Now that the fans can breath a little easier. At one point the Washington Redskins wiped out a 17-point Bengals lead, claiming a huge chunk of the momentum in the third quarter. Then the fourth quarter started and the Bengals recovered. Following consecutive possessions that resulted in two touchdown and a Bengals 14-point lead, the Redskins start from their own 10-yard line, thanks to a personal foul during the ensuing kickoff.

Following an incomplete pass, a Fred Davis 16-yard reception and six-yard gain by Roy Helu, offensive tackle Jordan Black was called for an offensive holding, pushing Washington's offense back to their own 22-yard line with 6:03 remaining in the game. The Redskins recovered on a massive 29-yard reception by Fred Davis, shedding off a terrible tackling effort by Reggie Nelson. Leonard Hankerson picked up nine yards on second down to Cincinnati's 35-yard line with five minutes remaining.

Eventually the Redskins would score a touchdown on a quarterback keeper from the one-yard line after a series of terrible Rey Maualuga missed tackles and wide open receivers. Bengals holding onto a 38-31 lead.
