Today was a very good day for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Entering the day, Cincinnati sat in third place in the AFC North.
By day’s end, Cincinnati would be in a tie for first place in the division.
Not one, not two, but all three other division teams lost in spectacular fashion.
Next up, the Baltimore Ravens lost a 23-20 decision at the gun to the Buffalo Bills after leading 20-3 late in the first half. The Bills rally was aided by Lamar Jackson throwing a horrific red-zone interception after Baltimore was down to the Buffalo 2-yard line with 4:15 left in regulation.
Finally, the Pittsburgh Steelers blew a 10-point fourth-quarter lead to the New York Jets before falling 24-20. The Jets rally was made possible thanks to Kenny Pickett throwing a brutal interception with 3:34 left before the Jets marched down the field for the game-winning score.
Right after the early slate of games concluded, the Bengals’ official Twitter account sent out this picture, likely to troll the rest of the division being hot garbage today.
