Unlike last week when the Bengals decided to pull Andy Dalton for backup Bruce Gradkowski (to save the rookie quarterback's life), Cincinnati kept their young rising star in the game with the Bengals leading by a significant margin (by significant we mean two scores late in the game). Cincinnati's balance was as close as one can get between passing the football and running and with Brian Leonard's absence last week, Cedric Benson took a bulk of the third down duties especially as a blocker. After the jump we (actually Pro Football Focus) break down the offense per snap.
