WATCH: Former Illini DB Clayton Fejedelem ices Bengals' win with huge fumble return TD
Clayton Fejedelem came through in a big way for the Cincinnati Bengals!
The former Illinois DB and seventh round pick of the Bengals provided a clutch highlight Sunday. Cincinnati was clinging to a four-point lead late in the game with the Indianapolis Colts driving for a chance to take the lead. It looked like the Colts may do just that before this play.
Fejedelem teamed up with another Bengals defender to dislodge the ball from a Colts receiver. The play was ruled a catch on the field, and Fejedelem quickly scooped up the ball and headed the other way. He blew past most of the Colts’ offense and even broke a tackle from QB Andrew Luck on his way to a touchdown that went for more than 80 yards.
The clutch play secured the season-opening win for the Bengals. Cincinnati shared the video of Fejedelem’s play:
TAKE IT HOME, FEJEDELEM!
