With a nice 16-10 comeback win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Cincinnati Bengals are now 7-0.

The Bengals’ Week 8 win over the Steelers was an emotional roller coaster filled with high’s, lows, optimism, pessimism and trash talk. For better or for worse, social media is what it is, and people are going to let the world know what they think on Twitter, even before the game is over.

Here’s our social media recap for the week, focusing on the Cincinnati Bengals’ showdown with the Steelers in Pittsburgh.

Le’Veon Bell suffered a knee injury early in the first quarter. While this was a huge loss for the Steelers as a football team, more people seemed to care about his absence from their fantasy lineup. Fantasy Football can be good for football, but it’s when Fantasy Football addicts forget that these players are people too.

I had some fun giving Steelers fans a hard time after the play. Does that make me a bad person? Maybe…

This Steelers fan had a great comeback, so I had to include it in here as well.

Later on in the game, Andy Dalton threw a couple of picks. The first interception was bad, but it came on a play immediately following what could’ve been the worst no-call in NFL history. Twitter had its fun, of course.

Andy Dalton had his revenge, however, leading the Bengals to victory and proving his doubters wrong for another week.

Up next for the Bengals: a Thursday night matchup with the Cleveland Browns.
