On Thursday night’s preseason game the Cincinnati Bengals playing against the New England Patriots, fans wearing tom brady jersey had to enviously watch Bengals fans cheering for Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco kicking an extra point.
“The most interesting footballer in the world” thus added another wrinkle to his colorful career as all-time leader in catches, yards receiving and name changing. Ochocinco booted an extra point late in the first half and led the Bengals to a 7-6 win over the Patriots. He also kicked off to start the second half. He really did well in the job which was supposed to be done by Shayne Graham, who was held out as a precaution because of a groin injury. Graham was watching the game in his bengals jersey on Thursday night.
Ochocinco, whose former name was Chad Johnson, never kicked in preseason or regular-season games, but used to kick in practices. He managed to kick the extra point after J.T. O’Sullivan had the only 24-yard touchdown pass to Chris Henry.
