The Bengals Have Complete Meltdown, Commit Two Dumb Penalties To Lose Game Vs Steelers

The Bengals-Steelers AFC wildcard game is going to go down as one of the wildest playoff games in recent memory which ended with a complete meltdown by the Cincinnati Bengals.

With the Steelers on the 47 yard line with 22 seconds to go, Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict hit Antonio Brown with a dirty shoulder hit to the head which resulted in a 15-yard penalty.

During the timeout before the next play, Pacman Jones tried to shove Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter and which resulted in another 15 yard penalty which gave the Steelers a chip shot field goald to win the game.

Gotta feel bad for Bengals fans because the game was pretty much in the bag considering the Steelers were out of timeouts and Ben Roethlisberger didn’t look like he could throw an accurate pass down the field with his injured shoulder. Another season but still the same old Bengals.
