On Oct. 6, 1974, cornerback and return specialist Lemar Parrish had a 90-yard punt return touchdown and 47-yard fumble return touchdown against the Redskins in a 28-17 Bengals victory. This was one of three games where he tallied multiple unconventional scores by kickoff return, blocked field goal, interception and punt return.
