Cincinnati Bengals running back Samaje Perine picked a great time to produce the team’s biggest rushing play of the season.

On the Bengals’ opening drive of the second half against the Houston Texans, Perine broke a couple of tackles and rumbled down the left sideline for a 46-yard touchdown to give the Bengals a 17-10 lead. It was a big response for a Cincinnati team that wasted scoring opportunities in the first half and was tied with the Texans at halftime.

Perine’s carry was not only the longest of his career, but it was Cincinnati’s longest rush of 2020. The previous long was a 39-run by safety Shawn Williams on a fake punt.
