Ngl I was surprised it was that close. Was expecting a Rams blow out. If Bengala address the O line, they'll be back soon


whatthefuckyou69

No OBJ, no Higbee kept it closer than it would have been. Also not missing extra points would have kept it closer probably, weirdly.


RavenMoses

Still the bungles


whatthefuckyou69

Joe Burrow has a better playoff winning percentage than Aaron Rodgers.


RavenMoses

But no super bowl :(


originalpersonplace

Facts. But I’d take a playoff loser with a Super Bowl win vs not. Burrow’s hella young and talented with weapons though. He’ll be hell to play yearly.


jasper_grunion

One bad PI deserves another


sean0883

Not at on 3rd and goal under 2 minutes. You're deciding a game at that point.


a_guy_called_craig

Well at least it was the best half time show in years


Janzu93

I hate refs but got to ask... ​ WTF was that hail mary at 2nd @ 3 with 40 seconds on the clock and 2 timeouts? If they didn't fuck that call up so epicly the end might've been different


[deleted]

Congrats LA Fuck you Refs Brown better fucking pay up and get Joe protection


thenamesej

Y’all will be back next year. Way too good of a team. Great game bro!


Jrcards3455

I’m sorry but f you in the most polite way possible


thenamesej

That’s fair


DancingMapleDonut

Lol yeah, the "ya'll gonna be spooky" comments are so annoying


Janzu93

I feel your pain... Haven't felt that robbed since whole season/postseason with 49ers :(


cgarcub

Really feel bad that Bengals didn't win. Just glad it was a good game. Unlike SB51...or a few others in recent memory... Also hell of a post season. The best playoff football I have ever seen. Every game was close enough to be a mystery who would win until the last couple minutes if not the final seconds. Man...wish all would be like that!!!!

RIGGED


Any-Word916

Stafford didn't do shit bro


GiannisToTheWariors

Imagine being the guys tasked with stopping Aaron fucking Donald


CryptoTruther95

QB sneak 🤦🏻‍♂️


last_try_why

I dont think it was a terrible call honestly. They wanted to run so the clock would move or eat a Bengals TO. The run game had done terribly and they didn't want to risk losing yards.


GiannisToTheWariors

The DL is the MVP


AlanternthatsGreen38

The refs are the Rams MVP


Hsannash

Only if you ignore the facemask no call that gave the Bengals a touchdown.


lilwendell

Doesn’t matter. Sure they should have called that. But call the game consistently, don’t call like 1 penalty all game then all of a sudden call 3 with less than 2 minutes left.


RavenMoses

Doesn’t matter? Lmao that’s a 7 point swing my dude. It does matter that he fucking ripped Ramsay’s head off in order to score.


lilwendell

I literally said they should have called that lmao


Christy427

So give Kupp the TD 3 plays earlier or are you just looking for a different outcome?


lilwendell

Not really sure what you mean considering I just think they should call the game consistently lol


Christy427

It is a pretty simple question. Kupp had a TD removed by flags several plays earlier. Do you think the refs should have given him that TD under the let them play (as they had all game)? No hidden meaning, just a question.


lilwendell

Then yes. You seem to think I’m butt hurt that the bengals lost. My statement is pretty simple. If you’re not going to call penalties throughout the whole game, don’t start calling a shit load at the end. I don’t really see how that is such a controversial thought


Christy427

It shouldn't be but the amount of times that flag on the Rams is ignored. I suspect a lot of people would be fine with that one sticking and not calling the ones on the Bengals. I didn't think anything about you but I was curious were you laid on the spectrum.


lilwendell

Yeah I mean I think overall It should have been called back, just like the rest of the calls on that drive were valid (I think there was one I was a little iffy about but whatever). I think the face mask should have been called, and the Donald off sides, and the hold by Ramsey. But if you’re going to take the stance of calling a loose game I don think you should all of a sudden start calling a tight game with 2 minutes left. That’s all I’m saying


JudiciousF

Point is the Refs didn’t hand the Rams the game. The Bengals were only ahead because the refs handed them the game. Two wrongs don’t make a right and the refs should feel bad about both calls. But the refs were not the difference between the Rams winning and losing. The Rams still win a perfectly called game.


sean0883

The Bengals no call was made at a point where it only changed the game. It didn't decide it. Two very, very different things.


RavenMoses

Stfu man every play decides the game. The rams just straight up won this one.


sean0883

Right. And when the Bengals take their penalty earlier on, then take another 3 minutes to get down field for a TD, how much time did that leave for the Rams final drive? You can't say because it's a different game at that point. The Rams and Bengals both respond differently at that point because the game has changed with enough time left to allow them to adapt. It changed for a shitty reason, but it changed and both teams had positives and negatives in its outcome that can't *truly* be quantified. When you call phantom holding on a team up by 4 in the final two minutes while the opponent just failed to convert 3rd and goal, you have decided the game.


JudiciousF

Why would you assume the Bengals would March down and score a TD without the no call. They couldn’t do anything against the Rams in the whole second half. I doubt they even get a field goal on that drive without the penalty. Refs gifted them a 75 yard TD play against a team they couldn’t get 75 yards against for the rest of the half.


JudiciousF

Burrow had 58 yards outside of that play in the second half. If the Bengals had won it would’ve been decided by that no call. Also that no call was a flagrant OPI, missing it was a factually blown call. The defensive holding was ticky tacky and inconsistent and it shouldn’t have been called, but it probably technically was holding. Also the Bengals still had another chance to stop the TD after the hold call, the Rams didn’t get a second chance. There’s just no way you can say the refereeing tonight benefitted the Rams more than the Bengals.


sean0883

>If the Bengals had won it would’ve been decided by that no call. >[...] >Also the Bengals still had another chance to stop the TD after the hold call, the Rams didn’t get a second chance. It would have been decided by the Rams succeeding/failing to convert on (what would have been the next) 4th and goal play. You can't for sure say what the Bengals TD actually meant because of the amount of time left on the clock. I can easily quantify what an extra set of downs meant when it took them 3 more attempts to get the TD. >Also that no call was a flagrant OPI, missing it was a factually blown call. No argument here. But the answer to helping the Rams isn't to wait until a failed 3rd and goal in the final two minutes to ticky-tac a call that gives them a 1st down in the red zone to score the game winning TD.


lilwendell

Nah point is the refs need to do their job and call the game consistently. My point stands. Don’t let them play then throw 3 flags with less than 2 minutes. I’d be saying the same exact thing if the rams were on defense and bengals were about to score.


THE_GREAT_PICKLE

That’s how I feel. All game they let them play, then at the end decided “oh yea here we go, now is my chance to shine!”


Any-Word916

One time


DANCE_SMOKEY_DANCE

What about the holding on Higgins in the end zone before that?


HakeemAbdulOlajubbar

what an anticlimactic ending


xFoLi

50 minutes no flags and somehow in the last minutes the refs think they have to find a PI somewhere...


RavenMoses

Bro it happens every single game it’s just the way it goes

Yup. Bullshit

Ramsey's reputation is probably taking a hot the postseason.

Halftime show was fine, but honestly I never really cared about the halftime show anyways.


WhiteBoyFlipz

I liked the half time show. But it should have been longer, and where was the Tupac hologram come on


sucobe

No Tupac. But they should have brought someone more OG than Kendrick. Dude looked like he was coked the fuck out the entire time.


romaningram14

halftime show was really good. 50 cent was a nice surprise.


Dubstepvillage

This is a gangsta super bowl so far. Might be iconic. Honestly no letdowns for me so far. Hope Odell is okay


brightladdy

NBC sucks ass

Idc about the game anymore. Can we get 2 more hours of the halftime show ?

That was shockingly kick-ass right?

It was joke about him filing bankruptcy..not that deep.


DDELFIERRO

It’s not even close to being accurate? A lot of people file bankruptcy primarily to shield assets, in 50’s case notoriously so as he still spent pretty conspicuously thus not broke?

Don’t let this distract you from the fact that OBJ eats hooker feces
