Bengals’ Joseph Ossai Committed Biggest Bonehead Play Of All-Time, Costs Team Trip To Super Bowl

Joseph Ossai


Bengal defensive end Joseph Ossai committed one of the biggest bonehead plays of all time.

In a tied game with 17 seconds to go on 3rd-and-4 near midfield, Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes decided to scramble and run the ball out of bounds.

After Mahomes got the first down and had his foot out of bounds, Ossai delivered a late hit on the Chiefs QB which cost his team a 15-yard-penalty and put the Chiefs in field goal range.

On the very next play, the Chiefs kicked the game-winning field goal to win the AFC championship.

Fans ripped into Ossai after the game.
