On the next Denver possession, it was Ronnie Hillman finding pay dirt again as he completed another solid drive by the Bronco offense. This would push the lead to 14-3 over Cincinnati.
Things would get really ugly for the Bengals on their next possession as a Von Miller sack left them on their own goal line.
On the next play, BenJarvus Green-Ellis got the call as Cincinnati tried to give themselves a little bit of room to work with. But unfortunately Green-Ellis lost the football and it was recovered by D.R. Cromartie who took it in for six. This gave Denver a commanding 21-3 first-half lead.
