Bengals Twitter reactions to the playoff-eliminating loss to the Chiefs

This team gave its all. It just wasn’t enough.

For a quarter and a half, Jake Browning and the Cincinnati Bengals looked like they just might pull off a tough road win in Arrowhead against the Kansas City Chiefs.

That would’ve been huge. With the Baltimore Ravens winning over the Miami Dolphins, it became increasingly likely that the Cleveland Browns would rest their starters in Week 18, making a path to the playoffs very clear for Cincinnati.

However, the offense stalled after a 17-7 start, and an o-line that looked so good for most of the game allowed four sacks on the final drive, ending Cincinnati’s hopes in brutal fashion.

So how did Bengals Twitter react?

Let’s take a look.

There’s no denying that, after a terrible outing against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jake Browning came to play.

Appropriately, it was Cincinnati’s defense that received the most blame for the loss.

The obvious thought was, had Joe Burrow remained healthy, the Bengals could’ve very easily gotten a very more critical third and fourth down conversions to win the game.

But now fans are ready to move on.

There’s no denying that Zac Taylor and his staff proved they know how to keep their guys motivated even after huge injury blows.

Now fans just wait for Burrow to completely heal and Duke Tobin to find some help for the defensive line, pass rushers, and secondary.
