Found January 05, 2013 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Cincinnati has been in the playoffs four times in the past eight years. Why does that sound wrong? Why does that not command more respect? Possibly because each of those four times, the Bengals have swiftly exited via an unwatchable loss. The best you can say about this one is at least it wasn’t by multiple scores, which was the case with the previous three. The Texans were practically begging for an upset today. Great job not getting A.J. Green involved until the second half. Andy Dalton is awful. Way to miss an open receiver on 3rd down then check down on a 4th and 11 with the game on the line. It’s nice to have two Joe Flaccos in the AFC North. The post Thanks For Nothing, Bengals appeared first on Kissing Suzy Kolber.

Dalton, offense let Bengals down again in playoffs

The defense was playoff-worthy for most of the season. Andy Dalton and the offense fell apart in the biggest moments.

Dalton and the offense imploded again during a 19-13 loss in Houston on Saturday, the second...

Bengals look back at another playoff letdown

JJ Watt wags finger at Bengals after block

It seemed like the whole game all wrapped into the one play, yet the moment was so brief. J.J. Watt jumped into the air knocking down an Andy Dalton pass. The ball flew backwards and then the Texans defender shook his finger at the Bengals. Watt is either telling the Bengals not to try that junk again or telling their quarterback his total number of passing yards. H/T BigLeadSports

Bengals lose to Texans 19-13, extend futility

Couldn't stop Arian Foster. Couldn't make that one big play when it was right at their fingertips. And, in an ending so sickeningly familiar, the Bengals couldn't break one of the NFL's longest streaks of playoff futility. Plenty of blame to go around for this one. Andy Dalton overthrew an open A.J. Green in the end zone in the closing minutes, and the Houston Texans...

Cincinnati Bengals: Wild Card Round Power Rankings (#10)

The Bengals have made the playoffs for the 2nd straight year, but like last year, they did it by winning the games they were supposed to and nothing else (well not technically nothing else this year, but close to it). The Bengals went 9-0 against non-playoff teams last season, but 0-7 against playoff teams, a number that grew to 0-8 when they lost to the Texans in the first round...

Reaction to another Bengals playoff loss

I tend to be the level headed Bengals fan. I see you on twitter, on almost every bad play there is the barrage of tweets calling for so and so to be fired, or so and so to be cut. It is an instant reaction to what you just witnessed on your TV screen. One suck conversation after the Bengals again lost to the Houston Texans in the opening of the playoffs was this:   I love that...

Houston beats Bengals in wild-card playoff

HOUSTON (AP) -- Couldn't stop Arian Foster. Couldn't make that one big play when it was right at their fingertips.

This year’s NFL playoffs begin the same way they did last season, with the Bengals heading to Houston to take on the Texans.
