Heading into Super Bowl week, it still feels like a punch to the gut. The Cincinnati Bengals got within a game short of heading to a consecutive appearance at the big game but unfortunately, things didn't turn out as we all wanted. At any rate, the offseason begins for the Bengals as it should be interesting to see how they handle some of their areas of need. Especially getting quarterback Joe Burrow getting his well-deserved contract extension sooner rather than later.
Hopefully, this year's Super Bowl is a great one and delivers. As fans of football come together all across the globe, they'll undoubtedly be conversations that the Bengals should have beaten the Chiefs but it is what it is. Time heals all and by now, it shouldn't sting as much as it did a week ago.
