Twitter had a field day as the Bengals were a two-point conversation away from overtime

Cincinnati lost their second preseason game, in, well, a very Bengal fashion. After securing a touchdown with 2:43 left, the Bengals, who lost heartbreaking games last season, failed to tie the Giants with a two-point conversation.

As the preseason goes, this game ultimately won’t matter.

What will matter is how many of the players performed when called upon. Time and time again players stepped up and proved that they belong on this 53-man roster, a roster that’ll be finalized late next week.

Although the Bengals lost 25-23, they saw terrific performances from Damion Willis, C.J. Uzomah and Jake Dolegala. Even Ryan Finley was once again solid, completing 14 of his 20 attempts.

That said, let’s take a look at some of the best tweets from the Giants-Bengals Thursday night game at Paul Brown Stadium.

Let’s kick it off with some highlights. First on our list is the greeting of two franchise-changing quarterbacks.

Secondly, we got to see a little touchdown dance from undrafted wide receiver Damion Willis, who seems more and more likely to crack the 53-man roster.

Our third highlight-centric tweet was all about sixth-round draft pick Rodney Anderson. At Oklahoma, he made defenders miss, and he’s taking that talent into the NFL, fooling two New York Giants on this one play.

Already, now, let’s get to some more analytical tweets about both the roster and how the team performed in their two-point loss.

The Bengals wide receiver battle is one of the most competitive on the team. With several set, Auden Tate might be the next to lock up his position.

Also, this QB battle just got interesting.

Is Jeff Driskel a lock? Will the Bengals keep four quarterbacks? Dolegala, a name many aren’t familiar with, was 10-for-12 with two touchdowns and 94 yards. He made a case for that third spot as Driskel has underperformed so far.

Now, it’s time for the funny tweets of the night.

It was a fun night. Thanks, Twitter.
