The Washington Redskins opened the second half after deferring the coin toss before the start of Sunday's game. The Redskins called consecutive runs, gaining five yards though Geno Atkins stoned Alfred Morris on second down for a no-gain. Robert Griffin III takes the third and five snap out of shotgun and converts the first down to Washington's 39-yard line on a 14-yard Fred Davis reception.
The Redskins picked up a first down first down on a 12-yard reception by tight end Fred Davis, followed by an Evan Royster 9.9999 yard run up the middle, which was converted into a first down following a five-yard Alfred Morris and a horse collar on Adam Jones.
Now the Redskins are marching down the field, reaching Cincinnati's 20-yard line in no-time. Morris picked up another six yards, followed by a first down run by Robert Griffin on a designed run towards the left sidelines, to Cincinnati's seven-yard line.
It was too easy.
Morris takes the handoff around the right edge, avoids the Robert Geathers attempted tackle that Morris easily spins away from, scoring a touchdown and reducing Cincinnati's advantage to seven points.
