The Last Time The Bengals Scored A Touchdown…

The world was a very different place.

January 1st.


3:45 pm.

265 days ago.

That was the last time the Cincinnati Bengals scored a touchdown.

(If you even think about mentioning preseason to me, I will gouge your eyes out with a Fun Dip ‘Lik-A-Stik’)

That touchdown was scored by Rex Burkhead (now with the Patriots) running into the end-zone from 5 yards out. He finished with 119 yards on the ground and 2 scores.

The Bengals beat the Ravens on that fateful day, 27-10. Finishing their season at an impressively abysmal 6-9-1, securely in third place in the AFC North above the 1-15 Browns. (Source)

We know.

Feels like decades ago, doesn’t it?

Yes, technically that was still this year – but let it end on Sunday.
