The Cincinnati Bengals dropped to 7-5 after losing 41-22 to the Los Angeles Chargers. Let’s check out the winners and losers from this one. 

This was a game the Bengals needed to win, as it had massive implications for the seeding in the AFC. Cincinnati fell behind 24-0, battled back to make it 24-22, and ended up losing 41-22 despite having more than enough chances to flip the score and take the lead. It truly was an odd game, to say the least.

It was a bad loss for the Bengals but we saw them fight back despite the injury bug rearing its ugly head and the team getting blown out to start the game. It could have ended up like the loss to Cleveland but the guys fought hard to avoid that happening and I do have to give them props for that.

Cincinnati has another home game next week, this time against the 49ers in yet another tough game. San Francisco is currently fighting for playoff positioning as well so both teams will be motivated to win that one.

With all of that said and before we dive too much into the next opponent, let’s check out three winners and three losers from the 19-point loss to the Chargers.
