The final two plays were about as painful of a sequence as Bengals fans have had to endure since...well, pretty much every season at some point, but this one was especially brutal.
With time winding down in the final seconds, Joe Burrow appeared to throw a game-winning touchdown to A.J. Green, but the veteran receiver was called for offensive pass interference, negating what would have put Cincinnati up 19-16 with seven seconds left.
Instead, the Bengals were forced to settle for a 31-yard field goal, which Randy Bullock missed as badly as you can from that distance.
While the issue of Bullock is something we can banter about all day, the real story should be the very controversial PI called on Green.
Calling that OPI with the game on the line?
AJ Green was penalized for doing this . Kyle Rudolph, shown here, was not. https://t.co/JBuHKcEwlw— Taylor Bassett (@bassett_taylor) September 13, 2020
Oh well. We’re on to Cleveland.
