CINCINNATI (AP) — Marvin Lewis went to sit in his chair and realized someone had lowered it. The chair didn't cooperate as he struggled to get it to a comfortable level."I guess that's what happens when you get beat up Dre Kirkpatrick Jersey ," the Bengals coach joked.Beat up, and then some. The Bengals unraveled in prime time yet again, playing their worst game on the Sunday night stage. A 45-10 loss at Kansas City was the second-most-lopsided during Lewis' 16 seasons in Cincinnati, surpassed only by a game in which they rested starters to get ready for the playoffs.There was a lot at stake in this one: national recognition and first place in the AFC North. The game was flexed from an afternoon slot to Sunday night so fans nationwide could see a pair of up-and-coming teams in an offensive showdown.Instead, the Bengals (4-3) were dominated in every respect as millions watched."That's when your pride gets affected," receiver Tyler Boyd said Monday. "That hurts more than anything."For the first time this season, the Bengals are looking up in the standings. Pittsburgh (3-2-1) leads the division by percentage points. Much of the Bengals' momentum from a 4-1 start has been wasted by another last-second home loss to the Steelers and a blowout at Kansas City in consecutive weeks.Cincinnati has lost nine straight on Sunday night, when it's 3-16 overall. The Bengals' last such win was over the Dolphins in 2004. They're 6-15 in prime-time games since 2011 Jordan Evans Jersey , when Andy Dalton and A.J. Green arrived — 0-6 on Sunday night, 2-5 on Monday night, 4-3 on Thursday night and 0-1 on Saturday night.Back on the big stage, they missed tackles , botched coverages, missed blocks, messed up a fake punt and had an interception returned for a touchdown . They struggled to get even the simple things done right."This one's going to be hard to swallow just because it was in front of everyone," safety Jessie Bates said. "Everyone was watching."The Bengals are trying to escape their history of meltdowns in big games. They haven't won a playoff game since the 1990 season Preston Brown Jersey , the sixth-longest streak of futility in NFL history. Lewis is 0-7 in the playoffs, the worst mark for a head coach.They had a chance to end that Sunday night streak. Instead, they gave viewers reason to tune out early in the third quarter.For one night, it was a Bengals rerun."It's a bad look for the whole team to see this happen," linebacker Preston Brown said. "It's such a big score difference. You never want to go out there and get blown out on a Sunday night, (especially) when it's been something we've been waiting to show the whole league what we can do."It was their sixth loss of at least 30 points during Lewis' 16-year tenure. Their worst loss over that time was a 37-0 defeat against the Jets in 2009, when they rested regulars for the final regular-season game knowing they'd play the Jets again in the playoffs the following week. They lost that one, too.They lost 37-3 at Kansas City in the final game of the 2005 season Ryan Glasgow Jersey , when they had wrapped up the division title and were getting ready to play the Steelers in the first round.The Bengals lost 35-3 at Indianapolis in 2008. They've had a pair of 31-point losses: 44-13 at Baltimore in the 2012 season opener and 34-3 against Baltimore in 2008.They host Tampa Bay (3-3) on Sunday before heading into their bye week. Four of their next five games are at home. The Bengals somehow thought re-signing Bobby Hart on a three-year contract was a good idea, and Twitter let them have it."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections #BITESIZEFilm RoomRoster Transactions and ContractsOrange & Black InsiderSalary Cap And CBABreaking NewsKeep track of the 2019 Bengals draft脳NFL Free AgencyBengals Free Agency 2019Twitter reactions to Bengals re-signing Bobby HartNew,115commentsThe Bengals somehow thought re-signing Bobby Hart on a three-year contract was a good idea, and Twitter let them have it.EDTShareTweetShareShareTwitter reactions to Bengals re-signing Bobby HartAaron Doster-USA TODAY SportsThe Bengals have re-signed right tackle Bobby Hart to a three-year $21 million contract. You read that right: $21 million for three years.Hart was a very weak link last year on the offensive line, and it was abundantly clear most of the snaps he played. At times it didn’t even look like he belonged on the field, and he was a major liability more often than not, whether it was his poor play or dumb penalties.However, Cincinnati has opted to commit to Hart for what appears to be the long term. While we still don’t know the full details Jordan Evans Jersey , it looks like Hart is the right tackle for the foreseeable future. Needless to say, Twitter had a field day:Then there was the matter of people tying in what new Bengals offensive line coach had said about Hart earlier this offseason, which really added to the fire.This pretty much sums it up though... [NSFW]What is your reaction to this very questionable signing?
