Some losses just stay with you forever.
Seattle Seahawks fans will never forget their controversial Super Bowl XL loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. They’ll always wonder if the officials wouldn’t have missed a call here or missed another call there, would they have been celebrating the city’s first championship?
New England Patriots fans will always wonder what it would’ve felt like to have an undefeated season.
Cleveland Browns fans will always wonder about The Fumble and The Drive.
The sobering reality Cincinnati Bengals fans face is they’ve played exactly three truly meaningful games in their entire existence—and they’ve lost them all.
The following list describes those three losses along with a few more. The 2011 season is going to be difficult, so we might as well just self-destructively wallow in our self-pity for a bit.
So, Bengals fans, grab some ice cream, cupcakes, and Sour Patch Kids and let’s take a depressing stroll down memory lane.
