Huber, an alum of Archbishop McNicholas High School and the University of Cincinnati, holds the all-time record for games played in a Bengals uniform, finishing his career having suited up in 216 games over his 14-year career.

For his career, Huber punted a total of 45,766 yards, the 20th most in NFL history, averaging 45.3 yards per punt. In 2014, he was named to the Pro Bowl.

He announced his retirement this past July.

Drafted as a tight end by the Green Bay Packers in the 2007 Draft, Harris spent 14 of his 15 NFL seasons in Cincinnati, playing in 202 games for the Bengals. The lone season not spent along the Banks of the Ohio River came in his rookie year in 2008, where he played for the Houston Texans.

The “Ruler of the Jungle” was started in 2021, where a die-hard Bengals fan or former Bengal serves as king of the day.

They sit on a Bengals jungle-style throne and serve as a game day ruler, of sorts — leading the fans to a signature “Who Dey” chant right before kickoff.

Cincinnati and Buffalo will kickoff from Paycor Stadium at 8:20 p.m. on Sunday Night Football. You can watch the game exclusively on WLWT.
