Bengals Punter Pulls a Sweet Move to Avoid a Backfield Takedown (Video)
I’m not really sure what a punting highlight actually looks like. Do you?
You will after seeing this clip of Bengals punter Kevin Huber gettin’ crafty with the ball to avoid a rushing defender in last night’s matchup against the Redskins. As Zach Pascal barreled his way, Huber pulled the ball behind his back to prevent a blocked kick or strip.

The headline is a little misleading. Though he avoided THAT player, he still got hit with a tackle resulting in an eight-yard-loss on fourth down.
It turns out that even the most exciting punting highlights are still bittersweet.
