The Cincinnati Bengals finally got their first win of the season Sunday against the New York Jets.
Lanham said it all started when he made a joke about camping out on the roof -- but he didn't really plan on carrying it out.
"Basically I said something, and now I gotta eat my words. I didn't bet nobody anything," Lanham said in late November, when the team was 0-11.
The stunt was similar to the 1991 feat of WEBN radio host Dennis "Wildman" Walker, who lived atop a billboard until the Bengals won a game. He spent 61 days there.
The Bengals are now 1-11, and play the Cleveland Browns next Sunday.
