WR Ochocinco Kicks Extra Point

By  | 

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Chad Ochocinco has added another
wrinkle to his colorful career by kicking an extra point.

Cincinnati's all-time leader in catches and yards receiving connected after the Bengals first-half touchdown as coach Marvin Lewis held out Shayne Graham as a precaution because of a groin injury. Ochocinco also kicked off to start the second half Thursday night.

Graham, fourth in NFL history in field goal accuracy, signed a one-year contract for this season after being named the Bengals franchise player.

Ochocinco had never attempted a kick in exhibition or regular-season games during his eight NFL seasons, the first seven under the name Chad Johnson. But he has kicked in practices.
