Not only is a tie one of the most unlikely of outcomes in professional football – this season fans traveled all the way to other side of the Atlantic to see it happen, when the Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals ended their game knotted at 27-27.
A tie game has only happened 22 times since sudden death was implemented in 1974 (twice in two weeks this season). And both teams did everything they could to try and come away with a victory. Washington’s quarterback Kirk Collins led an aerial assault, throwing for 458 yards and receiver Jae Crowder brought in 9 receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown. The Bengals wide receiver, A.J. Green, would not be outdone, however, bringing in 9 receptions for 121 yards and a Bengals touchdown of his own.
The On Location Guests who attended the historic game would have been had enough to talk about with the stellar performances that happened on the field. But, beyond the game, they were treated to a wonderful weekend in London as well. We explored the Thames on a boat tour aboard the Silver Barracuda – an extraordinary ship that has ferried Prime Ministers, film and pop stars, and royalty.
It was our last weekend in London but we’re sure 2017 will hold more great games, weekends, and surprises. Join us in 2017.
