Nate Clements Interception Leads To Mohamed Sanu Ten-Yard Touchdown

After the Bengals take a 24-6 lead midway through the third quarter, Eli Manning and the Giants offense are forced into a third and five from their own 23-yard line. Manning takes the snap, feels tremendous pressure from Geno Atkins, trying to get rid of the football. Unfortunately for the Giants, there were no receivers in the area.

Fortunately for the Bengals, Nate Clements was in prime position to haul in the interception, returning it 21 yards to the Giants 16-yard line.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis' picked up six yards on consecutive runs, setting up a third and four from the Giants 10-yard line. Andy Dalton takes the shotgun snap, targeting Mohamed Sanu, who boxed out the defender, scoring the touchdown.

The Bengals have a 31-6 lead with 4:20 remaining in the third quarter.
