There's really no other way to explain how everyone in Philly is feeling right now following another *atrocious* Eagles game. If this tie against the Bengals stood alone, maybe it wouldn't be too bad - but considering this is their third consecutive terribly played game and have started off the 2020 season 0-2-1 ... yeah, not good.
The fact it went into overtime and we had to witness more mediocre football on both ends just made things even worse.
And it couldn't have ended any bleaker than having seconds left on a game clock and passing up an attempt for a field goal. Looking back at this game though, it's exactly how it should've ended.
Even though this technically isn't a loss, Eagles fans are (rightfully) treating it like one.

Really just wasted my time watching y’all struggle against the bengals just to finish the game in a tie— Zay (@ZayMxnsta) September 27, 2020
That was one of the worst displays of football I’ve ever seen— Corey Sharp (@ByCoreySharp) September 27, 2020

Realizing the Eagles can’t even beat the Bengals and we still have 13 more games to play. pic.twitter.com/bq1bWl6kny— The Philly Special Podcast (@PhillySpecialPC) September 27, 2020
there have been 10 ties in the last 18 NFL seasons— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) September 27, 2020
four of them involved the Cincinnati Bengals
two of them have been Eagles-Bengals games, even though the two teams only play once every 4 years
Basically, to sum things up:
