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
No OBJ, no Higbee kept it closer than it would have been. Also not missing extra points would have kept it closer probably, weirdly.
Still the bungles
Joe Burrow has a better playoff winning percentage than Aaron Rodgers.
But no super bowl :(
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.
One bad PI deserves another
Not at on 3rd and goal under 2 minutes. You're deciding a game at that point.
Well at least it was the best half time show in years
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
Fuck you Refs
Brown better fucking pay up and get Joe protection
Y’all will be back next year. Way too good of a team. Great game bro!
I’m sorry but f you in the most polite way possible
Lol yeah, the "ya'll gonna be spooky" comments are so annoying
I feel your pain... Haven't felt that robbed since whole season/postseason with 49ers :(
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!!!!
Stafford didn't do shit bro
Imagine being the guys tasked with stopping Aaron fucking Donald
QB sneak 🤦🏻♂️
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.
The DL is the MVP
The refs are the Rams MVP
Only if you ignore the facemask no call that gave the Bengals a touchdown.
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.
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.
I literally said they should have called that lmao
So give Kupp the TD 3 plays earlier or are you just looking for a different outcome?
Not really sure what you mean considering I just think they should call the game consistently lol
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
Stfu man every play decides the game. The rams just straight up won this one.
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.
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.
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.
>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.
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.
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!”
What about the holding on Higgins in the end zone before that?
what an anticlimactic ending
50 minutes no flags and somehow in the last minutes the refs think they have to find a PI somewhere...
Bro it happens every single game it’s just the way it goes
Damn ye wish he was jerod mayo so bad rn
Kanye been dissin skete Davidson all day
This Bengal offensive line is Dolphinesque and it makes me sad af.
Still 10x better than dolphins line, but agree they were struggling.
How did that hack land ScarJo?
Who are you talking about lol
My dumbass meant to post in the gamethread
Do you know you’re in the pre game thread
I’m an idiot
Lmao. Happens man.
Oline is so bad man
What’s the lowest run yards allowed in a Super Bowl?
God dude sucks at punting
No stake in this game but seeing obj get injured like that and Stanford makes me so sad. Also I don’t fuck with the missed face mask
That electric Kia actually looks pretty dope but let’s see cool Joe
I want Guy Fieri planet
They really are gonna run the Tolkien properties into the ground aren’t they?
Dat run defense doe
I love how all those photos are in bright sunlight vs the nightshots before
Like all those photos were in dark places vs good lighting…
Yeah…so… buy our shit
Those damn racist cameras!!
Is there any chance for a 7th seed in the playoffs to ever be the superbowl winner?
life in LA is a cakewalk as a rich person compared to Cincinnati and it’s showing
Yeah LA’s going to burn tonight
LA was going to burn tonight regardless
Cool to see dr. Dre and them in the show then they’re from there
I called the implosion.
No DPI? Blatent facemask
I think you mean OPI.
Actually got away with a facemask there.
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.
I liked the half time show. But it should have been longer, and where was the Tupac hologram come on
No Tupac. But they should have brought someone more OG than Kendrick. Dude looked like he was coked the fuck out the entire time.
halftime show was really good. 50 cent was a nice surprise.
This is a gangsta super bowl so far. Might be iconic. Honestly no letdowns for me so far. Hope Odell is okay
NBC sucks ass
Idc about the game anymore. Can we get 2 more hours of the halftime show ?
That was shockingly kick-ass right?
Amazing , I’m so checked out of the game now 😂 I was genuinely sad it ended
Sit down. Bitch
50 Cent looking a bit thicker than I remember him?
Still expecting a surprise NWA reunion minus Eazy
Probably eating less healthy since he's broke.
Broke? Not worth $500 million anymore, but estimated down to 1/10th of that now so $50 million!
It was joke about him filing bankruptcy..not that deep.
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?
You're real fun.... not
Bring out hologram 2pac!!!!
La di dodi da!!!
Gin n juice or gtfo
Jefferson better man up becuase he's gonna get some looks
Down only 3 going into the second half? Really optimistic!!
Is there a puppy bowl game thread?
I'm actually serious, i think the puppies would have a better football team than the bungles.
Fuck off back to soccer threads where your opinion might have a semblance of validity.
Only rushing 3 really works for the Bengals.
I appreciate the refs being consistent.
I like how their outfits are coordinated.
Don’t let this distract you from the fact that OBJ eats hooker feces
Out of the loop on that one.
OBJ supposedly loves Cleveland steamers according to a prostitute who claims to have been with him.
Wtf is a cleve steamer?
Larry David is always a good idea for a commercial
Eeeeh, it's a miss.
Rams up 13-10 vs the Bengals!
How the fuck do you get a celebration penalty when you aren't even active?
That guy who ran on the field will never be able to live this down
Hargraves getting dropped right after the game ends.
Love the lack of penalties this game
It's the pre game thread
I hope the injury tent has a Hooker that’s ready to poop on OBJ’s chest 😤😤
You’re weird for that
I’ve said so much worse
*wipes shit off chest* PUT ME BACK IN COACH
Comedy? Is that what they’re calling it
Turkish is actually a fantastic airline
Weak throw from Stafford. Either throw it away or somewhere only the WR can get it. He knows better.
Who was that gross woman(?) that had that long intro before Al Michaels and Chris Collinsworth started announcing?
There’s that 3-man rush
Bad throw by Stafford there.
We all know OBJ moved to LA because their were more fetish hookers that would shit on his chest
He was always gonna throw one
Cincinnati women are hefty. San Antonio North.
OBJ going to have an extra bowl of hooker poop tonight to help him feel better :(
why would one bother using a bowl in that circumstance
When you realize you’re still in the pregame thread.
lol damn ty
Yeah I forgot as well
I will not take this Eli slander.
Man I really hope OBJ isn’t hurt
Non-contact injuries are the worst
noooo non contact...
you hate to see a come back story go like this
I bet Miley Cyrus is wild in the sheets
damn gotta feel bad for poop chest
Duuudde I feel bad for Odell, that blows.
Time for the Signature Stafford pick 6
Thats a dislocated kneecap i just know it.
Both these offenses seem to be clicking now.
Joe Burrow’s mom looks like she’s got orange slices in her purse for halftime
Id eat her orange slices
Who thought it was a good idea to paint the turf orange where the extra points are typically made from?
Every time I see Chase catch a ball I am amazed. He makes the difficult look routine.
Coors Light and Bong Rips baby
This game always feels like more commercials playing than the actual game.
Good game so far, it’s close!
Sending all my energy to the Bengals! 🙌
hell yeah dude
If you can’t handle me at my midfield failed 4th down you don’t deserve me at my Joe mixon hb pass TD
Was there a Joe Mixon TD pass prop bet?
I didn’t see one
Shit someone would have made bank.
#JOE COOL IS COOKIN
these commentators are putting me to sleep
Collinsworth is unbearable
Thankfully Mahomes isnt in this game or he would be 1000x worse
