Week 15 Offensive Snap Count Against The Eagles

Breaking down the Cincinnati Bengals snap distribution during the team's 34-13 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.


Cincinnati Bengals Beat The Eagles 34-13

The Cincinnati Bengals keep their postseason chances very much alive, after overcoming a very sloppy first half with a little help from a turnover-prone Eagles team.


Bengals Suddenly Dominate On Green Touchdown

What a difference a half of a quarter makes. The Bengals were reeling coming out of the half and things looked bleak. However, thanks to a couple of turnovers and a tricky onside kick, the Bengals are once again in control. Oh, those tricky Bengals.

After the Bengals took a 27-13 lead on a Josh Brown field goal, the Bengals saw their opponent on thoe ropes and took advantage. After a squib kick that the Bengals recovered the fumble and extended their lead to put the game out of Philadelphia's reach.

After a patchwork drive, Andy Dalton hit A.J. Green on a fade route to put the game further out of reach. Neither Dalton or Green have have a great game, but they've gutted through a tough performance to pull out to a 34-13 lead.


Josh Brown's 32 Yard Field Goal Makes It 27-13

Well, the Bengals certainly turned a corner. Emotions are peaked, the offense is managing their possessions, and the defense is playing with unrelenting focus and drive.

The Eagles began their drive after a crushing turnover from rookie running back Bryce Brown. Foles connected with tight end Clay Harbor for a would-be first down, but Reggie Nelson laid into Harbor and forced a fumble that was recovered by Chris Crocker.

And just like that: The Bengals have yet another opportunity to capitalize on an Eagles turnover.

Unfortunately, the Bengals were unable to reach the end zone. However, the Bengals were able to get three points after Josh Brown nailed a 32 yard field goal.

The Bengals are now leading the Eagles 27-13.


Wallace Gilberry scores a fat-guy TD

After struggling through most of the game, the Bengals have started to pull away from the Eagles as the defense forced a fumble which was recovered for a touchdown.


Dalton Touchdown Run Gives Bengals a 17-13 Lead

The Bengals have finally taken the lead over Philadelphia again. After Leon Hall intercepted Nick Foles, Andy Dalton led the Bengals on an eight play, 40 yard drive. The drive took four minutes and 34 seconds off the clock. Andy Dalton capped off the drive with an eleven yard touchdown run that was not a designed draw.

The Bengals started the drive on the Philadelphia 40 yard line. A Dennis Roland holding penalty put the Bengals at midfield. BenJarvus Green-Ellis then sprang forward with a 16 yard run into Philly territory. Two plays later, Dalton completed a pass to A.J. Green for 11 yards on third and nine. It was a great catch on a high throw by Dalton. After a delay of game, Dalton scrambled into the end zone to give the Bengals the lead. The Bengals lead 17-13 with 20 seconds left in the third quarter.


Bengals Potentially Turn Tide With Leon Hall INT

The Bengals have had a rough night on offense. Since taking an early 10-0 lead, Andy Dalton and his supporting cast have hit a wall. After dueling three-and-out possessions, the Bengals' defense created a big play. And, wouldn't you know it? It was the dean of their defense--Leon Hall.

The Eagles were looking to further their lead after some Bengals punts, but rookie Nick Foles fluttered a wobbly pass down the sideline, ripe for the picking. Cornerback Leon Hall grabbed his first interception of the year, putting Cincinnati in great field position. They are driving for the potential lead.


Eagles Field Goal Creates 13-10 Lead Over Bengals

After the Eagles were able to turn Andy Dalton's fumble into three points on the scoreboard, a lot of back-and-forth ensued, as both teams were struggling to find first downs.

The Bengals had an uphill battle after a holding penalty from Jermaine Gresham, and they were unable to overcome from 1st and 20. Facing a 3rd down, Dalton was sacked for a nine yard loss.

The Bengals were forced to punt to the Eagles, who began their drive at their own 45 yard line.

The Eagles shared the same three-and-out fate that the Bengals did, and were forced to punt to the Bengals.

Unfortunately for the Bengals, Brandon Tate opted to catch the ball at the one yard line rather than let the ball bounce into the end zone for a touchback.

Dalton was quick to strike A.J. Green for a 12-yard completion which put the ball on Cincinnati's 22 yard line (in other words, two yards beyond where the Bengals should have started their drive, Brandon Tate). A six yard rush up the middle by Green-Ellis and a three yard completion to Jermaine Gresham left the Bengals offense with a big 3rd and 1 with 2:34 left in the half. Andy Dalton was able to sneak up the middle and convert for the first down. Then a would-be ten yard rush from Dalton was taken back after Andre Smith was called for holding.

Then, it happened: Andy Dalton, again, loses the football as Cullen Jenkins forces the fumble with Dalton in throwing motion.

The Eagles, already in the red zone, used rookie Bryce Brown to work their way into a first down with 39 seconds left in the half. An illegal snap penalty on Eagles center Dallas Reynolds brought the Eagles back to their own seven yard line. Nick Foles was able to complete a pass to Clay Harbor just a yard shy of the end zone, but Nick Foles couldn't capitalize on an end zone completion on two more tries.

Alex Henery was able to nail a 20 yard field goal to give the Eagles a three point lead heading into halftime.

The Bengals have allowed 13 unanswered points and desperately need to collect themselves for the remaining thirty minutes of this game.



The Bengals and Eagles second half open thread.


Eagles Score FG After Andy Dalton Fumble

Andy Dalton's second quarter fumble clearly defines the Cincinnati Bengals collapse where the Philadelphia Eagles are definitely absorbing the momentum.

After a quick 11-yard dump off pass to Bryce Brown, the Eagles have first down inside the red zone with 9:18 remaining in the second quarter.

And just as it appears that the Bengals defense will do their part holding the Eagles with a two-yard loss by Emmanuel Lamur, Cincinnati's defense lost their composure with a defensive hold by Vontaze Burfict and personal foul on Adam Jones, setting up first and goal at the Bengals three-yard line.

Incomplete shovel pass, tipped pass by Burfict setting up third and goal. Overthrow to Clay Harbor. Eagles convert the field goal and tie the game at ten.


Bengals Starting To Implode With Dalton Fumble

After the Philadelphia Eagles got back into the game with an 11-yard touchdown to Riley Cooper, Brandon Tate gave the Bengals decent field position with a 33-yard return to the Eagles 35-yard line.

Yet it didn't matter.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis was obliterated for a one-yard loss, followed by a seven-yard shovel pass to Brian Leonard and a false start by Marvin Jones, setting up a third and nine at Cincinnati's 36-yard line. Dalton drops back, shows obsessive indecision and gets the football knocked out of his hands by defensive end Brandon Graham.

Trent Cole recovered the football at Cincinnati's 29-yard line. A quick review later and the Eagles have the football.

After scoring ten points on their opening two possessions, the Bengals have gone punt, three and out and fumble.

The implosion thus is on.


Eagles Climb Back In On Riley Cooper Touchdown

Well, this looks familiar, doesn't it? The Bengals have dominated the game for almost the entire quarter-plus of football, but somehow the Eagles are right in it. After a lackluster couple of drives by the Bengals offense, the Bengals defense was yet again tasked with saving the day. Midway through the second quarter, the defense they were relying on faltered.

The Bengals had been holding Nick Foles and Bryce Brown in check until Foles completed a 46-yard completion to Jeremy Maclin on a pump fake pass. Chris Crocker was beaten badly on the play, but he wasn't the only defender who bit on the fake screen pass. It set the Eagles up to get right back in the game. And they did.

Nick Foles hit Riley Cooper on a 11-yard touchdown pass to cut the Bengals lead 10-7. After a quick start, thanks to a couple of Philadelphia turnovers, the Bengals offense has absolutely sputtered. Bengals have the ball with around ten minutes left in the half.


FB Pressley Is Out With A Knee Injury

With 3:24 remaining in the the first quarter, BenJarvus Green-Ellis picked up a yard to Cincinnati's 46-yard line on first and ten.

During the play fullback Chris Pressley collapsed holding onto his knee. Though he walked off the field under his own power, Pressley has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Brian Leonard is listed as the backup full back.


Bengals Block Punt; Field Goal Makes It 10-0

The Eagles were unable to make anything happen offensively after BenJarvus Green-Ellis gave the Bengals a 7-0 lead. After going three and out, the Eagles were set to punt the ball away to the Bengals.

If only it were that easy for the Eagles.

Daniel "Boom" Herron pushed Marvin McNutt into Eagles punter Mat McBriar which blocked McBriar’s punt and the ball was recovered by Cincinnati. The Bengals were finding themselves with the ball yet again in fantastic field position.

The Bengals began their second drive at the Eagles 11-yard line. A hand off to Green-Ellis for a short gain was followed by a sack on Andy Dalton who attempted to scramble out of the pocket. Dalton was able to complete a pass to Jermaine Gresham for six yards, but the Bengals ultimately were forced to kick a 24 yard field goal, resulting in a 10-0 Bengals lead with 7:51 left in the first quarter.


Bengals Take 7-0 Lead After BJGE Touchdown

What a start.

After the opening kickoff and a nine-yard pass to Riley Cooper, the Eagles have second and one at the Eagles 28-yard line with 14:21 remaining in the first quarter. Quick bubble screen on second down to Jeremy Maclin, who picks up the first down.

Yet Carlos Dunlap tracks Maclin down from behind, swats the football out of the receivers hands, recovered by Domata Peko at the Eagles 44-yard line.

Hand off to BenJarvus Green-Ellis, who explodes through the line of scrimmage, down the right sidelines for a 29-yard gain. A near-interception turned eight-yard reception and five-yard Green-Ellis run later, and the Bengals have first and goal from the Eagles two-yard line.

Bengals offensive coordinator kept the Green-Ellis train running, pounding the football three straight times, ending with a one-yard touchdown and 7-0 lead.


Eagles Win The Toss And Open On Offense

Joining quarterback Andy Dalton and Rey Maualuga as captains at midfield are defensive end Robert Geathers, running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis and special teams player Vinny Rey.
