Miami Dolphins Take 7-6 Lead Over The Cincinnati Bengals Into Half Time

Sunday's game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins isn't for the weak of heart, if you're fandom is generated from the offensive side of the football. The Dolphins (132) have a four-yard advantage against the Bengals (128) on total offense and a 7-6 lead at half time.

It's a frustrating Bengals offense with a failed redzone effort and only one of eight conversions on third down. BenJarvus Green-Ellis has only generated seven yards on five carries and Andy Dalton's passing average is a mediocre 4.6 yards per attempt. Armon Binns fumbled the football, but it didn't hurt Cincinnati as the defense prevented Miami from converting on third and fourth and one. Yet Cincinnati's rushing defense, ranked No. 24 entering Sunday's game, has only allowed 34 yards rushing and a 1.8 yard/rush average. That being said Ryan Tannehill has found open tight ends and backs out of the backfield, completing seven of 10 passes for 101 yards passing.

The Bengals, who recovered two first half Miami fumbles, will open the second half with possession after winning the opening coin toss and deferring.
