What happened to the Bengals last night against the Steelers was embarrassing. There's no way two easily avoidable fouls should cost you a playoff game. As a result, Marvin Lewis is still winless in the postseason after 12 years as the head coach. The Bengals haven't won a playoff game since 1990.

Lewis should've kept his players under control, so Saturday's loss is partly on him. However, the Bengals are still planning to stick with him as the head coach, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Issue of Marvin Lewis' future really isn't much of an issue. Bengals have no plans to make any HC change at this time, per sources.

Lewis is the second-longest tenured head coach in the NFL. The first is Bill Belichick, who's been with New England for 15 seasons and four Super Bowl victories.
