No, it only cost the Bengals the game in this instance because they play bullfighter defense.
BTW, seems like the exact same bugaboo, not being able to stop another team when it counts, reared its head twice today. Pittsburgh sliced right through the Bengals' defense for a late game tying field goal and then needed only one possession in overtime to knock the Bengals out of the playoffs.
Just remember where you heard this: "If the playoff door opens for the Bengals this weekend, it's entirely possible they'll have to close out a close game to earn entrance into the next round."
Bad as that call against the Bucs may have been, all it did was expose a fairly massive flaw with the Bengals.
