The second quarter was another case of the Bengals dealing with adversity by putting up 7 points and only giving up 3 to Chicago. Andy Dalton was 5/5 on the scoring-drive connecting with 4 different receivers. At Chicago’s 45 yard line, Andy Dalton had a beautiful pump fake, and deep pass down the right side to an open Green for the touchdown. The Bengals defense, again played great holding the Bears to only 3 points and forcing them to punt several times. Dalton was sharp again on the drive and ended the first half with 76% completion.

The third quarter was another exciting one. The Bengals started off where they let off, with a 12 play 80 yard drive for another 7 points. The Bears with still, no answer for Aj Green as Dalton threw a deep pass down the right side was incomplete, but Pass Interference on Tillman. That would put the Bengals is great shape for BJGE to use the ‘truck stick’ and pound it in the end zone for the Touchdown. Dalton was on point again with all of his passes and executing running plays perfect.

The Bengals were using misdirection runs a lot that was opening up the passing game and allowing Dalton to pass to several receivers. I really liked the fact of the Bengals attacking adversity by not letting it bother them, and still executing 110%.

    I Don’t know how they can win consistently with a bad coach and a medeocre QB. Thet might win in spite of their defiencies. Why would Lewis call the last time out with 8 minutes to go?

    Dalton was not mediocre – he is the only one who had his head in the game. The first interception was a timing play where AJ lost position he was supposed to establish on Tillman. The second INT was in AJ’s hands. Neither were Dalton’s fault. As for the rest of the team this was the most depressed I have been in years concerning the bengals because I actually thought they may have a chance this year. But the secondary was exposed time and time again on third down – Kirkpatrick is proving to be a wasted first round pick because he is just so dumb he gives up huge penalty yards time and again for no reason (I keep thinking how much I wanted them to packege his pick to get Luke Keechley), Peerman costs us some 60 yards on a stupid play. Maualuga ends the game on moronic play. The offense was too cute by half with trick plays. Sanu has zero situational awareness as he doesn’t secure the ball on a key 3rd down against the #1 team in takeaways last year. They used all there timeouts on nothing but disorganization. Bonehead teams do not win anything and this is truly a boneheaded team.
