Quick, how many NFL punters can you name? There's the guy who punts for your favorite football team, the guy who used to punt for your favorite football team, and. . . well, that's probably it. But Kevin Huber might change that after what he did in a Sunday pre-season game.
When blocking broke down on a punt attempt late in the third quarter, the Cincinnati Bengals punter had to act quickly with a swarm of Washington Redskins heading his way. And he did, with this nifty behind-the-back move to avoid a blocked punt:
Go, Kevin, go! NFL punters don't make highlight-reel plays very often, but this certainly qualifies. Unfortunately, Huber's move only worked momentarily.
While Huber took off with the football -- undoubtedly, hearing the song "One Moment In Time" in his head -- his glory was short-lived. What that GIF doesn't show is he was thrown to the ground by the next defender he came across in a play that officially went down as an eight-yard loss. Here's the full clip:
The Redskins took over on the Cincinnati 27-yard line and scored what turned out to be the winning touchdown four plays later. But whatever, it was just a pre-season game. More importantly, the world has a
new first favorite punter. Save some of that magic for the regular season, Kevin.
