The Cincinnati Bengals entered today’s game with a depleted defense with cornerback Leon Hall and free safety Reggie Nelson out with injures, but nevertheless, they’re once again doing their best to carry the team, but the offense is struggling once again to put points on the board, due in large part to the poor play of  Andy Dalton.

Dalton struggles throughout the game, and could never get on the same page as All-Pro wide receiver A.J. Green. At one point, he missed a deep-strike to Green after he’d beaten cornerback Buster Skrine for what would have been a go-ahead score, but overshot him and they trailed 7-3 at the half.

It wasn’tg all on Dalton, as the Bengals had what looked like an easy conversion with a 4th-and-1 at the CLE-5 trailing 7-3, but they were stopped short after BenJarvus Green Ellis stumbled as he was taking the hand-off.
