9. 2015 Topps #99 Vontaze Burfict

January 9th, 2016. The Bengals melt down at home verses the Steelers. Trailing 15-0 entering the fourth quarter, the Bengals came back in the fourth quarter. A touchdown run by Jeremy Hill, a field goal by Mike Nugent, and a touchdown catch by A.J. Green put the Bengals up 16-15 with 1:50 left in the game. Vontaze Burfict intercepted backup quarterback Landry Jones with 1:43 left to play. With a lead and the ball, all the Bengals had to do was run the clock out. But a Jeremy Hill fumble gave the Steelers hope. With 22 seconds left in the game, Vontaze Burfict committed an unnecessary roughness penalty on Antonio Brown putting the Steelers in striking distance. On the next play, Adam Jones committed an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that set up a Chris Boswell field goal to win the game. This was the Bengals fifth straight loss in the first round of the playoffs.

10. 2014-15 Upper Deck NCAA March Madness - Bracketology #NNO Cincinnati Bearcats

March 18th, 2018. The Bearcats blow a twenty-two point lead with ten minutes remaining in the game and loose by two. The Bearcats lead by twelve at halftime and had as much as a twenty two point lead, and watched it dwindle away in the final seconds to Nevada. Thought by many to be Mick Cronin's best Bearcat's team, Cincinnati failed to reach the sweet sixteen despite being ranked as a two seed in the tournament.

That's rough.  The Cueto wild card game was hard to watch.  At least the Reds have a cool stadium!

On the plus side, you don't have the train wreck that is the Kings in your city anymore.
