Zac Taylor awards game balls to Bengals fans after playoff win

Bengals coach Zac Taylor delivers game ball to Mt. Lookout Tavern in Cincinnati, 1/15/2022
The Cincinnati Bengals won their first playoff win in 31 years with Saturday night's 26-19 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders

After the game, Bengals head coach Zac Taylor announced a new tradition to honor the city of Cincinnati. Taylor announced that he planned to give a game ball to the city of Cincinnati after every Bengals playoff win going forward as of Saturday night. He also planned to pass game balls out at Cincinnati bars (with a few select players) to pay tribute to the fans who have supported the Bengals throughout their playoff drought. Later that evening, video was captured of Taylor bringing a game ball to Mount Lookout Tavern (a.k.a. MLT) with punter Kevin Huber, who was born in Cincinnati and also played for Cincinnati in college. Taylor promised that Saturday's playoff win was "the first of many playoff games we win here." According to WCPO, Taylor also brought game balls to Pontiac and Walt's Hitching Post. 

Looks like it was a fun night. Regardless of what happens from here on out for the Bengals, their future is looking bright.
