Bengals were only team to blow 14-point halftime lead - twice


The Vikings almost blew a 17-point lead to the Saints on Sunday, but a miraculous touchdown as time expired spared them the infamy.

Leaving the Bengals as the only team to squander a halftime lead of 14 or more this season. And they did it twice.

Cincinnati led Green Bay 21-7 on Sept. 24 before falling 27-24. It led Pittsburgh 17-3 at the break only to lose 23-20 on Dec. 4.


Add that to the list of Bengals misfortunes endured in 2017. But hey, at least the Steelers lost, so 2018 is already looking up.
