The Cincinnati Bengals took the half time momentum and ran with it to start the third quarter. Dalton led the offense on an 80 yard drive that encompassed 7:08. The most significant of the play was a pass interference call on Charles Tillman against A.J. Green in the end zone. It was on 3rd and thirteen.

The Law Firm then promptly drove up the gut for a touchdown, putting the Bengals up 21-10. Green-Ellis demonstrated the collective energy of the Bengals by spiking the ball following his burst up the middle.

Cutler than responded by driving the Chicago offense down-field on his own 80 yard drive, making key passes along the way before Matt Forte punched it across the goal line. It made the score 21-17, and charged the fans of Soldier Field.

The Bengals ended the quarter punting the ball, and the Bears will have a chance to repeat a long drive.
