Cleveland hurls David Njoku into the end zone

Sometimes you need a bit of help from your friends to get where you’re going to go.

Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku appeared to get stuffed on his attempt to get into the end zone against Cincinnati, but that’s when his teammates took over and basically willed him into the end zone.

Check out that video again. Njoku tried to leap in the air, got caught in midair like a high school production of “Dirty Dancing,” bobbled around a bit like he was crowd-surfing, and then got basically hurled into the end zone by some combination of Browns and Bengals.

Njoku’s score put Cleveland up three touchdowns over Cincinnati — no, that’s not a typo — and is an instant nominee for Touchdown of the Year.
