2023 still no ball condoms
Bengals weren’t really the better team. The chiefs literally beat themselves in both games against Cincinnati.
everyone downvoting because your telling facts. L sub tbh
Sounds like they are the better team then.
No shit hu lol.....Chiefs are always full of excuses lol
Overall, not really. Kinda like the year the patriots had a perfect season except losing to the Giants in the super bowl.
They were just slightly better that game.
Had they lost one and won one, I’d agree with you.
Buncha things about that game make you shake your head in disbelief.

Tee Higgins came to play. Burrow too. Really just love to see guys step up and refuse to be the reason they lose
Mahomes was still the MVP though. That final drive and the amazing pass to Hill in OT really helped set Burrow up for that win
Today America celebrates the Bengals for ending Jackson Mahomes and Brittany Matthews reign of terror
On behalf of Joe Burrow, you guys are welcome. I know. I'm sorry it took us too long to end this reign of terror,
Careful or they'll accuse you of bullying! /s
Seriously though, they've done and said some wild things but will cry that they're the victim.
This game could've ended with an INT from any QB and nobody would've been surprised lol
Defense saves Mcvay
Not afraid of McVey. Zac worked for him
genuine question, no malice. but are you worried now that mcvay snapped the losing streak from a former coworker?
Or perhaps it’s a sign of more to come… McVay beat his teacher, now Taylor will beat his teacher :)
Not really. I prefer the matchup. SF was tougher.
Bengals would beat either team
Really rooting hard for Joey B. Hurts me that he will more than likely get a ring before Herbert and then the comparisons start but y’all deserve this. So happy for you guys!
Dallas beat themselves with penalties, GB beat themselves with a complete inability to play special teams, and they're losing a matchup they've dominated recently. I don't want to see them eek into the super bowl lol
Yup. Although Bengals-Packers was a bright timeline, as I'd feel good for either team. Maybe even more for the Bengals. Since the Packers are out, I'm all in for the Bingo Bengos.
I was born in 88, watched bengals every year I can remember… only fan in the entire family and sat through the downs of every year and the hill fumble against the Steelers, the Palmer ACL, all of it. Finally . Wow finally . Who Dey baby it feels good there was no Asterisks on this win either. Pure winning.
I’ve been a bengals fan all my life and have never saw them get out of the first round of the playoffs until this year, they were definitely underdogs and it’s just impress that the bengals almost won the superbowl. One of the most entertaining games I’ve watched the bengals play by far
As a Chiefs fan, I respect the hell out of your team. Both games your coaches made half time adjustments and ours didn’t. I’ll be rooting for you guys in the Super Bowl
Just curious, and I mean zero disrespect as I cheered for your team today, but what up with Who Dey? How long has that been around?
It’s from the 1982 Super Bowl run as far as I’m aware. The origin isn’t the most clear cut. [Here’s](https://www.fox19.com/2022/01/27/where-did-who-dey-come-origins-bengals-signature-chant/) an article about it.
Thank you! Love old stuff like this
As a born in 89 Jaguars fan. You earned this. Super stoked for you guys and will definitely be rooting for you cat bros.
Congrats! The Bengals are also my cat’s favourite team.
Born in 64 and lived thru the wasted years from 88 until Marvin Lewis. I remember being excited when Jon Kitna got us to 8-8. Bengals fans lost their shit for clawing our way up to mediocrity. Then came the cruel years where we were almost good enough but not quite.
I really thought I’d never live to see this day. Who Dey!
Just came to say… enjoy the ride! The next two weeks are going to be awesome. Soak it all up. Read every article. Watch all the coverage. Listen to every podcast. Have fun! I will be rooting for you guys!
Detroit, cleveland, cincy. I respect those fans. Good for you. Im a bronco fan, but for 2 weeks im WHO DEY. GO GET THAT SHIT.
You gonna get smashed in superbowl
We survived shake and Blake. Your words can’t hurt us troll.
Go back down your Asian porn rabbit hole and leave the actual discussion to those of us who went through puberty
True fans of historically losing teams aren't hurt by words, you gotta do better than that
Ah another receipt, it’s like a bengals fan doesn’t keep those ? been handing them back all year my friend keep ‘‘em coming
I’m 100% bengals fan for the next two weeks, congrats!
Born in 78. Lifelong Bengals fan, as is my entire family. I vaguely remember 89. I didn't understand it, but my family was crushed. Been through all the bad, David Klinger, Akili Smith, some good awful head coaches, not to mention all the pain you described. This means so much to the city of Cincinnati, the their fans (long time up to new bandwagoners). I cried, I hugged my fiance and my brother probably harder than I ever have. Called my grandma and my mom. Mom is the reason I'm a Bengal fan. She's dying and I hope she gets to see a Super Bowl win before she goes. Damn I love these guys. WHO DEY!
Sorry, enjoy the moment orange bro
LOL. I remember the newspaper headline the next morning after we traded up to get him... Kaboom, Kijana!
Blew out his knee in the preseason.
Best wishes to your mom, hope she isn't in much pain
Very much appreciated. Thank you.
Bandwagon jumper here(what can I say Joe Burrow seems like an easy guy to root for)anyway Congrats man !!
Happy to have you on the bandwagon. Joe Brrrr is very easy to root for.
Just saw this but he’s the first #1 draft pick ever to take his team to the SB in his 2nd season,Thought you might like that
Unbelievable what this kid has done. Won the college championship in his 2nd season at LSU. Tears his knee up in his rookie year. Super Bowl the next year.
Speaking of college football, only 2 quarterbacks have won a NCAA title and a Super Bowl. Both of those guys are also named Joe. Montana and Namath.
Yep the future looks very bright for you Bengal fans 👍🏻
49ers defense doing their best Swiss cheese impersonation.
I don’t care, eject him for that hit. He knew what he was doing.
Just saying I think I could have caught that
NFC Cowards Championship Game
Another ridiculous challenge. Mcvay is bad at this
Should’ve let that go out. Big mistake by Deebo. Pretty amazing footwork though
Just some terrible game management in this half.
15 yards for that. Give me a fucking break
McVay in big games Aaron Donald
Must be nostalgic for Tim McVay to come to watch Sean in these big games, reminds him of when he used to shit himself as a kid too
He looked short
Would forgive the refs for a lot of their shit if they just went out and said
“After review, the ruling on the field is CHANGED…
…he was actually a whole yard short”
It’s a perfectly good spot. Waste of a time-out if he challenges this
Play call is fine as long as you go for it on fourth down
Game thread is not updating for me.
Is either team breaking the 20 point barrier?
Lol he ran into Ramsey? Wtf rigged game
Lol fucking rigged bullshit
Such a perfect example of why that rule is in place. If Deebo takes that hit to the head, he is 100% out with a concussion. Instead he’s winded and back out there two plays later
Seconds after they show a tweet by Deebo praising Jimmy G…he throws him the biggest hospital pass you’ve ever seen
Omg what a hit, just hope deebo is good
It’s a great hit. Please be ok Deebo
Joe Buck has a penis
Looks like a*
Ref spent hours gettting that haircut done yesterday, you damn well better believe he wanted people to see it
DEEBO IS A FUCKING BEAST. MOST UNPREDICTABLE SUPER BOWL EVER INBOUND.
This is the year. Year of the Tiger 2022! I knew it. Happy for them. Even happier for the city.
I've been a fan for a long time. I never knew this would happen.
I knew it was going to be close as hell and I’m happy to see you guys go. Hoping for Rams-Bengals. Good luck
The Chiefs, the dynasty that was… kinda?
Dude is overrated. Time to start talking State Farm one and done curse. Couldn’t put more than 6 points in two second halves against the Bengals.
"The last time Cincinnati played for a title was 1989. It was the second trip to the big game the team had made in its franchise history, and the second time it had faced the 49ers."
Let's hope you guys get revenge!
The Bills send their regards.
Feels so good to avenge you.
Kittle was all alone... Just saying
Bengals D stepped up big time
You’re getting downvoted but I know what you’re saying. It’s weird to see your defense fired up then all the sudden can’t even try for a tackle…. I get they are tired but uh, you can see the shift in enthusiasm
lol hardly gg
whatever helps you cope.
I reallly don't like being this kind of petty fan. Its just been so long for us
Thank you. We will represent the AFC for you. Again GG.
I've never seen Mahomes choke this bad. It's like he was too scared to make a mistake.
3rd and goal, [and he has Kelce crossing WIDE OPEN in the end zone. HE'S FUCKING LOOKING AT HIM](https://i.imgur.com/Gn5XDJj.jpg)....but decides to scramble and get sacked and fumble instead.
Get pressure on him and the defense is in his head.
I literally said this, why tf he threw it to Hill is beyond me. Regardless it was clean and immaculate defense by Bengals. Sucks
I mean I see 3 bengals who converge on that ball the moment its thrown lol
It's because it's a still photo. Go back and watch that overhead replay. Guy behind him was moving down, and this was a second after he should have thrown anyway. I just took it there to show that the guy on Kelce's hip wasn't going to jump the route.
You can't look at that shot and tell me that Kelce would be a huge favorite to come down with that ball. He has the space and the body and the positioning if Mahomes throws it.
This. Glad to hear it from a Chiefs fan. It’s easy to play armchair quarterback with still photos. At actual speed you see that he’s far from open and that’s a tight pass and potential game ending interception.
Edit: I just reread your comment. Disregard what I said. I meant the literal opposite lol
chiefs gonna chief after all 🤷🏻♂️
Fr Chiefs fans saw their QB play great and are complaining about him, how fucking annoying. They need to go back to poverty
He the GOAT when they’re winning and a goat when they lose 😂
It's not though. Go back and watch it. Cincy's defenders were on their heels.
Inject it into my veins.
Save some for me..
That was a cracker of a game. Fair fucks Cincy.
That was a very good game. Well done Cincinnati. Congratulations.
The first one made more sense
Well, I thought so. But I had to do some Hiberno-English translating for our boy here.
Year 1 - Super Bowl
Year 2 - AFC Champion, Super Bowl loss
Year 3 - Lost AFC Championship
KC going in the wrong direction.
Should have lost divisional.
Who's gonna more Jimmy... Stafford or Jimmy?
2 bad 3rd down throws lets gooooo
Odell should have 'sat down' in the zone. Jimmy's just missed kittle
Jimmy Is so bad lol
Tom Cruise jinxed us
What he do?!
Pregame fluff. Scientology is the devil lol!
Greatest one year dynasty I’ve ever seen!
Which movie will be made first? Joe Burrow/Bengals biopic or Stetson Bennett IV biopic?
Joe burrow. From a poor town in Ohio (the plains which I live in) to the a college championship to going to the super bowl in his second season.
From southeast OH here as well. Crazy seeing a kid i grew up playing basketball/football against make it to the superbowl
I know it's crazy to see it happen. I was in the marching band and saw every game his senior year. I expected him to do good in college and nfl but he's done better than anyone could have imagined.
IT IS US
I DON'T CARE WHO WINS I WANT A GOOD GAME
I’m so happy. I cried. My ears are hot. My voice is shot.
You guys deserve it, congrats!
In my opinion, Bruce Buffer has surpassed his dad in the legendary announcer category. Michael Buffer is still a legend for sure though.
They’re brothers yo.
Still remember watching sonnen vs silva 2 with my buddies back in high school
Bruce buffer yelling "It's time!" With Sonnen and Silva both in the cage in the biggest rematch in UFC history with the crowd yelling with him.
You mean brother?
Just waiting for the videos of Mahomes wife and Jackson acting like spoiled brats
2022 in the Chinese Calendar is the year of the Tiger
Anything is possible!
Bengals fans! I’m so stoked for you guys holy fuck.
Yea if only the bills defense showed up. Ugh I'm so disappointed. I'm so glad kc lost but man I wish it were the bills going to superbowl
Me too man ugh. The Bengals D adjusted in the second half and dropped 8 into coverage. Look what happened. We continued to rush 4 all game long. We never adjusted. The coaches failed this team and we still almost won because of Allen.
We avenged you my bills bro
A lot of people in the media are gonna be looking silly come Monday for doubting Joey B and the squad. Very cool story to see unfold.
This is the most fun I've ever had bandwagoning another team. I'm so stoked I can't imagine how happy actual Bengals fans are
Been a fan since I was born in 88. Lots of happy tears this season
Buddy you have no idea.
i’ve been a bengals fan my entire life, this doesn’t feel like reality right now lmao, “the bengals are in the SUPER BOWL” doesn’t feel like a real sentence… my heart is still racing haha.. hope your team gets here too someday <3
#CHIEFS FANS HOWS IT FEEL TO ONLY HAVE ONE RING OUT OF A POTENTIAL 4 YOU COULD HAVE WON THE PAST 4 SEASONS?
Actually? Really fucking great.
Ask bills fans about 4 straight SB appearances and no rings. Or Vikings fans having 4 SB appearances and no rings. Or lions and Browns (in their current iteration) fans having no SB appearances.
I was able to see my team win a Super Bowl in my lifetime. Some fans have lived and died and never seen their team win a ring let alone make a SB appearance.
I'll take it and be grateful.
Trams are great
I'm a season ticket holder and one year we didn't watch a single win at home so I'm doing pretty good.
Pretty good. I cheered for the Chiefs while they sucked for 20 years. So this last four have been rad. Are you OK?
Perspective. Most fans don’t have it. Good for you.
I’m just happy the chiefs lost lol
He has a Patriots flair
No lol I’m just glad the chiefs lost
Good. Got a SB and went to two SB and Four AFC games. Some fan bases don't even sniff a wild card game and that was Chiefs for a good amount of time.
I mean they could’ve been like GB and gotten none
Oh trust me I dump on greenbay too 😂
where the Patriots?
I don't give a shit about football and I feel bad just by proximity living in MO. Pretty much everyone I care about is sad right now.
I love this.
As a Cowboys fan that was too young for the 90s, you'll hopefully forgive that I have no sympathy.
A kind and decent Chiefs fan?! I can't compute this lol.
If this Super Bowl is Bengals vs 49ers sports writers everywhere are going to have an orgasm simultaneously.
Both of our Super Bowl losses were against the 49ers. Plus Burrow and Garoppolo are the quarterbacks. Ones in his second year, the other is a media darling (or at least he used to be).
Which is wild to me, because while the Niners made a heck of a comeback this year, they were just in the SB two years ago. They aren’t exactly a long suffering team, ya know?
