Following a poorly thrown interception, picked off by Terence Newman at Denver's 27-yard line, the Bengals offense puts the finishing touches on the third quarter with a six-yard run by BenJarvus Green-Ellis. On second and four, Dalton quickly hits A.J. Green on a hitch and sprints across the field near the left sidelines, cutting upfield and knocked out of bounds at the two-yard line.
With 14:24 remaining in the fourth quarter, Dalton overthrows the football on a fade to Mohamed Sanu. So the Bengals called BenJarvus Green-Ellis, doing exactly what he was signed to do. Second and goal, BenJarvus Green-Ellis powers into the line of scrimmage and the pile of bodies is pushed into the end zone.
The Bengals take a 20-17 lead with 14:10 remaining in the game.
