The Bengals finally won a game!
*Excuse me while I stop to cheer for a few minutes!*
OK; I’m back.
That was fun. I mean, maybe not for the ‘Bengals suck; let’s just lose them all’ crowd, but I enjoy watching the Bengals win games.
So here we are with some time to enjoy the win over the Browns and hope for another against the Bills next Sunday when the team returns home to Paul Brown Stadium for the first time since Ken Zampese was fired as offensive coordinator.
The social media reactions after the Bengals’ win were mostly positive and there were a lot of great statistics and notes to weed through.
Here’s a look at the social media reactions and analysis following the Bengals’ win over the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium.
Every week, Jeremy Hill gets 12 snaps and 7 touches— Goodberry (@JoeGoodberry) October 2, 2017
If I'm the defense, I'm going right for Hill when he's in the game
(They already are)
Last Sunday, about 180 NFL players didn't stand for the national anthem. Today? 52. pic.twitter.com/6Vi456hEg5— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) October 2, 2017
Watching video back... #Bengals laughing, asking Carl Lawson on sidelines: "Did you learn your lesson?"— Jeremy Rauch (@FOX19Jeremy) October 1, 2017
He wasn't wearing a mouth guard.
Carl Lawson got his teeth busted, but remained in good spirits. pic.twitter.com/jiFQcABu1D— Sam Greene (@SGdoesit) October 1, 2017

.@Carlos_Dunlap got jobbed again on the stat sheet (IMO) - they keep taking sacks from him. Not sure how he didn't get one early.— Jim Owczarski (@JimOwczarski) October 1, 2017
Best Thing About getting 1 is opportunity to get number 2! On to Bills. #WhoDey— Carlos Dunlap (@Carlos_Dunlap) October 1, 2017
#Browns coach Hue Jackson on fans filing out early: "I understand our fans leaving. I probably would have, too."— Richard Skinner (@Local12Skinny) October 1, 2017

I'm still saying there's a chance that the Bengals go 12-4 and win the SB... or make a competitive playoff run. https://t.co/b8ANgqZ9Tf— Josh Kirkendall (@Josh_Kirkendall) October 1, 2017
Dalton was pretty good today throwing the ball. Had moments of pocket panic, still not hitting vertical throws. This is what he is. pic.twitter.com/fC1xvUc8Vn— Jake Liscow (@Jake_NFL) October 2, 2017
Let’s end it with this...
