After Cincinnati's defense forced the Redskins to punt on their first possession of the game, Washington punter Sav Rocca rolls the kick to the Bengals own one-yard line. BenJarvus Green-Ellis runs directly into a mass of bodies for a limited gain on first down. On second down Andy Dalton takes the snap and looks to Green-Ellis out of the flats on the left.
Defensive end Ryan Kerrigan takes advantage of the pump fake, nailing Dalton as he throws the football. The wobbly pass comes out of his hands, an effect of the hit, behind Green-Ellis and intercepted by Rob Jackson who rolls into the end zone for a touchdown.
The Redskins tie the game at seven.
