WATCH: Fans give Bengals hero’s welcome on return to Cincinnati
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Faithful Bengals fans gathered outside Paul Brown Stadium the Monday after the Super Bowl to welcome the AFC Champion Cincinnati Bengals home from Los Angeles.
The team arrived at the stadium sometime shortly after 7 p.m., by which time fans had gathered in the hundreds if not thousands.
The team got into CVG around 6:45 p.m., a few hours shy of one full day since losing to the Rams in heartbreaking fashion.
But the spirits of the team and fan base appear to have rallied after a despairing Sunday night. Many players say they believe this is just the start of a years-long run in Cincinnati.
“We’re a young team, so, you know, you’d like to think that we’ll be back in this situation multiple times over the course of the next few years,” said Quarterback Joe Burrow.
