Both teams are struggling to move the football, thanks to aggressive defenses trying to rattle each other's quarterbacks, no thanks to both teams housing stale rushing offenses.
San Francisco has punted five times in the first half, during each of their first half possessions.
The Bengals weren't much better; following their 12-play drive that scored the game's only points, Cincinnati has punted four times, not including their possession with a minute remaining in the first half that ended with a knee and a jog to the locker room.
Will Cincinnati break out of their offensive funk and can the defense sustain their aggressive nature?
We'll find out in the second half, which will begin with San Francisco receiving the second half opening kickoff.
