Cincinnati Bengals Coach Zac Taylor Hits Up A Local Bar To Hand Out Game Ball After Playoff Win

Zac Taylor Bengals coach

One of the most mind-boggling stats that I’ve heard in awhile, is that the Cincinnati Bengals haven’t won a playoff game in 31 years…

Until last night.

The likes of Joe Burrow, Joe Mixon, Ja’Marr Chase, and Tee Higgins have restored hope in Cincy, as they finally broke the curse last night against the Las Vegas Raiders by a score of 26-19. Sure, they got a little help from the refs, but that’s another story…

That being said, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor did a classy move following the win.

For a night, Taylor was one of the “blue-collar” Cincy boys, as him and punter Kevin Huber made a random appearance at a local bar to celebrate the win…

Not to mention, he handed out a game ball to one lucky random Bengals fan.

On top of that, he sent out several of his players to give away game balls to random lucky fans, like tight end C.J. Uzomah.

Needless to say, it’s hard to find a coach who’s more deserving than Taylor.

The man is in his third year at Cincy, and is coming off a tough 2020 campaign, where the team went 4-11-1, and saw their franchise QB tear both his ACL and MCL in his rookie season.

You gotta love a franchise who believes in their coach, and seeing him reap the benefits of his hard work.

He said in an interview with ESPN following the game:

“Personally, if I coached at any other organization in football, I probably wouldn’t be here right now in my third year.”

Much deserved sir.

The Bengals will either play the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round, or if the Steelers upset the Kansas City Chiefs, could face off against the Buffalo Bills.
