Game Thread: Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) at Detroit Lions (0-5)
By - nfl_gamethread
Dan Campbell doesn’t deserve this, man.
That old timer yelling at them to call another timeout was incredible
Guarantee he’s bitching about that on the drive home
The Bengals have not been where we have been. Shut the hell up, announcers
Have you gone 0-16? Have you lost multiple first ballot Hall of Famers off your roster because they were sick of how dogshit your franchise is?
Have you had your owners twice in the last two decades fire a coaching staff because “9-7 isn’t good enough” to then follow that up with a shitty coaching and GM hire that screwed your team deep into the ground?
No, the teams that have any inkling of Detroit’s suffering right now are the Browns and the Jags
Dude we’re one of the least successful franchises in all of American sports history. We have a longer playoff win drought than you do. We know very well what it feels like to suck.
How do you think we got Burrow #1??
Brandon Allen is the MVP of the game.
Why are the Lions calling time outs
I get it, fuck it play to get points.
this team isnt bouncing back
its fucking shit, top down
Dan Campbell bitch made
Eat a dick, cheesehead. I can’t wait until Rodgers leaves your ass and Jordan Love just continually gets his dick knocked into his watch pocket
At least we can't be worse than the lions. Maybe Dan Campbell will unlock the power of the 23 point play in the future.
This is why no one likes packers fans. Y’all can’t just enjoy your own victory
Wait until next year when he's gone and NFC north becomes a cakewalk for anyone with competence, then Packers fans will be so salty.
"Oh noooo we didn't lose in the NFC championship game this year? I'm gonna be a X fan."
Can we still blame Quinn/Patricia for putting this team in this huge hole they're in?
Cause I will
God damn it. They are determined to make this day awful for me
Zac Taylor and unjustifiable decisions. Name a more iconic duo
Zac Taylor and being an awful coach
On the bright side Jared Goff could always be a stunt double for Ryan gosling
I feel your pain catbros, I only hope it gets better for youse guys. GG
Getting a little cringe now
as big as the hindenburg and as big of a disaster
We went from consistent 8-9 win seasons, to Patricia, to this
GG Cat Bros. Have a good one <3
Feels like this game ended already
Not a scorigami but if the bengals kick a field goal it would be
You've been to a Superbowl though
Walk the Moon
The National are originally from Cincy as well.
I know they really want to shit on Sewell, but this wasn't Chase's best game, statistically.
That block was incredible tho
Did you see what Trey was doin to Sewell?
A friend hooked me up with Red Zone. I really wanted Chase to get another TD, but I'll settle for what we saw
Gg cat bros. Hope the rebuild gets better for you soon.
We need a FG from Cincy. 37-11.
At least give me a fucking scorigami. I don’t have anything else in my football life this weekend
Score that has never happened
This is what happens when you take a historically bad defense, don't really improve on it talent-wise, and then lose several key offensive weapons and tools to free agency and injury.
I just want this team so scrape together one win this year. We've gotten so close twice already
Falcons have to be the best chance at this point right?
Maybe the seahawks if Russ is still out?
Eagles or maybe the Steelers also. We have a brutal schedule this year.
Eagles I think are the best chance.
Falcons second best.
Seahawks if Russ is out third chance.
Bears as a possible dark horse
I don't think the Bears can ever do anything right.
Nobody, and I mean nobody, only holds the Lions to ten points in a game.
Stop. Stop trying. Stop doing this to us.
I like that guys like Swift are still grinding hard.
It hurts my heart for them. They could have gone to a good team not coached by a worthless sack far of shit for four years who set the roster on fire and put it out by pissing on it
Is 34-11 a scorigami?
No, 37-11 is though.
Giants-Rams game is like watching a carbon copy of this one. Giants also just scored a garbage time TD and 2pt conv to get 11 points on the board.
saving my fantasy week over there hahaha
the only scorigamis left with 34 for the winning team are 34-4 and 34-1.
Feels like it has to be
No I just checked the chart
That crowd shot was awesome. Fuck yeah Lion's fans. I love the late game energy, ironic or not, because I've been that guy a whole bunch of times
Bengals fans will definitely sympathize. Same with the Browns when we play them later this year.
I really like Campbell, and I like Williams and Okudah.
I've decided to make y'all my new #2 instead of the Washington Buckeyes
At least we got some onside kick practice
The Lions should hold open try outs.
Woo garbage time!!!
34-11 is a weird one
LEAVE ZAC TAYLOR IN DETROIT!!!1!!1,1
Our RBs and Fox are the only decent parts of this team
Did anyone see how big that woman's thighs were in the upper-area of the screen in the stands?
Fuck I must've missed it someone please show a screenshot or something I'm desperate
To everyone who thought the lions wouldn't get another 4th quarter 2pt conversation, take that. /S
Sewell got worked today
It honestly seems like those first row seats behind the end zone would suck. How do you even see anything?
I had AA seats in college and they sucked. Bleachers on the ground row 4. The cheerleaders blocked stuff
and they have to be expensive, right?
Student tickets, so same price as others. But typically yes
Did y'all see how the ref moved the ball back there prior to the Swift tuddy
moral victory TDs
way to go you fucking bums
That was a TD. Swift earned that
Lol now they’re agreeing with our decision to draft Chase over Sewell
Jared Statpadder driving down the field again smh /s
Kid is a 20 year old rookie, chill
Who didn't play at all last year.
And Trey Hendrickson is pretty damn good.
He's really struggled today
Yeah cause he’s a 20 year old rookie lol
Who did not play at all last season. Heck this guy
And who didn't play college ball last year, that's fair
At it was to the right jersey color
id throw that shit ball back
Not shitting on the Bengals but these announcers need to remember we have like 14 people on IR and we were one of the worst defenses in the history of the NFL last season.
You don't flip that shit around in one offseason.
Plus we got rid of our offensive weapons and have OLine issues. Just no talent anywhere right now.
I have no idea what they expect until people come back. I hate when they just try to fill space by saying nonsense
Can you blame them, though? What else is there to talk about in a blowout?
It's just super fucking agitating as well when they talk shit because they never give context to things, so it just spreads ignorance in fanbases.
May as well go get medical advice from facebook as well.
"Why don't the Lions simply score more points while preventing the Bengals from scoring?"
"You, Strawberry, hit a home run!"
Good guy Goff, giving back to the community
That was eh...I'm sorry.
This but he unironically does do a good job giving back to the community
At the very least our college teams are balling out right now.
But oh wait they hate each other.
I'm a UK fan, but I'm married to an OSU alumnae, so I root for them too. I'm pretty happy about college football this year
Our college team is lookin pretty good too 🤩
Go Bearcats, mess up that playoff committee
The Bengals coaching staff is trying to pad their resume with this game.
God I'm so sick of the Packers
Best part of Sunday is when the lions game is over and they can’t hurt me for another week.
Fucking Packers win too.
Seriously, what did our team do to some Brady Bunch tiki god for all this. There is rebuilding and then there is fucking this. I think we are now favored to go winless on the year.
Yeah, who needs to check down to Swift when you can throw into triple coverage?
Jesus their back-ups are making our offense look bad.
This Bachie guy looks pretty good
This is fucking sad. Goof can't even hit a 10yd pass vs prevent.
I know we don't like him, but that Rodgers pump fake was gross
Yeah I agree. It upset me at how good that was
How many offensive yards did lions have before bengals relaxed their D
I had no idea Aaron Rodgers could run like that lmfao.
I doubt anyone will have a better shot at 0-17 than we do this season. Not saying 0-17 will happen, but if it does then it'll probably be us first
I’m saying that it will happen. I’ve thought this ever since Tucker’s 66 yard kick. It is fate. We just need Amon-Ra to find the millennium puzzle and unlock its power. Bring back the shadow games
I know that the backups need reps, but I don't like that they didn't just hand it off to kill some clock
This has nothing to do with having McPherson in FF
Defense was and is gassed. Can’t blame them for second half collapse. Offense takes the blame this game. Couldn’t run or pass the ball.
A couple sustained drives and this looks a lot different. Defense looked solid until they were exhausted
Can they just switch this to the Packers/Bears game?
Anybody else just feel bad at this point
I’ve never felt anything but bad
Lions fans, you’ve been great today and I hope things turn around for you soon. Really like Dan Campbell
Feel bad for Goff tbh
If we had a QB that could hit the broadside of a fucking barn and didn’t eyefuck his receivers before throwing it to them, we would be in this game.
How on Earth did Jared Goff get picked #1OA?
Why? He’s part of the problem.
Well he did go the SB. How many Lions great QBs can say that?
You do have a QB who took them to the SB. I understand Goff isn't good but you have to feel bad for him.
Same with Scam Newton
All you have to do is watch him and realize he is 100% part of the problem. Idc that he went to the super bowl with a completely different franchise. He just isn’t helping us win games.
True and I've said he's no good but the playcalling is eyebrow raising at times, the players keep putting low efforts and overall while the Lions have heart and sporadically play well, you guys end up losing
Several games were close losses.
Personally I think you'll get a great win against Packers this year and spoil their party. Mark my words
Cletus Blokeman even called a penalty on the lions and he isnt even here
I was hoping they would slap that dude’s phone again. I think he’s livestreaming without the express written consent of the NFL.
This team should be *embarrassed*.
It’s legit been like 10 years since a good Madden came out. Madden 15 was ok tho
They’re giving it away if you have game pass on Xbox
I have a PS🤷♂️
That 2015 Bengals Steelers wild card game still haunts me
That was the first sporting event my then girlfriend and I watched together. I broke the remote!
this team doesnt play like a 0-5 team
sure as shit played like it today
Jesus I feel bad for Lions fans. This roster is barely pro level. I don't even know what the top pick in the draft will do.
Thibideaux will help the DLine but still.
I think they've had enough
"ZAC TAYLORS OFFENSE CLICKING NO MATTER WHOS IN THERE AGAINST THIS LIONS TEAM. "
Imagine saying that with a few thousand people watching and being serious in saying that.
What could possibly be the common denominator?
As usual, there is a good 2nd game, and I'm stuck with fucking Dallas again. That never helps the post lions depression. Southern Michigan ain't that far from Cleveland.
No shit, same with the Cincy market.
I just realized it's because CBS has the double header this week, and the Cleveland game is on fox.
Triple header, they had the JAX/MIA game this morning.
At least we fucking led once in the Packers game
The ref didn't realize that you don't have to throw a flag just because the receiver points at you
This is beyond pathetic
WHO DEY!!! TATE!!!
...and there's five minutes left.
Jesus, refs need to just let them go find a quiet spot in the woods already
Why are the refs kicking the lions corpse?
Has to be the lowest yards our defense has held anyone since Zimmer coached, right?
Probably longer than that. Not very often a team holds another team to roughly 150 yards. I doubt Zimmer ever did that
I think we have held some to QBs to around 100 yards with him iirc
This a murder now.. like come on..
Can you just quit throwing flags and let the game end
WOOOOOOOOOH DPI AGAIN
Allen nailed that pylon
The lions kicked the refs dog
Another DPI LoLions
Williams looks about 4 feet tall
This might be the worst team, respective to their time, ever.
I stand by the fact that, if the Lions had better offensive play calling, they'd have 2 or 3 wins right now
We're two record breaking, to their respective kickers, kicks away from 2-3
I think the Bengals set records for points and yards against in 2017
I'd like to introduce you to the 2017 Browns
2017 browns were a standard bad team whose only notable downfall was their turnover differential.
2017 Browns were better than this
Lions only lost twice thanks to last second, record-breaking field goals. This game is rough, but they aren't so deep in the basement that they're not competitive.
Can I offer you a Joe Flacco brand "Elite Pass" thrown by Brandon Allen in these trying times?
Ugh. Very bad bet
Burrow over 285 yards and Goff over 1.5 TDs.
Burrow gets lifted in a 27-3 game at 271 yards lol
Over/under on wins in their next 20 games for Detroit. Set at 1.5.
That’s kinda weak lmao
Just run the ball and end the game.
Refs just twisting that knife at this point
Ref fell down
Sounds like a penalty for the Lions!
Dylan Larkin has been suspended one additional game.
Really? Just get this shit over with.
YEH WOOOOOOOH DPI
