Playing in the NFL is the dream of so many people that when it happens, it can be somewhat intimidating and unnerving.

For one young man, Thursday's match between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Kansas City Chiefs was a bit to much for him to digest.

Bengals fourth string Quarterback Matt Scott took to the field for a rare appearance in the teams first pre-season outing and created a memorable moment.

With :57 remaining in the game and on 3rd & 1, Scott was in charge of possibly the Bengals last chance to cut into Kansas City's 10-point lead.

Before the ball was snapped however, Scott showed his on-field guts - literally as he vomited apparently twice before taking the snap.

Shown here in a six-second vine, Scott clearly hurls on the field but quite heroically doesn't let it interfere with the game as he takes up his spot in the shotgun position.

Even more incredibly he went on to throw a touchdown from that very play as he hit Connor Vernon for the 12-yard touchdown.

A big night for Scott

The Bengals game with Kansas City was the first action that Scott had ever seen for Cincinnati and he had an eventful game.

Despite inspiring a late surge by the Bengals, he couldn''t prevent his team crashing to a two point loss in week one of pre-season.

It all started at the beginning of the fourth quarter when Scott made a pass to James Wright for what looked like a nine yard touchdown but was ruled as an incomplete pass.

After a challenge, the call was overturned and Scott had his first ever Cincinnati touchdown to bring them within three of their opposition.

His last minute touchdown wasn't enough to bring them back though as they crashed to a defeat and now stand at 0-1 in pre-season.
