Bengals’ Gio Bernard Emulates Barry Sanders, Evades Multiple Tacklers in Best Touchdown Play of NFL Season (GIF)

Gio Bernard has been one of the NFL’s best rookies this season, and during Thursday night’s game against the Miami Dolphins, the Bengals running back pulled off an amazing touchdown run that reminded us of Lions legend Barry Sanders.

Cincinnati trailed 17-3 at halftime, but they have mounted a brilliant comeback to tie the game at 17-17, with Bernard’s 35-yard score (his second rushing touchdown of the game) being the highlight of the game. In fact, this run may actually be the most impressive touchdown scored in the NFL this season.
