Following 31-yard kickoff return to the Bengals 27-yard line, the Cincinnati Bengals offense takes the field. And trickery was the call for the first play of the game. Mohamed Sanu takes the shotgun snap, fakes the handoff and launches the football down the middle of the field.

A.J. Green, beating safety DeJon Gomes and cornerback DeAngelo Hall, snags the perfectly thrown football on his vertical route, completing the 73-yard touchdown pass. I can't believe that just happened.

The Cincinnati Bengals have taken a 7-0 lead on the first play from scrimmage.
