We have good news and bad news. The bad news is the Bengals dropped to 0-8 on the year. The good news is we all get a week off from Bengals football as they head into their bye week.
This week was disappointing, but what wasn’t disappointing was the social media reactions.
Cooper Kupp makes the Bengals defense look silly
Cincinnati’s defense struggling isn’t a new revelation. What is kind of new is how dominant one wide receiver was on Sunday. Cooper Kupp couldn’t of had a bigger day if the Bengals decided to leave him uncovered ever play. He had 220 receiving yards, and most of that came in the first half of the game.

The Bengals should have 5 guys covering Kupp on every third down at this point.— President of John Ross fanclub (@PatrickJudis) October 27, 2019
How is it possible a guy who just racked up 165 yards in a half is left that wide open on a third-and-5 slant? Staggering.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) October 27, 2019
If the #Bengals don't know yet, Tony McRae can't cover Cooper Kupp.— Tyler Dragon (@TheTylerDragon) October 27, 2019

Cooper Kupp: 220
Yes, this is a real stat.
Cooper Kupp's 220 receiving yards tied for the third-highest by a Bengals opponent in franchise history. Matches Buffalo's James Lofton game on Oct. 21, 1991.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) October 27, 2019
Cincinnati packed their struggle show for London
The Bengals offense and defense had familiar struggles all game long. There were bright spots, but there were plenty of times when it was hard to forget that you were watching an 0-7 team that was sprinting towards 0-8.
It looks like Goff is seeing ghosts too. Not spooky ghosts like Darnold though. More like friendly ghosts that don't have physical bodies you can run through, or pass for 273 yards through— Nick Manchester (@NickManchester9) October 27, 2019
Unacceptable to give up 20 yards on a 3rd-and-10 with the opponent pinned inside their own five-yard line.— Anthony Cosenza (@CJAnthonyCUI) October 27, 2019
This is the third straight week the Bengals have allowed 300+ yards in the first half.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) October 27, 2019
Bengals trail 17-10 at the break.
On the last touchdown drive by the Rams, Lou Anarumo has Sam Hubbard drop in coverage and have Rookie LB Germaine Pratt cover WR Josh Reynolds. Mmmk— Anthony Cosenza (@CJAnthonyCUI) October 27, 2019

The Bengals are awful on two continents— Nick Pastura (@SenorNickyP) October 27, 2019
When you drop 3 INTs and turnover on downs twice within the opponent's 10, you'll lose by 14 every time.— JG (@JoeGoodberry) October 27, 2019
Bengals were 13-point dogs this week. They lost 24-10. Vegas isn’t dumb.— Anthony Cosenza (@CJAnthonyCUI) October 27, 2019
Second time this season the Bengals' offense has been blanked in the second half. Also happened on Week 4 against the Steelers.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) October 27, 2019
GIFs to make you feel something
The Bengals are 0-8. It is hard for any of us to keep our chin up about this season. At the very least we can all share a good laugh on Sunday together through the form of GIFs at our favorite team’s expense.
