The Bengals loss was more frustrating in the sense that they gave it away. The Bengals held what felt like a comfortable 21-10 lead midway through the fourth-quarter, but offensive miscues and turnovers would keep the Bears in the game, and after a redzone fumble by Mohamed Sanu, the Bears drove down the field for the game-winning score, a 19-yard TD pass to Brandon Marshall.

There was still 8 minutes left in the game, but after a Bengals three-and-out, the Bears ran-out the clock, and a Rey Mauluga personal foul penalty with 1 minute left on 4th-down allowed the Bears to run the clock out, and dropped the Bengals to 0-1.

So needless to say, both teams have a bad taste in their mouths they’ll be looking to wash out in the midst of what should be another slobberknocker of an AFC North game.
