Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd has finally scored a touchdown at Heinz Field.
The Pittsburgh native scored for the first time in his hometown as a member of the Bengals on Sunday during the first quarter. He bounced off three would-be tacklers to score from 17 yards out to put his team up 7-0.
Boyd had spent the week leading up to the AFC North showdown talking about how important the game and locale was to him. It’s a big deal for the team that he showed up big early in the first quarter, too.
The touchdown connection with Joe Burrow came a drive after Boyd was the target on a bad-looking interception. This drive, Boyd caught a big pass to nearly pick up a first down, then found the endzone on third down:
He would not be stopped! Solid homecoming for @boutdat_23!
