The Cincinnati Bengals defense has played their best football thus far in the first half against the Washington Redskins, forcing another punt with over eight minutes remaining. An eight-yard return establishes the Bengals at Washigton's 49-yard line. Andy Dalton rolls out right on first down, connects with Armon Binns on the run for a 9.99 yard-gain setting up second and one. BenJarvus Green-Ellis slides to the right and finds four yards and the first down.

Unfortunately an offensive holding on Andrew Whitworth puts the Bengals behind schedule. Following a five-yard run by BenJarvus-Green Ellis an incomplete pass to Andrew Hawkins (nice play by linebacker Perry Riley), the Bengals have third and 15 with over five minutes remaining. Dalton takes the shotgun snap, who feels pressure and begins to slide to the left. Gresham takes the reception over the middle for 12 yards to the Redskins 29-yard line.

Mike Nugent crushed the 47-yard field goal, giving the Bengals a 17-7 lead with 4:36 remaining in the second.
