The Cincinnati Bengals. Not only did they fail to win their first playoff victory in the Marvin Lewis era, they completely embarrassed themselves in the effort. That embarrassment continued into the night, as Pacman Jones posted this expletive filled rant against the referees for flagging him.
Jones was flagged 15 yards, bringing the Steelers into comfortable field goal range for the victory. This infraction was on top of a 15 yard penalty against none other than Vontaze Burfict, building up his case as the league’s dirtiest player.
The Bengals should have won last night. But thanks to their cockiest players in Jeremy Hill, Vontaze Burfict and Pacman Jones, the Bengals were the Bengals, and embarrassed their fans once again.
Pittsburgh wins in a crazy one, 18-16.
