Sunday’s win over the Green Bay Packers was one to remember, but it was even more special if you had the pleasure of listening to Bengals radio announcers Dan Hoard and Dave Lapham calling the game as the Bengals made a furious second-half rally after being down by as many as 16 points and looking dead in the water.
The play that ultimately gave the Bengals a 34-30 lead and the win was the fumble-return touchdown cornerback Terence Newman scored late in the fourth-quarter, and the excitement and joy that any Bengals fan with a pulse was feeling can best be summed-up by the sound of the radio call by Hoard and Lapham as it occurred:
The call made this moment that much more special, and one that everyone in Bengaldom won’t soon forget. But this was in just Week 3 of this season, so hopefully, there will be more like it this year.
