I don't even want to rant about the Bengals problems. I'm just asking if anyone can remember a crew as inept as that one.
I don't know what was worse: the skipped pass for a completion, the phantom PI call on Dhani on 3rd down, or the phantom defensive holding on that last drive. I understand what defensive holding is on the line but Pat Sims did absolutely nothing on that play and got flagged for it. It would have been 3rd and long with 4+ minutes on the clock but instead the Browns got a first down and ran out the clock. Of course, the Bengals could have manned up and stopped them...
