The Cincinnati Bengals suffered a 27-24 defeat at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, which was made even more bitter the Ravens’ social media team gloating about the win. The Ravens, who now hold a 2-0 record for the season, took to Twitter to mock the ESPN experts who had predicted a Bengals victory.
In a tweet posted the Baltimore Ravens’ official account, a graphic was shared showing the pictures of the nine ESPN experts who had chosen the Bengals to win against the Ravens in Week 2. Beneath the images, a photo of Lamar Jackson celebrating the victory can be seen. The tweet was accompanied five devil emojis, emphasizing the Ravens’ satisfaction in disproving the experts’ predictions.
The Bengals were considered strong contenders for the Super Bowl this season, which likely influenced the experts’ predictions in their favor. However, the team endured a disappointing performance in Week 1, while the Ravens demonstrated their dominance in their first match-up. Clearly, the Ravens were motivated to prove themselves as the underdogs in this game.
While the Ravens relish their triumph for now, the Bengals will have an opportunity for redemption when they face off again on a Thursday night game in November. However, after two weeks of play, the Bengals find themselves in a challenging position and will need to find a way to climb out of this early hole.
In conclusion, the Cincinnati Bengals’ loss to the Baltimore Ravens was not only disheartening for the team but also subjected them to social media taunts from the Ravens’ gloating Twitter account. The Bengals will have to regroup and refocus to overcome this setback and prove their worth in future games.
