TMQ Gives Bengals the #1 sweet play of the week!


Recommended Posts

Sweet Play of the Week

Leading by a mere 34-27 in the third quarter, Cincinnati had first-and-10 on its own 36. The Candy Corns ran the flea flicker, the running back starting up the middle and then pitching back to the quarterback. Cleveland defender Robert Griffith came through unblocked and seemed about to flatten Carson Palmer, who rolled right and connected with T. J. Houshmandzadeh for a 20-yard gain; Cincinnati scored a touchdown on the series and was well on the way to a lead that 48 points could not overcome. On a flea flicker, the quarterback is supposed to end up standing by himself in the middle of the backfield; Palmer's ability to turn the play into a roll-out was sweet. A team scores 58 points, it has to come first in Sweet Plays, right? Note: After the clock showed naught but zeros, trauma counselors were called in to reassure Cincinnati fans that it was, in fact, a victory. Many in Cincinnati feared the Bengals could score 58 points and still lose.
