The Cincinnati Bengals watched the Divisional Round from home after a contentious loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers the week before. The game between the two division rivals was a heated affair ultimately decided by two personal foul penalties by the Bengals that set up a 35-yard game-winning field goal for Pittsburgh with just 14 seconds left to go.
Evidently, the Bengals haven't gotten over it yet.
So of course when the Steelers fell to the Denver Broncos 23-16 in the Divisional Round on Sunday, the Bengals let everyone know how happy they were.

And just like that, all is right in the world again

The two players whose penalties ultimately cost Cincinnati the game, Vontaze Burfict and Adam Jones, did not immediately react to Pittsburgh's loss, though Burfict did retweet the Rey Maualuga's tweet.
It looks like this is a rivalry that's not going away any time soon.
