the new year!

The Bengals’ season is officially over. Next week, the Bengals will not have the opportunity to lose in the first round of the playoffs, for the first time in six years.

The Bengals did win their final game of the season and first game of the 2017 calendar year. So, Happy New Year, Bengals!

There was a mixed bag of reactions following the Bengals’ win over the Ravens, capped off by a huge day from Rex Burkhead and a four catch, 82 yard day from Cody Core. Maybe Core really is the Bengals’ No. 2 wide receiver of the future.

Whether Burkhead can be a No. 1 or 2 running back for the Bengals next year will be determined by free agency as Burkhead becomes a free agent for the first time in his young NFL career in March.

Rookie Tyler Boyd also had a nice day, playing mostly in the slot. He had two catches for 39 yards and added a 15-yard run on a reverse in the first quarter.

Marvin Lewis was happy after the win, as were the players who are surely sick of losing, after doing that nine times this season, plus tying once, which is essentially a loss.

Here are the social media reactions to the Bengals’ win over the Ravens to end the 2016 season.

The final game of the football season is always brutal, win or lose. You look around the locker room and say to...

And with that, the Browns are on the clock with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Happy offseason!
