The Bengals are going to the Super Bowl — and finally facing a team not named the San Francisco 49ers! While fans at Arrowhead got to watch Evan McPherson's game-winning kick in person, many fans gathered at Tri-State restaurants and houses for watch parties.
Here are just some of our favorite fan reactions to the final play of the game:
1. The Banks: It was cold in Cincinnati, but that didn't stop hundreds of people from watching the game outside at The Banks. As McPherson's kick crosses the goal posts, fans go crazy while "Welcome to the Jungle" plays.
2. Baby Bengals: We may be a liiiiittle biased, but try to tell us this video of reporter Larry Seward's son celebrating the win doesn't make you smile! "NoooOOOBODY!"
"Hear them Bengals growling..." Sara Elizabeth shared this video of one young fan singing the team to victory!
3. The "I can't look"-ers: At this watch party, shared by Stephanie Layton, two fans decided not to watch McPherson's final kick. "I might hyperventilate," one said.
4. Wings & Rings: Amy Chandler shared this video of fans at Wings & Rings in Liberty Township celebrating the win. As you can imagine, the place gets just a little loud.
