Backup Green Bay Packers quarterback Graham Harrell failed to fully secure the first-down handoff to John Kuhn with 5:01 remaining in the third quarter. As a result Bengals players eyes widened with excitement while the prompt defensive end Micah Johnson dives on the fumbled football for the recovery. Cincinnati's offense struts their step onto the field at Green Bay's 15-yard line.
Unlike their first-team counterparts, Cincinnati didn't bother waiting for a potential scoring drive to stall. In fact they went directly to Marvin Jones, who has developed a knack for making special plays this preseason. Gradkowski takes the snap and targets Jones' back shoulder near the front left pylon, giving the rookie his first touchdown of the preseason to go along with multiple 40-yard receptions against the Jets and Falcons respectively.
