The Cincinnati Bengals have a way of generating big reactions when they get together with the Baltimore Ravens.
This time it’s because of a loss to those Ravens, a 27-24 affair that moved the Bengals to 0-2 on the season.
It wasn’t Sam Hubbard’s fumble return for a touchdown from the playoff game by any means, but Sunday’s matchup had plenty of big moments.
One of the biggest was Joe Burrow limping off the field late.
A slow start from Burrow’s offense, big plays by rookies and key moments had fans talking after the game.
Here’s a look at some of the best social media reactions to the game from onlookers.
Joe Burrow limped heavily at the end of the game. We'll hear from him and Zac postgame.

Joe Burrow did not look good at all coming to the sideline. Looks like he hurt that calf again.

If Joe Burrow’s calf is that bad they should have just sat him the first two weeks. Now you’re 0-2 and he’s limping off the field

This Ravens team is great, but losing at home to them here sucks. They're without CB1, a very good starting safety, 2 of their best OL, and their most explosive RB. Concern level rising for me about this Bengals team.

This takes things firmly from bad to worse. Nightmare scenario if Burrow aggravated the calf badly on top of the 0-2 start. https://t.co/01NVjS7JKs

Joe Burrow had a grimace of pain for every step leaving the field.
Two losses and a calf injury is a terrible cocktail. #Bengals

Burrow can hardly walk and Aaron Donald comes to town next week.
You gotta think long term if it’s still as bad as it looks.

The Bengals start another season 0-2 as Joe Burrow limps off the field.

Burrow grimaced more than once as he gingerly walked off the field toward the #Bengals locker room.

I expected 0-2 but seeing Joe Burrow limp off the field is massive hit to overall confidence

Watching Burrow limp after the game is very concerning.

I don't like how Burrow looks after the game. That's two weeks in a row he's taken a lot of abuse after already being injured in the preseason. That limp didn't look good. Hopefully he shakes It off though.

What haircut will Joe Burrow get now?

We are all going to comfort ourselves with the knowledge that the Bengals started 0-2 last season, but Baltimore came in limping and found a way to win, and the Ravens are likely to get healthier, and better.

QB & coaching are the 2 biggest factors in winning. Burrow is NOT himself yet. Our coaches are not anywhere near the top. 2 years in a row a rusty Burrow and awful coaching put this team in an 0-2 hole. The Burrow thing isnt controllable but the coaching gap can be fixed.

They were 0-3 in the division last year before rattling off 10-straight wins https://t.co/GliEiAKMQk

A healthy Lamar
A revamped browns DL and defense
0-2 ain’t gonna work in the AFC North this season fellas.
— Andrew Russell (@Andrew_Russell7) September 17, 2023
The Burrow pick was the game.
You don’t throw it at the very least it’s 13-13.
Same as last year big pick at a momentum swing
