Bengals Rookie RB Clearly Doesn’t Understand the Definition of “Worse”

On Thursday night the Cleveland Browns beat down AFC North nemesis Cincinnati Bengals in a game that wasn’t nearly as close as the 24-3 final score indicated. Which is saying something because even in the defense defunct state of football, a three touchdown defeat is still pretty substantial.

It was a bad look for the Bengals playing at home, but nobody walked away looking worse than quarterback Andy Dalton, who had a historic evening. Historically terrible. 

Dalton was 10-of-33 for 86 yards, zero touchdowns, three interceptions and was sacked twice for a total of 14 yards. His QB rating, a which is measured between 0-158.3, was 2. It was the worst single game performance from a QB with 20 or more pass attempts of all time.

Although Bengals coach Marvin Lewis was a close second. In his 12th season at the helm in Cincinnati, Lewis is now 6-19 in primetime regular season games. The team has become regulars in the postseason of late, but are 0-5 in the playoffs under Lewis.

With plenty of blame to go around within that locker room after that drubbing, Bengals rookie running back Jeremy Hill went a decidedly different direction when reflecting on the outcome during post game interviews.

“They’re probably worse than I thought, to be honest with you,” Hill told ESPN’s Coley Harvey, referring to the Browns dominant performance. “They didn’t do anything special to me. I mean, respect to them, they won the game. But that’s all I’ll give them.”

Wow. So if the Browns are just mediocre and a lot worse than Hill thought, how stunningly inept and just generally wretched must the Bengals be?

To get an idea of just how bad the night was for Cincinnati, here’s a gallery of Hill’s highlights:
