Bengals DE Sam Hubbard sets an NFL record with the play vs Ravens in a wild-card matchup

Sam Hubbard made NFL history when he returned a fumble 98 yards for a touchdown, giving his team the Cincinnati Bengals the lead against the Baltimore Ravens in their wild-card matchup. This was the longest fumble return in NFL postseason history and helped the Bengals win 24-17.

The play began when Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley was rolling in the fourth quarter. He had a touchdown pass to Demarcus Robinson to tie the game at 17 and then had a 25-yard run that got the team to within 2 yards of a touchdown. But that didn’t happen, as the ball was poked away from Huntley by linebacker Logan Wilson.

The ball then bounced into the hands of Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard, and he made NFL history with a 98-yard fumble return for a touchdown. During the play, Ravens tight end Mark Andrews made a valiant effort to try and tackle Hubbard, but he was side blocked by Markus Bailey. Fans wondered whether officials missed an illegal block in the back, but the touchdown stood and put the Bengals up 24-17 with about 11:39 to play in the game.

Hubbard finished the game with four tackles and a quarterback hit, while Wilson had ten tackles and the forced fumble that led to the touchdown. It was the longest fumble return in postseason history and helped the Bengals to their win.

The 98-yard fumble return was the longest in postseason history and made Sam Hubbard an NFL legend. It was a momentous play that will be remembered for years to come.
