You might remember the game... and if not I'm revisiting it for you to suddenly recall the painful memory.
Cincinnati Bengals place kicker, Josh Brown crushed a 52-yard field goal to give Cincinnati a 19-10 lead with just more than six minutes remaining in the third quarter. It seemed like Cincinnati was cruising toward victory over the Dallas Cowboys, until Tony Romo engineered a 10-point fourth quarter to beat Cincinnati on a game-winning 40-yard field goal as time expired.
It was week 14, Dec. 9, 2012.
It was also the last time that the Cincinnati Bengals lost a regular season game at home. Since then, the Bengals have beaten the Baltimore Ravens in two regular season finales, and staged impressive wins against the Pittsburgh Steelers (on Monday Night Football), Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots and Indianapolis Colts at Paul Brown Stadium. For only the second time in franchise history, the Bengals went undefeated at home in '13, matching the team's '88 Super Bowl team.
And the streak continues today.
When the Cincinnati Bengals host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, they will attempt to win their 12th consecutive regular season game at home. If they do, it will set a franchise record. Despite the ticket issues (hey, click the link below if you're still looking), the team still holds an impressive home-field advantage. They're about to set a franchise record to prove it.
