The Bengals offense took the ball at Jacksonville's 37-yard line with 11:07 remaining in the game. Following consecutive Bernard Scott runs for eight yards, quarterback Andy Dalton throws an incomplete to A.J. Green on a slant to the left. Place kicker Mike Nugent trots onto the field and converts the 47-yard field goal to give the Bengals a 16-13 lead.

This comes after the Jacksonville Jaguars and Bengals have punted a combined eight times (four per team) with the Bengals slowly winning field position thanks to a defense that's forced three three-and-outs in four second half Jaguar possessions; though Cincinnati's second half offense is just a putrid.

Cincinnati holds onto a three-point lead with 9:41 remaining in the game.
