Following the Bengals’ 34-7 loss to the Vikings, fans were largely silenced on social media.

There’s only so much Bengals fans can say when it comes to the team’s 5-9 record and the abysmal performance the team put on against the Vikings on Sunday.

What follows are social media reactions and thoughts following the Bengals’ loss in Minnesota, including information on Marvin Lewis’ future with the Bengals.

As you likely know now, there were reports on Sunday morning that Lewis will not remain the Bengals head coach in 2018. Immediately on Sunday afternoon in his post-game press conference, Lewis denied any such reports and said his future and the Bengals’ future is not up for discussion at this time.

Despite that, ESPN’s Adam Schefter seemed fully confident in reporting the news this morning. Additionally, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport said Lewis TOLD HIM last night that he would be interested in a front office job in 2018. Rapoport added Lewis and the team both thought it was best for them to move on in separate directions next year.

With that said, here’s your post-game social media roundup following the Bengals’ loss to the Vikings in Week 15.
