Cincinnati Bengals announcer loses his mind over game-winning score


Sunday’s win over the Green Bay Packers was one to remember for anyone who’s a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals, but it was even more special if you had the pleasure of listening to Dan Hoard and Dave Lapham calling the game as the Bengals made a furious second-half rally after being down by as many as 16 points and looking dead in the water.
