The best Twitter reactions from Bengals whipping the Lions

You have to check out the tweets of the game, because they may not get beat this season.

The Cincinnati Bengals left no doubt which big cat team reigns supreme when they blew out the Detroit Lions.

This was the first game in what feels like a lifetime that didn’t have some amount of drama in the final minutes for a Bengals win, but you could tell fans were relieved to have a little more relaxed day out.

Chris Evans big day

The rookie running back had quite a homecoming in Michigan where he played college football. He got his shot with Samaje Perine out due to COVID-19 regulations. The young back did not disappoint.

His fantastic day started with a touchdown reception on the opening drive, which was the first opening drive touchdown for Cincinnati this season. He looked every bit like a wide receiver on the play when he left the linebacker in the dust.

Evans also had several more splash plays after his touchdown. However, it was a play that won’t show up in the box score that may have secured him the spot behind Joe Mixon permanently.

Has the rookie earned himself a bigger role?

Cincinnati spins offensive wheels early in Detroit

The Bengals offense started hot with a touchdown, but then it took them the rest of the half to add a field goal. The frustration was very valid from fans watching. It especially makes it more confusing when we all watched Cincinnati’s offense go off in the second half against a defense they should’ve been steamrolling earlier.

Ja’Marr Chase again provides the spark

Whenever we have seen the Bengals offense start to hit their stride, it has usually followed a huge play by the rookie wide receiver. This time it wasn’t one of his down field plays, even though he had a couple of those this week as well. It was his block for Mixon on the Fourth-and-1 catch that got Mixon into the end zone. Even Mixon made sure to tip his cap to the rookie.

Chase also added another two deep receptions today.

Burrow finally gets the offense boiling

It is safe to say Bengals fans trust Burrow to get points on the board eventually in a game. This week, we saw Cincinnati set a new high for points in game for the 2021 season. Burrow’s three touchdowns were a huge reason for that as he got the offense to come alive in the second half.

Finally an easy win

Fans got to relax near the end of this one. It was also a chance for the Bengals to sit some key starters playing through injuries. It was fun to watch one of these games from the winning side for the first time since what feels like 2015.

Tweets of the game

It is always great to get a win like this where Cincinnati doesn’t stress out its fans till the very last play of the game. It all started with an unexpected touchdown to Evans that we covered in more detail earlier. However, this tweet deserves to be highlighted here as the best of the best.

There was a bit of a saga following C.J. Uzomah’s touchdown catch. He went and dapped up a fan in the stands, but he accidentally knocked the phone out of the fan’s hand. Luckily the phone was fine and was able to catch one of the best moments of the game and possibly the season.
