Joe Burrow and the offense finally started to get going, and things felt right in Cincinnati. Burrow, at least in the second half, started to look like himself, and Chase had a career night as well.
There were some worries in the first half, but Monday night was full of emotion for Bengals fans, thankfully having it end in their first win of the season. Let’s dive into some of the best tweets of the night.
These have an honorable mention for Best of the Night and are absolutely unrelated to the actual game.

It wasn’t quite the night for star receiver Tee Higgins.

It certainly wasn’t all bad though as the team bounced back in a big way. Let’s talk about some positive, fun tweets from Monday night’s win now.
Here’s the dancing, which is impressive to say the least, after Wilson’s second interception.

It was a good night for Bengals fans, thankfully.
With a far less than 100% Joe Burrow, the #Bengals pulled out a gutty, tough win tonight. It had to be a total team win, and it was all of that. Impressive even for Burrow to be out there.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 26, 2023
