WATCH: Former Badgers WR Alex Erickson houses electrifying 75-yard punt return
Now this is how you make a play!
Former Badgers WR Alex Erickson had a nice career while at Wisconsin. He finished with over 1,800 yards receiving and did solid work as a punt returner. However, this might be his best return ever.
Erickson drifted back to field the punt while waiting on his blockers to set up. Once he fielded the ball, he cut outside and upfield. His blocking gave him a nice crease, and he showed off some shifty moves in taking the return 75 yards for the score.
Needless to say, this is probably the play of the game for the Bengals:
.@ericksona86 is GONE!
A 7️⃣5️⃣ yd return for the TOUCHDOWN!
