The Bengals season ends

Today, the Cincinnati Bengals lost their Wild Card playoff game to the Houston Texans, 31-10. Look this game was over at the end of the first half. With less than two minutes to play in the first half, Bengals QB Andy Dalton threw a pick to Texans defensive tackle J.J. Watts who took it in for a touchdown to make it 17-10. Why do I think the game ended there? Because the Bengals gave up in the second half. That was evident when Texans RB Arian Foster ran over the Bengals for a 41 yard touchdown in the fourth quarter making it 31-10. As the NBC color commentator pointed out, the Bengals have to tackle, and the Bengals let him run for a touchdown. Embarrassing.

If you're a Bengals fan, you expect this type of game. Or expect a heart breaking loss in the last minute. But what about the season? Let's face it, I expected a two to three win season. And it's hard to hate these Bengals. So my fellow Bengals fans, cry in your beer tonight, and we'll talk about whether we should have hope for the future of these Bengals tomorrow.
