Sloppy offense has Bengals trailing Browns 7-3 at halftime

 

The Bengals entered today’s game with a depleted defense with Leon Hall and 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.

They’ve had a number of opportunities, highlighted be a 4th-and-1 at the CLE-5 hat was stopped short after BenJarvus Green Ellis stumbled as he was taking the hand-off.

Andy Dalton also missed a deep-strike to A.J. Green after he’d beaten cornerback Buster Skrine deep for what would have been a go-ahead score, but overshot him and they trail 7-3 at the half.

Thanks to a pair of missed field goals by Browns kicker Billy Cundiff, the Bengals trail by just four points, and will have the ball to start thew second-half.
