Bengals TE Tyler Eifert sits on Santa’s lap, makes wish for playoff success

Somewhere at a shopping mall in America on Tuesday night, Cincinnati Bengals’ 6-foot-6, 250-pound tight end Tyler Eifert sat on a mall Santa’s lap and made a simple wish.

Actually he wished for a whole lot — a Super Bowl ring — obviously a tall order in Cincy considering the Bengals (10-2) have made one-and-done exits in the playoffs in four consecutive seasons and counting. Check out Eifert looking like a regular dude with boyish wonder atop Santa:

Currently the NFL’s league leader in touchdowns with 12, Eifert may be stuck on that number for a week or more after missing Week 13 with a neck injury.
