Cutting the lead before halftime, the Bengals had a chance to make the score even closer as the third quarter began. But it wasn’t to be as Dalton would throw his first interception of the day, turning the ball over to Manning and company.
With the decent field position and the momentum, it didn’t take Manning long to find Demaryius Thomas for the touchdown pass. This made the score 28-10 in favor of the Broncos.
The offensive woes continued for Cincinnati as they had to punt the ball back to Denver following a quick three-and-out.
