NFL Week 1: Social media reactions to Bengals’ shut out in season opener

Wow, that was bad. Twitter did not react kindly to the Bengals’ pitiful opening day showing.

The Cincinnati Bengals’ season opener was as disappointing as a Week 1 matchup could be. Not only did the Bengals lose, but they were shut out.

Zero points were scored in an atrocious effort by the Bengals’ offense. The defense actually wasn’t bad, considering the situations the offense continually put them in. However, the Bengals are now 0-1 and have a short week before hosting the Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football.

A national audience will be watching on Thursday and the Bengals’ offense better figure out how to look a hell of a lot better in Week 2 than it did in Week 1. That starts with Andy Dalton not throwing four interceptions and fumbling the ball.

Dalton was the biggest issue on Sunday in Cincinnati and the boo birds were out in full force. Expect the AJ McCarron fans to be making an appearance all around the internet this week. But don’t expect McCarron to be starting anytime soon in Cincinnati.

Here’s a roundup of social media reactions to the Bengals’ 20-0 loss to the Ravens in Week 1.
