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)
