The Bengals lost 49-13 to the Ravens. There is really no sugarcoating how bad the game was. Cincinnati came out looking like a winless team, and Baltimore looked like one of the hottest teams in the NFL.
Here are some of the best reactions from the Bengals’ loss, and make sure to stick around to the end to the best memes and GIF reactions as well.
The bad of Ryan Finley’s first start
Ryan Finley got his first start in place of Andy Dalton this week. He had some good plays, but ultimately he looked like a rookie starting for a bad offense.

Not exactly an electric start to the Ryan Finley Era.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) November 10, 2019
The #Bengals have yet to score a touchdown on their opening drive this season.— Tyler Dragon (@TheTylerDragon) November 10, 2019
let the finley blasting begin lol our team has sucked for so long surely we as bengals fan can muster up a little more patience to see what this dude has lol— . (@awrahmes) November 10, 2019
This is what you draw up after a bye week?— Chris Roling (@Chris_Roling) November 10, 2019
...And a few plays later, Finley throws a pick-six. Predictable route and throw, @John__Sheeran & I said a couple of weeks ago that inaccuracy wouldn’t be the cause of Finley possible throwing INTs, but rather these type of plays & those that expose arm strength. pic.twitter.com/h8hx7lV34W— Anthony Cosenza (@CJAnthonyCUI) November 10, 2019
#Bengals coach Zac Taylor was running down the sideline in an apparent attempt to call timeout in the red zone. Instead, ball snapped and Ryan Finley serves up a pick-6 to Marcus Peters. 28-3 #Ravens in the second quarter. Yeesh.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) November 10, 2019
Finely telegraphed that interception— Nick Manchester (@NickManchester9) November 10, 2019
stared down that throw like it was a duel— john sheeran (@John__Sheeran) November 10, 2019
Pick six my Marcus Peters. It's getting ugly...#Bengals— Tyler Dragon (@TheTylerDragon) November 10, 2019
Maybe Finley could get a giant neon sign telling everyone ahead of time exactly where the ball is going. That’s basically what he did here. https://t.co/VzCMJ7bKGX— Craig Mergenthal (@CraigMergenthal) November 10, 2019
The Good from Finley’s start
That isn’t to say Finley was all bad. He had some rookie hiccups sure, but overall he did some good things e haven’t seen from the quarterback position in awhile. This was probably one of the rookies’ toughest tests for the rest of the season. Hopefully he can grow from his premiere.
Gotta like this. Avoids the sack, scans the field and it creates a huge play. Risky to throw all the way back to the other hash, but a really nice play by Finley. pic.twitter.com/jtw9hEsPIk— Anthony Cosenza (@CJAnthonyCUI) November 10, 2019
keeping your eyes up, what a concept— john sheeran (@John__Sheeran) November 10, 2019
Yep, that's where Finley is already better than Dalton.— Chris Roling (@Chris_Roling) November 10, 2019

Touchdown Tyler Eifert. Nice layup for Finley.— JG (@JoeGoodberry) November 10, 2019
Ryan Finley remembered who @tylereifert was in the red zone. It’s a miracle. It’s about time we utilize him, one of the most talented tight ends in the nfl that we refuse to throw to.— TJ Martin (@T_Martin_76) November 10, 2019
Hey this Ryan Finley guy is moving the ball pretty well against the Baltimore defense huh?— Blake Pace (@BlakeAndrewPace) November 10, 2019
Finley's speed, agility and pocket presence is saving his body from big shots.— Baltimore Beatdown (@BmoreBeatdown) November 10, 2019
The Ravens pants the Bengals defense
It wasn’t a good day to be a Cincinnati fan. Baltimore knew they were the better team, and they let the entire NFL know these two teams weren’t close to the same level. The Ravens had several plays on the day that really highlighted how low the Bengals have gotten.
1:07 ET and the Bengals are down a TD. Incredible.— Chris Roling (@Chris_Roling) November 10, 2019
Good news for the Bengals' defense: Only 247 yards allowed, ending a three-game streak of 300+.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) November 10, 2019
Bad news: The drive chart for BAL -- TD, TD, TD, end of half.
i’m not even watching the bengals, i’m watching lamar— john sheeran (@John__Sheeran) November 10, 2019
If Bill Belichick couldn't figure out this offense, why should we expect Lou Anarumo to do it?— Nick Manchester (@NickManchester9) November 10, 2019
Baltimore just ran an option play with Lamar Jackson pitching the ball to Robert Griffin III.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) November 10, 2019
Yes, you read that correctly.

That's a highlight we will see on Jackson's reel for the rest of his career, and that is saying something. https://t.co/E9sPnHbwcg— President of John Ross fanclub (@PatrickJudis) November 10, 2019

Looking around at #Bengals fans from the field.— Jeremy Rauch (@FOX19Jeremy) November 10, 2019
They don’t look mad.
They don’t look sad.
They don’t look upset.
They just look bored.
Small chants of “Andy” seeming to come from the remaining 47 Bengals fans in attendance.— Anthony Cosenza (@CJAnthonyCUI) November 10, 2019
This team is losing an entire generation of fans right now— Jake (@Jake_NFL) November 10, 2019
Fans around the league reacting to the Bengals beating
Fans made plenty of jokes at Cincinnati’s expense. They couldn’t help but tell it like it is, and how can w argue when the Bengals put on another stinker at home following a bye week.
The Bengals should just hand the ball off for the remainder of the game so we can all just go rake leaves or go home.— Mike Preston (@MikePrestonSun) November 10, 2019

Misery loves company. We still have seven weeks to get through this season, and if laughing through the pain is your thing, then take in this section. Indulge in the hilarity of our situation and the joke that is Cincinnati.
