Sam Hubbard may have saved the Cincinnati Bengals’ season at the goal line.
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley was rolling in the fourth quarter. He had a touchdown pass to Demarcus Robinson to tie the game at 17 and appeared to be getting ready to give his team the lead after a 25-yard run that got the team to within 2 yards of a touchdown.
However, Logan Wilson and Hubbard had different ideas.
Huntley went over the top of the line of scrimmage to try and get a touchdown but Wilson knocked the ball out of the quarterback’s hands and Hubbard recovered. The defensive lineman ran the ball 98 yards for a touchdown for one of the wildest touchdowns of the 2022-23 postseason so far.
The play lit up social media.
It was the longest fumble return in postseason history.
Hubbard had four tackles and a quarterback hit before he returned the ball for a touchdown. Wilson had nine tackles and a forced fumble as the play was over.
The play put Cincinnati up a touchdown and an extra point with about 11:39 to play in the game.
The Bengals are the defending AFC champions and were looking to get past a tough division rival in the Ravens.
