What is with the Cowboys?
After the Bengals take a quick lead, Dallas' offense finally wakes up reminiscent of Cincinnati's loss last year in week 12. Starting from their own 13-yard line -- helped with a five-yard penalty having too many men on the field -- the Bengals defense bent to the point of having their backs broken.
It was seriously a disappointing possession that lacked coverage by the team's cornerbacks.
Whether it was a slant that exposed a brief gap in zone coverage against Terence Newman, Leon Hall's missed tackle on a nasty spin move by Austin Miles, or Dre Kirkpatrick being schooled in the endzone by Dez Bryant (and that was after Kirkpatrick's missed tackle on another Bryant six-yard reception), the Cowboys tied the game by charging 87 yards on 12 plays.
