WATCH: David Njoku scores TD after leap falls woefully short

Nobody will ever call this touchdown from Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku particularly pretty. But it sure was entertaining to watch.

Njoku took a screen pass from Baker Mayfield and tried to hurdle into the end zone…from the five-yard-line. Naturally, he came up well short. But while the Cincinnati Bengals did stop Njoku’s leap, they couldn’t bring him down. He eventually crashed into the end zone.

Solid assist points must be given to the Cleveland offense for pushing him into the end zone.

The touchdown put the Browns up 21-0 on their cross-state rivals. It was Cleveland’s third touchdown in as many possessions.
