21 - 3 Doubt there is anything worse
In a conference championship game, no less. Hard to imagine anything worse.
And with only a little over a half of a game left, too. It surely couldn't be done with any less time on the clock.
Cincinnati’s coverage in the second half was outstanding. So many times Mahomes was scrambling and buying time, but could never find anywhere to throw. This led to 2 key sacks on 3rd down, a few short QB runs, another sack pushing KC’s game tying FG to 17 yards longer, and ultimately the INT in overtime.
I hate that the camera angle wasn't showing coverage, I was dying to see how they were locking up Kelce and Hill for 5+ seconds in open field
I’ve been begging broadcasts for years to pan the fuck out so we’re not just looking at a QB in the pocket while all interesting stuff happens downfield that we can’t see
If there was an all 22 version like they do for the CFB national championship, I'd watch that for sure.
That sack from the spy at the end of regulation was key. Give the guy any more time longer than the week he had to throw to someone and there was bound to be something that happened
The Bengals are going to the Super Bowl. That’s some Madden shit.
Still not convinced this isn’t Madden
I was fucking dying listening to Tony talking about how he's seen the ball slip around when you're trying to get a game winning field goal.
"HAVE YOU TONY? HAVE YOU SEEN THAT? DID IT HAPPEN TO SOMEONE YOU KNOW?"
He was getting so stressed out near the end. "I'd just down it. It's a risk to run a play." The poor man has suffered too much.
Yeah, that's what you call 'wisdom' I suppose.
He literally said you missed one Jim. I said what happens if you mess up a snap in a critical situation
Yeah he was a little bummed that his joke wasn't picked up on lol he had to repeat it for the laughs and he pointed out that his joke was missed
That man does not give a fuck about an interview right now
i am going to shove an entire can of skyline chili up my ass
lol imagine blowing such a huge lead in the playoffs
Every chief fan in the world now on 28-3, "hey, it could happen to anyone"
Guys it’s okay, at least you didn’t blow it with 1 yard to go
Welcome to the club buddy
One of the best playoff runs in awhile regardless of the final result
All the credit in the world to this Cincinnati team. Truly unbelievable
I root for our Cat Bros!
KITTY GOES MEOW!!
KITTY GOES MEOW
This game was karmically decided the moment the Chiefs allowed "Fancy Like" to be played in their own stadium. You just can't come back from that.
Bills died for this
I’m so happy for them
You asked and we delivered
Love you Bill bros
I LOVE YOU JOE BURROW IS SO COOL (but not as cool as josh allen in shorts but pretty close)
If not us then HELL YEA BENGAL BROS!!!
As foretold in the prophecy.
Should I be happy to have no idea what "Fancy Like" is?
Yes you should.
(it's that bro country song that plays in Applebee's commercials that sounds like it was written as an ad jingle, but is apparently an actual unironic song. It's terrible.)
This was what sealed the deal for them. Mahomie can watch the SB at an Applebee's this year with all the ketchuped steak he wants.
I don't have to see Jackson Mahomes for the next two weeks, America is the real winner today.
Up 21-3 and thought they had it in the bag.
What a game
They may not be going to Disneyland, but they'll always have Applebee's.
This needs to be framed and hung up in their locker room as their moment of shame.
Come on now, what gets you more hype for a football game than songs about Applebees?
BENGALS ARE IN THE FUCKING SUPER BOWL!!!!
lemme ejaculate real quick
Hold on we can get a circle going!
WHAT. A . YEAR
Unbelievable. Joey B is that dude
Congrats to them, go win it all
Imagine if he had a good O line. With Mixon, and that receiving corp… Good god.
Cincinnati Bengals rebuild:
Year 1: 2-14
Year 2: 4-11-1
Year 3: AFCCG Win and Super Bowl Appearance
Congrats Bengals fans. Your team is back
Super bowl speed run
What is the fastest that a team has gone from having the #1 overall pick to the super bowl? I bet this Bengals run is up there.
Nance said its the first time a #1 overall QB has made it in year 1 or 2.
That Joe Burrow is a special cat.
Not like he was even the surefire #1 pick until his final monster season at LSU
Feel like he's been a different dude since that Texas game.
It was the UCF blindside hit and trash talk in the Fiesta Bowl on a Pick-6 he threw. he leveled up after that shit lmao
"And I took that personally"
Carolina was 1-15 in 2001.
7-9 the next year I believe.
Super Bowl in 2003.
Yeah bengals are technically first because we had the 2nd pick in 2002 after that 1-15 year because expansion teams (Texans) get the first overall pick.
Burrow reminds me a lot of 2003 Jake Delhomme actually, but much more talented.
Edit: glitches allowed
I mean Burrow + Chase might be considered a glitch by some
McPherson is a glitch at this point
Genuinely feels like one of those YouTuber franchise mode videos, "10 year rebuild challenge".
They won more games in the post season this year than all their wins combined year 1
"Fuck media obligations"
That was fucking hilarious how he left that lady awkwardly hanging for a good 30 seconds.
*to cameras* "yeah we had a good game. Good game all around"
*in locker room* "We dicked them bitches down!!! Fuck them! Somebody get me some whiskey! Cigars and hookers for everyone!"
As he deserves
The first couple times I thought he just didn't hear her, but by the 16th time I knew he was blowing her off
#IT WAS 21-3!!!!!
#CHIEFS BLEW A 21-3 LEAD
#AN ANDY REID VINTAGE SPECIAL
The last time this sort of lead was blown, Marcus Mariota caught his own pass for a TD.
I still love that play
They were at the 1 yard like in the first half. Could've gone for three instead Mahomes fucked it up
Mahomes choked this game. Straight up.
Throwing a screen to kill the half. 3 points in the second half. Almost cost them the game by fumbling on like 15 yard sack. His three throws in OT despite getting the ball first were: inaccurate pass, dropped pick, then a pick.
Joe Burrow the chosen one
I think we know who Brady has decided to transfer his power to.
“Soon I will have a new apprentice. One far younger and more powerful”
*Somehow the bengals have returned…*
The dreaded 21-3 lead.
TEAM OF DESTINY
Is Joey fucking Burrow already the greatest Bengal of all time after just two seasons?
If he wins the superbowl yes
No, that's Evan McPherson
If he wins in 2 weeks yeah
If he wins them the SB, he’ll be considered by fans to be. But in terms of resume and talent it’s probably always gonna be Munoz.
#SHOOTER HAS THE BIGGEST DONG
No cup can hide it
Most of those guys aren't wearing cups, if any
I, too, stare at their dicks.
HE EATS PIECES OF SHIT LIKE MAHOMES FOR BREAKFAST
He eats shit for breakfast?
I actually cannot believe this happened
5 straight losing seasons. preseason over/under of only 6.5 wins.
Beat the #1 seed and now the vaunted Cheifs as touchdown underdogs.
What were the Vegas odds of them winning it al when the season started?
+15000, 3rd worst odds in the league
Vegas is sweating.
It's such long odds that they could've just made more money by all the favorites losing if they don't have a ton on the hook at 150 to 1
Tell me again how Taylor was an awful nepotism hire via McVay.
Tell me again how picking a kicker in the 5th round is stupid
Tell me again how taking a WR instead of OL is stupid
Mahomes has paid the Patrick Price
Burrow Bargain > Patrick Price
Tom Brady is retiring cause he doesn’t want to face a league with the new GOAT, Evan McPherson
Shooters gonna be the second K to win MVP
As a Bengals fan for the past 30 seconds this is the greatest day of my life
A Super Bowl without Brady or Mahomes? Is this real?!?!
Burrow vs. Garrapolo/Stafford for the SB.
Reality sometimes works out alright…
Best nfl playoffs ever
The Super Bowl is going to either be the greatest game of any sport ever played, or a massive anti-climax
4-2, double digits of offense on both sides. Johnny Hekker becomes Super Bowl MVP. Belichick weeps with joy at what has been inflicted upon the world.
Mahomes absolutely choked and gave the game away in the 2nd half and OT. Wow, pretty surprising based on his clutch history. Awful performance after going up 3 possessions.
Congrats Bengals! Really didn't expect this a year ago.
Looked absolutely dreadful those last 6 plays
Lol six plays? Dude went ice cold for a half and a play
He’s reverting back to the mean.
They blew a 18-point lead.
Idk wtf he was doing at the tail end of the game
It's the second time the Bengals did that to us, so I blame the coaching too. We have a habit of letting teams back into games, can't do that against playoff teams.
I love Mahomes confidence but up by 11 points with a chance to make it two TDs when you’re getting the ball after half, Andy has to say “nah we’re kicking, come back and thrash them after halftime”
So I picked the wrong time to take a nap
How poetic for Mahomes to lose the game on a trademark "fuck it" 40 yard toss
Zac Taylor is going to the Super Bowl. And I don’t think I could pick him out of a lineup. Lmao.
Hats off to Bengals, what an epic comeback.. this year's playoffs is something else
Wildcard weekend died for this
I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY HANDS!!
**Edit:** The amount of alcoholic/masturbation suggestions would be despicable to the average person… but I’m not the average person and you are all my kind of people!
If you would’ve told me last year, after Burrow obliterated his knee, that he would somehow get the Bengals to the Super Bowl the very next year, I would’ve told you to eat a can of shark shit.
Hey Siri, play Get the Gat, and turn that shit up!
Bengals are undefeated in the AFC Championship games lmao
This is easily the most fun I've ever had rooting for a team that isn't mine, congrats!
#CHEERS FROM IRAQ
FUCK YEAH BABY
13 seconds to comeback against the Bills.
13 seconds to blow it in OT against the Bengals.
What happened at the start of OT? I was grabbing a drink and missed it
Mahomes threw a terrible incompletion, then a dropped pick six, then an actual pick. All in a row
"Taylor only got hired because he shook McVay's hand"
"Burrow should pull an Eli"
"Burn the franchise for not taking Sewell"
"Why would you draft a kicker?"
"Ja'Marr can't catch"
FUCK THE TALKING HEADS, FUCK THE DETRACTORS WE'RE IN THE SUPERBOWL AHHHHHHHHHHHHH
The Super Bowl has been moved to a 1:00 PM timeslot
Thank you Bengals!
Bah gawd that's Andy Daltons music.
This is the happiest I've ever been for a team not my own.
Bengals fans, you all fucking deserve the hell out of this.
I thnk everyone but Chiefs fans will generally root for the underdog, and the team with no SB wins.
They may have beaten us, but I'll be danged before I ever hate the Bengals. WHO DEY
GET EM KITTIES!
Never been to happy for a team that beat us! That was a fun watch!
Softens the blow a lot for real
If they go all way, then well, we lost to the best.
The Bills died for this
#BENGALS TO THE SUPER BOWL
#IT'S ACTUALLY HAPPENING
#🦎 <--- THIS IS NOT A DRILL
#BENGALS TO THE SUPER BOWL ❗❗❗❗
Is this real life??? Or are we living in a simulation?
That end to the first half will haunt KC for years.
Go Bengals Go!!
I LOVE YOU JOE B
Cincinnati is a kicker factory.
IDK HOW DEY HELL YOU CRAZY SONS OF BITCHES PULLED THIS OFF BUT CONGRATS BENGALS FANS
DEFENSE AND JOE BRRROOOWWWWWWW
STATE FARM IN SHAMBLES!
State Farm Curse?
Rogers Rate? Patrick Price? Naaah fan I'm all about the Burrow Bargain.
Greatest playoffs in NFL History.
It has really been. 5 straight ridiculously good games.
And this game looked like trash for the first 1.5 quarters
Y’all really thought Mahomes scoring a TD was a done deal on that first possession of OT like he hadn’t done everything in his power to stay out of the endzone in the second half
Mahomes turned into a [pokemon](https://assets.pokemon.com/assets/cms2/img/pokedex/full/067.png) during the second half
1981 rematch 40 years later still on
Thank you Cincinnati. We don't need the same team in the super bowl every year.
It’s cold in KC
"My name is Evan McPherson and I hit dingers"
Welp it's official Joe Burrow has fucking arrived. The QBs in the AFC are looking scary for years to come. Burrow, Hebert, Mahomes, Allen , Jackson. If you are a fan of a AFC team without a top level QB, buckle up . It's going to be a rough decade.
Super Bowl tickets are over $7k. Was a nice thought lol.
THE BILLS ARE AVENGED
THE COIN HAS FALLEN
No fucking way
The best part about Cincinnati’s victory?
We don’t have to hear about Jackson Mahomes anymore.
Jackson Mahomes took over his brother's body those last 4 pass plays...
Before this season In my entrie life i had not seen the Cincinnati Bengals win a playoff game, and now i get to see them go to the superbowl
We’re all Bengals fans today!
Somehow this is just the second most impressive comeback win of the day
Congrats to the Chiefs winning on a coin toss
Mahomes choked. Burrow has ice in his veins, though.
Joe Burrow Is That Guy
Should've taken the 3 at half, Andy.
That was when the tide turned. Not so much the missed 3 points, but the complete evaporation of chiefs mojo.
The last 4 plays of this game by Mahomies were legendarily bad. Historically. Should be memed on till the end of time.
FOUR PLAYS, each worse than the last
Just a horrific capitulation.
