It was wild and crazy one in Cincinnati today, but once the rained cleared and sun began to shine, the Bengals were 3-2 and the Patriots were no longer undefeated.
Entering the fourth quarter, coming back from a Tommy Kelly injury timeout, Andy Dalton found AJ Green wide open to get the Bengals to the NE 6-yard line.
A BenJarvus Green-Ellis run would get them to the 1-yard line. But a Peko penalty would push the Bengals back to the six-yard line.
On 3rd down, Dalton would run a QB draw play to get the offense back to the 1/2 yard line. Marvin Lewis elected to go for it and 4th down, and Green Ellis punched it in for the score.
The PAT by Nugent gave the Bengals a 13-3 lead with 9:21 to go in the game.
Patriot receiver Aaron Dobson would get his team down the field quickly, after he caught a short pass but turned it into a huge gain, getting New England all the way down to the Bengal 17-yard line.
Another pass to Amendola got New England to the goal line with four chances to score on 1st and goal.
The Bengals defense again held strong, stopping Blount from punching it in, and then forcing Brady to throw two incomplete passes.
Gostkowski would come out to kick the field goal on 4th down, cutting the Bengal lead to 13-6, with 6:30 to go in the game.
