Following his sixth consecutive first-round playoff loss that tied an NFL record, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was asked if he plans to return for the final year of his contract next season.
“It’s my plan,” Lewis said. “It’s not about me. I’m talking about our football team, wherever our football team is. Obviously every year you create a new football team, and that’s part of it unfortunately. Tomorrow is not promised for anyone. That’s part of life in the NFL and what these guys have in the finality of losing when you lose in the playoffs.”
