The Bengals Pulled Off An Awesome, Old-School Wide Receiver Pass

Against the Redskins, Cincinnati receiver Mohamed Sanu threw a 73-yard touchdown to fellow wideout A.J. Green on the first play of the game.

1. Fox provided this handy, helpful graphic. At the beginning of the play, QB Andy Dalton lined up wide, and receiver Mohamed Sanu started in the backfield.

2. Sanu takes the direct snap and fakes a handoff.

3. Then he launches a hell of a pass, the ball traveling nearly 50 yards in the air. There are pro QBs that can’t make that throw.

4. And A.J. Green trots into the end zone. That’s how you start a game.
