Bengals at Redskins, Week 3
First quarter, 14:53 left to go
Bengals ball, 1st and 10 from their 27
After a solid kickoff return from Brandon Tate, the Bengals opened up in the wildcat formation with receiver Mohammed Sanu fielding the snap.
Redskins safety DeJon Gomes gets caught looking on the run action, opening up the entire middle of the field for A.J. Green to run free. Sanu winds up and throws an excellent pass, adding six points to the scoreboard.
The Stat: +.18 WPA for Cincinnati
This play really ended up setting the tone for the entire game, which ended 38-31 in favor of Cincy. At one point Washington had the advantage in terms of Win Probability, but the Bengals scored on their next two drives and put the game out of reach.
The Bengals won't be able to have this sort of success with their wildcat pass again, but getting out ahead of Robert Griffin III and a dangerous offense was worth its use.
