The Cincinnati Bengals opened up their 2014 NFL preseason with a thriller of a game against the Kansas City Chiefs, a game they would narrowly lose, 41-39. However, of all the action that took place, it may have been Bengals backup quarterback Matt Scott who stole all the attention last in the fourth quarter.
Scott decided to give everyone his best Willie Beamen impression, by throwing up on the field. Yes, he was in the shotgun, ready to get the play off and take the snap, when he just projectile vomited.
But like a good quarterback, he kept his composure, manned up and ran his offense!
Now while this is crazy in itself, what’s even crazier is, just six seconds after this incident took place, Scott fired a 12-yard touchdown strike to Conner Vernon to bring his team a bit closer to the Chiefs, who played an outstanding game tonight.
But still, even with action like De’Anthony Thomas taking a punt back 80 yards in his first NFL game, this will be the moment that most people will remember from this preseason contest.
You do have to admire the composure that Scott showed throughout this, though. Whether it was the heat that got to him, or if he’s really sick, it’s difficult to play through that.
But Scott did, and he did it like a B-O-S-S!
