Bengals Tecmo Super Bowl Season — Week 4

5 of 5

It only took about a minute and a half for former Brown Trent Richardson to lead his old team to the Bengal goal line where the Cincinnati defense was forced to try and make a stand.

The Bengals would hold strong on 1st and 3, and 2nd and 1, but Richardson finally broke through on 3rd down to tie the game up late, 28-28. When asked after the game why he was playing for the Browns even though he had been traded to the Colts, Richardson said, “I have me on my fantasy football team. I earn more points when I play for two teams each week.”

Thanks to a sack by Craig Robertson, the Bengals’ final chance at breaking the tie and winning the game in regulation would stall out as they were forced to punt it away on 4th down. This would send Cincinnati into their first overtime game of the 2013 Tecmo Super Bowl season.

The Browns would win the coin toss heading into overtime putting all the pressure on the Bengal defense. The Browns used the flea flicker once again to get the ball to midfield, but that’s when things turned around for Team Who Dey. Trent Richardson — who had been sensational for his old team all day — coughed up the football and the Bengals would recover.

Finding themselves with 1st and goal, Green-Ellis got the call once more and punched it in for the touchdown and another Bengals victory.

It was a huge day in the backfield for both teams as BenJarvus Green-Ellis carried the ball 13 times for 173 yards while Trent Richardson had a career high with 215 yards on nine carries. Here are the rest of the stats courtesy of Tecmo Sports News:

With the win, the Bengals move to 4-0 in the Tecmo Super Bowl season, giving themselves a two-game lead over all the other teams in the division. The cushion is especially nice heading into Week 5 as Cincinnati will welcome Tom Brady and the New England Patriots to Paul Brown Stadium.
