Second Half Open Thread: Denver Broncos @ Cincinnati Bengals

New, comments

The Bengals first half played out as well as one could hope for, with one glaring issue; the Bengals inability to finish drives and score. Offensively, the Bengals recorded eight first downs and 185 yards total. Carson Palmer has completed nine passes for 132 yards; a nasty blemish is the interception off a deflection by Champ Bailey. The defense forced five first-half punts and four-straight three-and-outs. Cedric Benson leads the team with 81 yards total.

Palmer - 9/15 for 132 yards, interception
Orton - 7/14 for 58 yards

Cedric - 15 rushes, 55 yards
Buckhalter - 5 rushes, 35 yards
Moreno - 3 rushes, 6 yards

Ochocinco - 2 receptions, 56 yards
Benson - 2 receptions, 26 yards
Gaffney - 3 receptions, 25 yards
