Bengals Rookie Mohamed Sanu's First Touchdown Receives Recognition

Andy Lyons

Bengals rookie Mohamed Sanu is quickly making a case for Bengals rookie of the year among a tremendously productive class, scoring four touchdowns in three games.

Though A.J. Green didn't extend his streak scoring a touchdown to ten games against the Raiders, rookie wide receiver Mohamed Sanu scored a touchdown in his third consecutive game, giving him four on the season after a two-score performance against Oakland.

It was a fade route near the left sidelines and quarterback Andy Dalton threw the football up as if he were throwing it to Green -- trusting the receiver to make the best play. With so many players focused on Green, it left Sanu with single-coverage. As he approached the sidelines five yards deep into the endzone, Sanu flipped out his left hand for the one-handed catch, easily keeping both feet in-bounds.

The reception earned Sanu recognition as one of the top-five receptions in the NFL according to NFL.com. Check out the video here.
