Andy Dalton just became the first quarterback since Tyler Thigpen in 2008 to score a receiving touchdown in a regular season game. And it was incredible.

The Saint Louis Rams are currently down to their third string quarterback and Tony Romo is throwing picks like Santa gives out presents for the Dallas Cowboys. Meanwhile, over in Cincinnati, the Bengals have so much confidence that they are sending their quarterback out on trick plays receiving passes from a wide receiver.

Yep you read that right, it wasn't even a backup quarterback that threw the touchdown. Instead offensive coordinator Hue Jackson gave the ball to Mohamed Sanu, a high school QB, to launch a pass for the second game in a row.

Sanu is now 4-4 passing in his career for 166 yards with two touchdowns to boot. He holds a QB Rating that is one of the best in the history of the National Football League at 158.3.

Here's the 18 yard completion to the house in all it's glory....

There are two other quarterback's to score a receiving TD in the NFL in the past two decades. Those were by Drew Brees in 2003 and Brad Johnson in 1997.

'The Red Rifle' Dalton is definitely starting to payback some of the $115 million dollars he was given in the off-season.
