Bengals Take A 10-3 Lead After A 13-Play Drive With Gradkowski Completing Every Pass

If you're name is Cedric, it means you're a decent running back and you lay the hammer if necessary.

Bengals quarterback Bruce Gradkowski leads the Bengals onto the field with over 12 minutes remaining in the game. Running back Cedric Peerman joined him, along with Colin Cochart, Ryan Whalen and Quan Cosby. And 13 plays later that takes over seven minutes, the Bengals take a 10-3 lead over the Colts, mostly with Bruce Gradkowski's arm, completing all seven passes for 53 yards passing.

Cedric Peerman, who gained 20 yards rushing on the drive, took the first down handoff from the Colts one-yard line, diving over the line of scrimmage to score the touchdown. He's the third running back to score a touchdown during the preseason, behind Cedric Peerman and Bernard Scott; both of whom scored touchdown last week against the Carolina Panthers.

Cincinnati converted all three third down opportunities for first downs.

Midway through the second quarter, the Bengals have produced 179 yards of total offense against the Colts 21 yards, with a 4-1 time of possession advantage.
