Bengals vs Lions: Recapping a half full of headlines


 

Between the A.J. Green touchdown, the Jermaine Gresham locker room controversy and the Leon Hall injury, it was a first-half of football that won’t soon be forgotten.

All of that led to the Bengals facing a potential 10-point halftime deficit heading into the break with the Lions driving for as score at the end of the half, but after the Bengals forced a fourth-down field goal attempt, Carlos Dunlap blocked the field and goal and the Bengals returned it to the DET-40.

Andy Dalton would hit Marvin Jones for a TD just before the half ended, and the Bengals lead 14-10 at the break.
