While Vontaze Burfict and Pacman Jones have received the bulk of attention after the Bengals epic meltdown last Saturday, we now turn to the third player to blame, Jeremy Hill. Hill’s unfortunate fumble late in the 4th quarter sparked the domino effect that led to Pittsburgh’s game winning field goal, bouncing Cinci from the playoffs yet again.
Courtesy of Inside the NFL, here’s Hill’s reaction following his fumble.
Tough knowing that your mistake (compounded with many other mistakes) directly led to your team sitting on the couch this weekend. We’d feel bad for Hill, but it’s hard to feel bad for the Bengals when Burfict, Jones and Hill are front and center.
Good luck next year, Cinci. We have a good feeling Marvin Lewis will lead you back to the playoffs.
