Brandon Wilson, Bengals Shock Giants With 103 Yard Kickoff Return
CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Bengals Safety Brandon Wilson wrote a little franchise story against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Wilson kicked off a 103-yard touchdown to end the game at 9:50 in the first quarter and set the franchise record for the longest kick-back.
He broke the previous record of 102 yards that Eric Bieniemy had set against the Giants in 1997. Wilson joined Tremain Mack as the only other player in franchise history with two touchdowns with the Bengals.
Wilson also gave one back for a score against the Ravens last season.

The Bengals need all the Special Team Points they can get for the rest of the season. Cincinnati has been without rookie quarterback Joe Burrow for the rest of the year after suffering a knee injury against the Steelers in Week 11.
Brandon Allen, who had spent the year on the training team, started against the Giants.
