The Cincinnati Bengals are trailing at the half, 16-14, after committing a comedy of errors in the first-half that couldn’t have started better for them.
The first touchdown of the day in the entire NFL was from Cincinnati Bengals rookie running back Giovani Bernard, who took a hand-off from the 3-yard line and plunged into the endzone to hive Cincinnati an early 7-0 lead.
The Packers then turned the ball over on the ensuing kickoff, and BenJarvus Green-Ellis punched it in for the score, and he Bengals took a 14-0 lead before Aaron Rogers hit the field.
On the Packers’ first offensive possession, tight end Jermichael Finley was injured after taking a big hit on his neck, and looks like he may have suffered a concussion.
Finley has 11 catches for 121 yards and two touchdowns already this season. He had six receptions for 65 yards in a Week 2 win over the Washington Redskins, including a 27-yard touchdown reception.After the Bengals got the ball back in their own territory, that’s when the massacre began. The next four Bengals possessions would be three-and-out, interception, fumble, fumble, fumble, and three and out.
After watching the Packers move the football from their own 22-yard line, to the Bengals four-yard line, Carlos Dunlap sacked Rodgers to halt the drive, and hold the Pack to a field-goal, and only trail 16-14 at the half.
The offense has to regain it’s composure as the defense continues to play good-enough for this team to win.
