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%.
