Play of the day?
Defeat for the Bengals defuses some of the play's wonder, but it remains one of Sunday's best.
So how did Green pull it off?
A rash of pundits wondered if Jay Gruden's offense was so sprinkled with complexity that the last-ditch pass specifically called for Green to be set apart from his mates, waiting for the designed tip to float in his direction.
No dice. The Bengals, according to The Cincinnati Enquirer, don't even practice the Hail Mary.
"I was in the right spot at the right time; we talk about that a lot," Green told the newspaper. "And I was just looking for someone to tap the ball so I could catch it. I stood off to the side and watched. I was thinking about coming back closer to the ball, but I stayed right where I was and the ball found me. It would have been a great play had we won."
It was a fine play either way, but Green speaks truth. Hail Mary shots don't mean much when you've just lost your second straight game in overtime.
