Dan Campbell doesn’t deserve this, man.


cokeface

RIP scorigami


obsterwankenobster

That old timer yelling at them to call another timeout was incredible


wsmfp_420

Guarantee he’s bitching about that on the drive home


tsweeney12584

The Bengals have not been where we have been. Shut the hell up, announcers


calls_link_zelda

Uh, what?


tsweeney12584

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


calls_link_zelda

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.


Faroundtripledouble

How do you think we got Burrow #1??


MTVChallengeFan

Brandon Allen is the MVP of the game.


AtiumDependent

Why are the Lions calling time outs


benthebearded

I get it, fuck it play to get points.


Drewitallanon_x_

this team isnt bouncing back its fucking shit, top down


chuckthetruck64

Dan Campbell bitch made


tsweeney12584

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


chuckthetruck64

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.


wsmfp_420

This is why no one likes packers fans. Y’all can’t just enjoy your own victory


nbh2992

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."


byniri_returns

Can we still blame Quinn/Patricia for putting this team in this huge hole they're in? Cause I will


tsweeney12584

God damn it. They are determined to make this day awful for me


obsterwankenobster

Zac Taylor and unjustifiable decisions. Name a more iconic duo


plzmakemeMD

Zac Taylor and being an awful coach


plzmakemeMD

On the bright side Jared Goff could always be a stunt double for Ryan gosling


Ralph-Hinkley

I feel your pain catbros, I only hope it gets better for youse guys. GG


Xannydevito88

Getting a little cringe now


Drewitallanon_x_

Patricia as big as the hindenburg and as big of a disaster


byniri_returns

We went from consistent 8-9 win seasons, to Patricia, to this


Mavori

GG Cat Bros. Have a good one <3


Severe_Seesaw

Feels like this game ended already


Cincinnatian

https://nflscorigami.com Not a scorigami but if the bengals kick a field goal it would be

SonicEuthanasia

You've been to a Superbowl though


SupercriticalRx

Walk the Moon


OnTheProwl-

The National are originally from Cincy as well.


obsterwankenobster

I know they really want to shit on Sewell, but this wasn't Chase's best game, statistically. That block was incredible tho


22Zay

Did you see what Trey was doin to Sewell?


obsterwankenobster

A friend hooked me up with Red Zone. I really wanted Chase to get another TD, but I'll settle for what we saw


Kent767

Gg cat bros. Hope the rebuild gets better for you soon.


tsweeney12584

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


-Pockets-

Scorigami?


tsweeney12584

Score that has never happened


byniri_returns

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


benthebearded

Falcons have to be the best chance at this point right? Maybe the seahawks if Russ is still out?


beernuts86

Eagles or maybe the Steelers also. We have a brutal schedule this year.


byniri_returns

Eagles I think are the best chance. Falcons second best. Seahawks if Russ is out third chance. Bears as a possible dark horse


benthebearded

I don't think the Bears can ever do anything right.


MTVChallengeFan

Nobody, and I mean nobody, only holds the Lions to ten points in a game.


lronicGasping

Stop. Stop trying. Stop doing this to us.


tsweeney12584

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


tsweeney12584

Is 34-11 a scorigami?


OnTheProwl-

No, 37-11 is though.


_vogonpoetry_

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.


pegcity

saving my fantasy week over there hahaha


thewill450

Is 34-11 a scorigami?


Garn91575

the only scorigamis left with 34 for the winning team are 34-4 and 34-1.


obsterwankenobster

Feels like it has to be


Cincinnatian

No I just checked the chart


obsterwankenobster

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


byniri_returns

Bengals fans will definitely sympathize. Same with the Browns when we play them later this year.


obsterwankenobster

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


TaliZorah14

At least we got some onside kick practice


bob-ak-hsihs

The Lions should hold open try outs.


godsmith2

Woo garbage time!!!


NannerRepublican

34-11 is a weird one


KaJuNator

LEAVE ZAC TAYLOR IN DETROIT!!!1!!1,1


lronicGasping

Our RBs and Fox are the only decent parts of this team


MTVChallengeFan

Did anyone see how big that woman's thighs were in the upper-area of the screen in the stands?


CrispMustard

Fuck I must've missed it someone please show a screenshot or something I'm desperate


meetthedecline4150

THUNDER THIGHSSSS


Lions313

To everyone who thought the lions wouldn't get another 4th quarter 2pt conversation, take that. /S


thewill450

Sewell got worked today


obsterwankenobster

It honestly seems like those first row seats behind the end zone would suck. How do you even see anything?


54stickers

I had AA seats in college and they sucked. Bleachers on the ground row 4. The cheerleaders blocked stuff


obsterwankenobster

and they have to be expensive, right?


54stickers

Student tickets, so same price as others. But typically yes


Mavori

Did y'all see how the ref moved the ball back there prior to the Swift tuddy


Drewitallanon_x_

moral victory TDs way to go you fucking bums


Cincinnatian

That was a TD. Swift earned that


plzmakemeMD

Lol now they’re agreeing with our decision to draft Chase over Sewell


_vogonpoetry_

Jared Statpadder driving down the field again smh /s

SolidHayterForever

Kid is a 20 year old rookie, chill


byniri_returns

Who didn't play at all last year.


calls_link_zelda

And Trey Hendrickson is pretty damn good.


byniri_returns

He's really struggled today


elcham0

Yeah cause he’s a 20 year old rookie lol


IHavetwoNipples

Who did not play at all last season. Heck this guy


byniri_returns

And who didn't play college ball last year, that's fair


Ifriendzonecats

At it was to the right jersey color


Drewitallanon_x_

id throw that shit ball back


Mavori

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.


byniri_returns

Plus we got rid of our offensive weapons and have OLine issues. Just no talent anywhere right now.


obsterwankenobster

I have no idea what they expect until people come back. I hate when they just try to fill space by saying nonsense


worldstoughestvegan

Can you blame them, though? What else is there to talk about in a blowout?


Mavori

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.


obsterwankenobster

"Why don't the Lions simply score more points while preventing the Bengals from scoring?"


RadicalDreamer89

"You, Strawberry, hit a home run!"


TaliZorah14

Good guy Goff, giving back to the community


lpisme

That was eh...I'm sorry.


byniri_returns

This but he unironically does do a good job giving back to the community


byniri_returns

At the very least our college teams are balling out right now. But oh wait they hate each other.


SupercriticalRx

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


MidsizeGorilla

Our college team is lookin pretty good too 🤩


byniri_returns

Go Bearcats, mess up that playoff committee


TheWorstYear

The Bengals coaching staff is trying to pad their resume with this game.


byniri_returns

God I'm so sick of the Packers


TopHatTony11

Best part of Sunday is when the lions game is over and they can’t hurt me for another week.


tsweeney12584

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.


LimitlessTheTVShow

Yeah, who needs to check down to Swift when you can throw into triple coverage?


bob-ak-hsihs

Jesus their back-ups are making our offense look bad.


SupercriticalRx

This Bachie guy looks pretty good


SolidHayterForever

This is fucking sad. Goof can't even hit a 10yd pass vs prevent.


obsterwankenobster

I know we don't like him, but that Rodgers pump fake was gross


TaliZorah14

Yeah I agree. It upset me at how good that was


Lions313

How many offensive yards did lions have before bengals relaxed their D


MTVChallengeFan

I had no idea Aaron Rodgers could run like that lmfao.


Mudcrabs_Beware

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


tsweeney12584

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


obsterwankenobster

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


elcham0

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.


obsterwankenobster

A couple sustained drives and this looks a lot different. Defense looked solid until they were exhausted


bob-ak-hsihs

Can they just switch this to the Packers/Bears game?


MrSnazzyGoose

Anybody else just feel bad at this point


tsweeney12584

I’ve never felt anything but bad


MidsizeGorilla

Lions fans, you’ve been great today and I hope things turn around for you soon. Really like Dan Campbell


ironmanmk42

Feel bad for Goff tbh


tsweeney12584

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?


bob-ak-hsihs

Why? He’s part of the problem.


ironmanmk42

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


bob-ak-hsihs

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.


ironmanmk42

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


Lions313

Cletus Blokeman even called a penalty on the lions and he isnt even here


KaJuNator

I was hoping they would slap that dude’s phone again. I think he’s livestreaming without the express written consent of the NFL.


bob-ak-hsihs

This team should be *embarrassed*.

Cincinnatian

It’s legit been like 10 years since a good Madden came out. Madden 15 was ok tho


SupercriticalRx

And over-priced


Cincinnatian

They’re giving it away if you have game pass on Xbox


SupercriticalRx

I have a PS🤷‍♂️


Cincinnatian

That 2015 Bengals Steelers wild card game still haunts me


obsterwankenobster

That was the first sporting event my then girlfriend and I watched together. I broke the remote!


Drewitallanon_x_

this team doesnt play like a 0-5 team LMAO


byniri_returns

sure as shit played like it today


Dinos67

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.


byniri_returns

Thibideaux will help the DLine but still.


thewill450

I think they've had enough


Mavori

"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.


benthebearded

What could possibly be the common denominator?


meetthedecline4150

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.


Ralph-Hinkley

No shit, same with the Cincy market.


meetthedecline4150

I just realized it's because CBS has the double header this week, and the Cleveland game is on fox.


Ralph-Hinkley

Triple header, they had the JAX/MIA game this morning.


lronicGasping

At least we fucking led once in the Packers game


tedpundy

The ref didn't realize that you don't have to throw a flag just because the receiver points at you


byniri_returns

This is beyond pathetic


Ralph-Hinkley

WHO DEY!!! TATE!!! ...and there's five minutes left.


-Pockets-

Jesus, refs need to just let them go find a quiet spot in the woods already


Drewitallanon_x_

MORE GOOOOOOOF LOL


benthebearded

Why are the refs kicking the lions corpse?


Striped-Out

Has to be the lowest yards our defense has held anyone since Zimmer coached, right?


BurritoBurrow

Probably longer than that. Not very often a team holds another team to roughly 150 yards. I doubt Zimmer ever did that


Striped-Out

I think we have held some to QBs to around 100 yards with him iirc


TheGhost118

This a murder now.. like come on..


lronicGasping

Can you just quit throwing flags and let the game end


Drewitallanon_x_

WOOOOOOOOOH DPI AGAIN GET SOOOOOOOME


TaliZorah14

Allen nailed that pylon


TheWorstYear

The lions kicked the refs dog


Tlomz27

Another DPI LoLions


MidsizeGorilla

Williams looks about 4 feet tall


byniri_returns

This might be the worst team, respective to their time, ever.


LimitlessTheTVShow

I stand by the fact that, if the Lions had better offensive play calling, they'd have 2 or 3 wins right now


byniri_returns

We're two record breaking, to their respective kickers, kicks away from 2-3


pegcity

I think the Bengals set records for points and yards against in 2017


NannerRepublican

I'd like to introduce you to the 2017 Browns


Jonny_Qball

2017 browns were a standard bad team whose only notable downfall was their turnover differential.


byniri_returns

2017 Browns were better than this


NannerRepublican

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.


benthebearded

Can I offer you a Joe Flacco brand "Elite Pass" thrown by Brandon Allen in these trying times?


tsweeney12584

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


jgjot-singh

Unlucky


tsweeney12584

Over/under on wins in their next 20 games for Detroit. Set at 1.5.


jgjot-singh

Easy money


bob-ak-hsihs

That’s kinda weak lmao


bob-ak-hsihs

Just run the ball and end the game.


NannerRepublican

Refs just twisting that knife at this point


obsterwankenobster

Ref fell down


paulwhite959

Sounds like a penalty for the Lions!


Mavori

Dylan Larkin has been suspended one additional game.


Ralph-Hinkley

Really? Just get this shit over with.


Drewitallanon_x_

YEH WOOOOOOOH DPI
