Finally, a playoff win for the city of Cincinnati to celebrate!
This playoff drought coincided with Mike Brown’s ownership of the Bengals, as he took the reins in 1991 following the passing of legendary coach and owner Paul Brown.
So of course, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor made sure to honor Mike and the city of Cincinnati with game balls following the memorable win.
“This means the world to him,” Taylor said of Brown. “We owe so much to that man for being patient with us. If I coached in any organization in football, I probably wouldn’t be here.”
”We want to start new traditions with playoff wins where we give game balls to the city and let fans enjoy it,” Taylor said of the game ball that went to the Queen City.
Bengals fans love seeing and hearing it!
