Hello darkness my old friend. The bengals bungled agains

France2Germany0

Time for some Burrow magic?


Image
goofy_traveler

First game burrow lost with a 50-50 PI call then botched FG.


Image
Token_Panda

At this rate, I think Burrow finishing a game Uninjured and without massive TBI is an achievement.


Image
Canner2477

Joe burrow is gonna die behind the bengals o-line smh


Image
elfmachine100

Burrow looks great, it's a shame he is stuck on the Bengals.


Image
IAmTheNightSoil

I had money on the Bengals to lose by less than 6. I thought I was cooked until Burrow led his non-comeback comeback at the end and the Bengals lost by only 5 points! Burrow won me $4.63! A legend is born today. The legend of Big Money Burrow.


Image
SlayerXZero

They need a better O line. I can see them being better next year.


Image
jmr212

This game shouldn’t have been this close. I know a lot of the Browns defense is injured but cmon, if I was watching the game without being able to see the score I’d have thought the Browns won 40-17. We’re doing all the little things wrong on defense.


Image
sloanworldwidextc

Definitely room for improvement. I’m beyond happy to see the offense coming together though, and the D will improve as they get some of their guys back.


Image
YEET9011

Yeah another year of not winning a fucking game😡


Image
Beantown_Beatdown_

I know that feeling


Image
JTIZZLE_28

The fact that they struggled that much against the bengals says I would bet money the browns dont even sniff the playoffs


Image
pj7140

Hardly a struggle. Bengals were the ones struggling...what game were you watching?


Image
admiralkit

Define "sniff the playoffs," I'm curious what your standard is there. I'm not going to say we're playoff bound, but we had a weird/short offseason where we hired a new head coach who has installed our young QB's 4th offensive system in three years. If we'd looked like we did last Sunday I'd be tempted to agree with you that we were done when we usually are, but there's a lot of improvement in terms of development by the coach and much of the team that can still be accomplished against a schedule that isn't easy but isn't insanely tough either. I don't think it's unreasonable to think we could still be in the hunt in weeks 14/15, even if we're on the outside looking in.


Image

Gentlemen's bet?

Just imagine if Burrow went to the Saints as the heir apparent to Brees. Cincy better protect him.

Go on...

Is that a bad bandwagon to be on?

Good game I want to see the Browns have a winning season


Image
IAmTheNightSoil

Same. Those fucking fans deserve it so bad.


Image
AoE2manatarms

Same man. I feel for this team and when they're on they're a fun team to watch.


Image
makankosacanon

Burrow looked good for someone who has to play behind a line that can't protect him. If his line was even has good as the eagles line (/s), he might not have to throw 61 times a game. Burrow could have a solid career. But not if the Bengals can't protect him. He'll end up with a busted knee like RG3.

NoviDon07

Burrow is a warrior with ice water in his veins! Sacked 9 times and still setting up clutch drives at the end of his first two games. Didn't get the W but he is already changing the culture of the team. Just need to focus on protecting the guy first and foremost.


Image
[deleted]

Thanks for this realistic, not “bitter cause your team didn’t get burrow” comment. Very fair assessment.


Image
ugafan86

If these teams had switched QBs the Browns would have won like 45-10. Burrow is already better than Baker, he's just stuck on a much shittier team.


Image

OBJ loves shit tho

Is Irvin drunk?


Image
jeff2595

Steve smith’s eyes were low as hell


Image
M4SixString

I really think so. Drunk and tired. He sounds like he had too much and some has worn off


Image
Flululu

That was a fun game to watch. Seems like a lot more horrible calls than usual. I guess that's expected. I feel for Burrow because he did pretty much everything he could. But he's also rich as fuck no so idk. I'm going to go eat a Publix sub now


Image
O_____ov

I heard Bengals were down 2 DTs for the game. And that clearly showed during the game when the Browns rushed for 217 and 3 TDs. No way in hell you lose that game if all you have to do is snap the ball and hand it off lol if Browns had Orlovsky as their QB they’d still win


Image
murrayfromtheblock

Joey covering for the boys is the story of the game.


Image
HotFlamingo7676

Id rather have joe than trevor. Fight me.


Image
IAmTheNightSoil

Who is going to fight you over that? That take isn't particularly bold or controversial I don't think.


Image
ZachPlaysDrums

I mean Joe just had the best college season ever and is proving himself the nfl right now. Is this take even warm?


Image
Worley12393

I fucking love you man


Image
VisualAsparagus

The NFL really is looking a lot more like the college game in every way now.

I actually kind of like it.

Image
CJNunes426

I thought this was a reference to how awesome burrow was despite getting destroyed all game because his offensive line is terrible


Image
M4SixString

Irvin sounds drunk


Image
benjamichel

Has anyone seen Joe Burrow flash beyond an Alex Smith? Arm talent just doesn’t jump off the tape for me. High iq guy, mobile in the pocket but he’s missed so many “pro-level” throws. I think he’ll hover in that Jared Goff/Carson Wentz tier for his career. Maybe compete for a title once on the back of a solid roster/scheme but I don’t think he’ll live up to the first overall hype. *edit for spelling.


Image
paperbackgarbage

I've watched Goff play every single one of his games in college, and a good number of his games as a pro.


Image
TheRealMrJoshua56

I think he'll be above average. Especially if he can get some protection. Of course he's going to miss some throws. Its his 2nd game and messed up off-season/training camps. Bottom line its WAY too early to tell.


Image
Getfuckedbitchbaby

It’s his second game. Of course he is going to miss pro level throws.


Image
zirtbow

You guys ever see someone write a bunch of stuff to sound smart but instead show how dumb they are?


Image
RedandHalfBlack

He just threw for 300 yards and 3 TDs behind the worst offensive line ever assembled in his second game.


Image
n33d3dn3w1

Lol no


Image
TheDJC

Still have no idea how I feel about the Browns but the Bengals are going to get Burrow killed

I just hope to god Joe Burrow doesn't end up like Andrew Luck.

Andrew Luck won a playoff game. Thats prolly all they want tbh

Good game

gg


Image
espressojunkie

That was way better than a Browns v Bengals game has any right to be. Burrow is the truth, with a better OL he could win the super bowl. Baker w Stefanski looks miles better already. Chubb and Hunt are the second most potent run threat in football other than the Ravens.


Image
Belee_Dat_69

“Burrow is the truth” lmao 🧢🧢🧢


Image
DoltDoltDolt

Onside kicks are fucked now. If you have 2 TOs or less after the two minute warning then you basically lost.


Image
buckeyefan349

Lmao the irony


Image
Getfuckedbitchbaby

Honestly I like that idea that they threw around of one play 4th and 15 or whatever. It would still have problems, but the onside kicks now are just pointless. They basically never work


Image
TheSmilingDentist

Burrow already better than baker lol. Browns lucky to be playing the worst run defense in the league.


Image
RandomBrownsFan

Baker can play a fantastic game after getting shit on for a year and still people will find a way to shit on him.


Image
jmr212

80% of the Browns defense is injured right now.


Image
MattScoot

Browns defense is 4 starters and some sacks of potato’s rn


Image
Clemeder

As a Bengals fan I expected to lose. It’s so great to see a quarterback who wants to win like Burrow. Optimism isn’t one of our strong suits watching this team but this guy just feels so much different. Win or lose I’m excited to see how he develops.


Image
ImpossibleParfait

Burrow played a great game. Its something to build upon.


Image
AdamIsACylon

As a Bengals fan, I am worried with what I just saw. I mean, he’s crazy impressive but that’s wayyy too many throws to be asking of him.


Image
TGCampbell8

What more can Burrow do?


Image
ofayokay

Make 5 Anthony Munoz clones like it’s Jurassic Park


Image
Fools_Requiem

Request a trade to a team with an O-Line that will help keep him alive. That man is going to be dead before this season ends.


Image
zirtbow

Throw 70 passes?


Image
blackjesus75

Burrow still licking his fingers.


Image
Erniecrack

I hear he reads the dictionary for fun.


Image
gswar33

Just a brutal no cover by the browns there


Image

I considered putting a bill on that -6.


Image
ChumboverKrabbyPatty

Bengals vs Browns defense


Image
TheRealMrJoshua56

The Bengals didn't have one QB hit? Not including the post INT block


Image
CampbellTheFake

Do you think Joe wouldn't want the ball?


Image
BenoBoyz

LET ME SEE BURROW DAB UP OBJ AND LANDRY U WORTHLESS ESPN


Image
EndSlidingArea

Cleveland offense looking pretty good! The Bengals showed some life! Definitely a fun game overall, I'm happy for both franchises.


Image
EchoRespite

Who the fuck let Chris Weinke throw 63 times?!


Image
UnjuggedRabbitFish

Just looked it up.


Image
paperbackgarbage

I mean, at that point? I'm pretty sure that Weinke was older than John Fox, so he could just do whatever he wanted.


Image

joe burrow looks decent tbh

One guy was touched when his knee was down outside the goal line, one guy Wasn’t


Image
KeeperDan

Burrow is a gamer man. 61 attempts, scrambling and getting rocked all game but still puts up 30 points. Props for that


Image
HotFlamingo7676

Lets be honest the browns are way more talented than the bengals and the fact they kept it to 5 and joe looked awesome should make you guys feel good.


Image
MattScoot

Normally I’d agree but honestly there’s not a huge difference between our defense and their offense rn


Image
CJNunes426

Courageous onside kick attempt by bullock. Imagine if his his knee cap was still attached


Image
onliwenimtrunk

Wait that’s it? We all just gotta go to bed knowing joe buck is fine getting corona from Troy Aikman... we already knew that.


Image
xlxxlv

AJ Green might be on the waiver wire honestly. 13 targets, 3 receptions. dropped some easy balls


Image
bnbtwjdfootsyk

I started him expecting him to get plenty of targets. I was so upset when he dropped that late touchdown catch.


Image
h3n7a1l0v3

Browns are now 1-1

.500 baby


Image

Curious why Baker is holding onto that ball


Image
Arrakis91

Maybe keeping it for the coach


Image
adolph_ziggler

Joe Burrow is really impressive. It's too bad his o-line is made of punters.


Image
RadicalDreamer89

Punters is too much credit. His O-line is made up of 5 of me, at a robust 5'7" 125lb.


Image
Bareknucklepugilist

Well Pats will end up with Burrow somehow.


Image
ThadCastle00

Wow. I was thinking this exact thing just now too.

This was a good TNF game. Kinda rare tbh

He has to be, like, 85 by now.

Burrow should demand a trade. That shit org should be relegated to XFL

Burrow might be one of the few QB to get a Tommy John at this rate.


Image
Septembers

Lol Bengals covered the spread on that


Image
IAmTheNightSoil

Big Money Burrow!


Image
whatsforsupa

61 throws, no real mistakes. Future is bright for Cincy.


Image
MerryGambit

Unless he keeps getting hit like this


Image
PoliticsRealityTV

Koo is why they'll never fix onside kicks.


Image
[deleted]

Un-fucking-believable. Half a yard. Lost a bet by a half a yard on a kneel.


Image
MostMorbidOne

Pretty straight forward game.


Image
[deleted]

Bengals giving Mixon a big new contract. Run him 16 times and barely have him in the game in the fourth quarter. Smort.


Image
RedandHalfBlack

Yeah, agreed that we should lose the game in order to get a higher ROI out of our running back. Since that’s the goal: high ROI on salaries, not wins.


Image
Logoluso

I'll never understand why teams give running backs huge contracts. Spend that money on your offense line. How many teams this year have good running backs on their roster still on a rookie contract? Bills, Rams, Packers, ect. Unless he's once in a generation, like Zeke or maybe even Cook, I just don't see running backs being worth a big hit of cap space.


Image

Baker with the expert timing, to make that the last play lol


Image
MattScoot

The ref had a quick whistle before his knee was down too


Image
huzzah1

Unpopular opinion: AJ Green needs to be traded. He doesn't want to play here and he hasn't made a big catch in two years.


Image
DeepTrackOfficeQuote

Why would we trade him when his value is at the lowest its ever been


Image
Whopper_Jr_71

Just pull a texans and get rid of your young quarterbacks best target.


Image
PropaneAddict

he's played 2 games in the past 2 years lmao


Image
AchtungCloud

He looks washed, and it’s sad.


Image
SFW_HARD_AT_WORK

we gotta protect burrow. next draft, we need some starting caliber Olineman as 1st priority and dline as 2nd priority


Image

Bro Joey gonna be dead by then


Image
HeavyCoreTD

I don’t think he’ll last till the draft man


Image
TakenakaHanbei

There is no reason your QB should throw 60+ passes in a single game.


Image
zirtbow

Yeah but what if the Bengals HC is facing a fantasy football opponent that's starting Joe Mixon tho?


Image
_Doctor_Teeth_

that is some college air raid shit


Image
avidblinker

kinda expected Bryant to give Janovich a lil kiss there


Image

If the bengals don’t have the fumble they may win this

Bengals +6.5. Oh yeah.

Who is Joe Mixon?

Why is Baker keeping the ball?

Stefanskis first win maybe

Did you see those handoffs! Carried them to victory!


Image
Volitiv

I'm sure he will have his growing pains as a rookie, but Joe Burrow is going to be a stud. Happy for the Bengals fans.


Image
RadicalDreamer89

If he survives. That O-line is going to get him killed this year.


Image
Fnkt_io

If he doesn’t die

Feel like we played better than the score. Maybe not.


Image
Ickyhouse

Punted once, only one turnover, yet Cinci had a chance to get the onside kick for a win.


Image
erichie

You guys absolutely did. It's just the shitty "prevent" defense at the end of games that made the game close. It's like the coaches decide to play D as safe as possible because if they gave up a long TD pass because they brought the safety down would reflect worse on them then giving up a TD in prevent.


Image
SilenceWillFallAK

I think your offense looked good. Also playing against the bengals, but yknow.
