Cincinnati wide receiver Marvin Jones took the second-half opening kickoff, choosing to take a knee for the touchback. Perhaps he had seen some of the banged up knees of fellow starters that left the game Friday evening. Who knows. Anyway, he wasn't done. On Cincinnati's first play of the second half, Marvin Jones dropped to his knees scooping an underthrown Bruce Gradkowski pass for a minimal three yards. Two plays later Jones smoked Jets cornerback Isaiah Trufant on a vertical route down the right sidelines, hauling in a perfectly placed Gradkowski throw, gaining 45 yards to the Jets 28-yard line.

Then it was power football.

Cedric Peerman ran four consecutive times for 22 yards and Aaron Brown followed with a head of steam to the Jets one-yard line. Peerman scored on the following play to give the Bengals a 17-3 lead on a nine-play, 80-yard drive in 4:40.
