After a Marshawn Lynch two-yard gain, dropped at the line of scrimmage (but strong enough to pick up two yards after contact), Charlie Whitehurst is forced to dump off the pass to Sidney Rice on a crossing pattern on a throw that forced Rice to dive for the completion. Charlie Whitehurst was sacked by Geno Atkins on third down, forcing the Seattle Seahawks to punt. And Seahawks punting Jon Ryan crushed the football 65 yards to the Bengals 11-yard line. That's what we call, changing field position. Adam Jones had other ideas.

After hauling in the punt, Jones exploded up the middle before shifting towards the left sidelines, returning the punt 63 yards to the Seahawks 35-yard line. Bernard Scott is called for consecutive runs to the left, picking up 12 yards and the first down. On first-and-ten from the Seahawks 14-yard line, Dalton drops back and finds Jerome Simpson on the right with man coverage. The slant pattern put him in a position to box out the defender, hauling in the 14-yard touchdown reception to give the Bengals a 10-0 lead.
