With 6 minutes and 53 seconds left in the Bengals Steelers game, Pittsburgh ran the best fake punt we’ve seen.
It was 4th down with 7 yards to go when the long snapper sent the ball directly to Steelers player Golden, who then lobbed a beautiful pass to a streaking Darrius Heyward-Bey for a 44 yard completion.
“You definitely want to put it out there a little bit and let him go get it,” Golden said. “We’ve been practicing it for the last three or four years. We were able to connect on it tonight, that’s all that matters.”
Golden says they spotted a tendency on the Bengals side and took advantage of it.
Bravo Pittsburgh, bravo
