After the Miami Dolphins established a 7-6 lead following a 63-yard drive that spanned nine plays, Andy Dalton eases the first down pass to A.J. Green near the right sidelines, where he scampers and then fights through a Cameron Wake tackle. However during the process A.J. Green lost the football, which Miami recovered at Cincinnati's 38-yard line with under seven minutes remaining in the second quarter. After an official review, which showed Green recovering while his knee was down and officially tackled, the Bengals keep possession.
That was close.
Yet the Cincinnati Bengals were unable to capitalized from the sighed relief. Andy Dalton was sacked on first down, once again putting the possession behind schedule. A jet sweep to Andrew Hawkins on second and 13 picked up a modest five yards, setting up third down when the Bengals called a timeout.
On third and eight, Armon Binns is forced to slide to haul in the low pass, quickly standing and trying to generate a first down. Unfortunately the second-effort wasn't rewarded when the football was knocked out of Binn's possession by linebacker Koa Misi, which the Dolphins recovered at midfield.
The Cincinnati Bengals forced a four and out, following a stuffed tackle by the Bengals defensive line on Jorvorskie Lane.
