The Cincinnati Bengals shot out of the gates against the Seahawks on their first drive, but other big plays didn't occur until the end of the game. During the frenzied comeback, big plays came from all three phases, offense, defense and special teams to assist the club in getting to 5-0. Take a look at our top play nominees and cast your vote!

Tyler Eifert's 25-Yard Catch In Fourth Quarter:

The Bengals were putting together a huge comeback against a tough Seattle team, but were down three points as time was winding down. Then, Andy Dalton hit Tyler Eifert for a spectacular 25-yard play to help get the team into field goal position to tie the game. Mike Nugent nailed the field goal to send the game into overtime.

Adam Jones' Late Punt Return:

Things looked bleak toward the end of the third quarter and beginning of the fourth. Cincinnati was down 24-7 and needed points quickly. Jones was put in the backfield to field a punt and he didn't disappoint. The big return spurred a second touchdown to Eifert and helped to cut Seattle's lead to 24-14.


Andy Dalton's Fourth Quarter Rushing Touchdown:

Cincinnati was making a game of it late in the fourth quarter and were attempting to really cut into the Seahawks' lead late. Dalton initially lined up in the shotgun, but saw something change in Seattle's defensive formation. He called an audible and sprang into the end zone to bring the game within three points with a five yard touchdown.


Mike Nugent's Game-Winning Field Goal In Overtime:

After nailing a big kick to send the game into overtime, Nugent lined up for a big one for the win. It was a nerve wracking moment for a guy who had missed a couple of kicks on the year, but in truly dramatic fashion, Nugent clanked one off the left upright and banked it in for the win.
