Green and Dalton set personal records on 82-yard touchdown

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals took a 7-0 lead on an 82-yard touchdown pass with over 11 minutes remaining in the first quarter.

Adam Jones made the error of fielding Detroit's punt at the two-yard line. Though he returned it eight yards to the ten-yard line, it still forced the Bengals to start at their own 10-yard line instead of the 20. A BenJarvus Green-Ellis eight-yard gain, Willie Young offsides, and Clint Boling false start later, the Bengals have first and 15 from their own 18-yard line with 11:12 remaining in the first quarter.

Dalton fakes the handoff left and rolls out right in a naked bootleg. Lions cornerback Houston bit on Green's double-move, leaving him wide open down the right sidelines. Dalton launched the football, caught by Green, who sprints 82 yards to the endzone to give the Bengals a 7-0 lead.

It's Dalton's longest passes in his career and Green's longest reception.
