Cincinnati Bengals v Arizona Cardinals
1st quarter

Without Green, I'm expecting a diet of Gio. At least 120 yards rushing for Gio to get the win….. At least my thoughts to start the game.

Sanu impress me virtually every week, he pulls something off every week that makes say "Wow!!! How'd he do that?"

Bengals score on opening drive, Gio stopped on two plays at the goal line. Here's my question. Why no Jeremy Hill in that situation?

2nd quarter
Defense is holding strong but not having Malauaga in the middle is hurting the Bengals. Flacco is living in the middle of the field with slants routes.

This quarter has been extremely boring. On the bright side, a referee did you the word erroneously to describe an inadvertent whistle! History being made!

3rd quarter
INT by Lamur set the tone for Sanu on a very productive reverse

Defense continues to carry this team. Great plays by Lamur and Jones, gives the Bengals 10 points on turnovers at this point.

4th quarter
Offense laying a big ole fat one. Two straight turnovers.

Defense shows up with two big stops in the 4th, keeps the game within four as the Bengals trail.

Receivers playing a big role today, even after the injuries. Hello Greg Little! Welcome to Cincinnati.

Andy Dalton with the QB sneak gives the Bengals the lead with 00:57 left in the 4th. First career multiple rushing TDs for Dalton.

Final Thoughts
A win is a win, regardless how ugly it was. Found out after the game, it was Andy Dalton who called the QB sneak in the closing moments. Gutsy call by the offensive leader but someone needed to make it. Say what you want about Dalton but this offense is his and he was the primary reason it clicked. Mohammed Sanu, Gio Bernard, Jeremy Hill, and Greg Little played big roles, but Dalton was the reason this offense performed. Can't deny the toughness of the defense, when they needed to make a play or have big stands, they did. Big team win by the Bengals, as they now sit atop the AFC North.

Strong showing against #1 Miss St, brings the Cats some respect. What is notable from this defeat is the attention Patrick Towles will recieve after out dueling a Hesiman hopeful.

No shortage of offense in this one! Bryan Station put up the points, but it was a late surge by Henry Clay making the difference giving us a classic at Dr. Robert J. Bell Heber Stadium.
