BenJarvus Green-Ellis Carries the Load Into The End Zone; Bengals Lead 7-0

Well, that didn't take long.

The Bengals began their drive from their own 42 yard line. After a Mohamed Sanu reception, Andy Dalton handed off to BenJarvus Green-Ellis for a short gain and the Bengals were faced with a 3rd and 1. Green-Ellis was given the ball again, and he exploded through the line for 48 yards.

What was originally ruled a touchdown was reversed as Green-Ellis was ruled down a yard short of the end zone. Naturally, the Bengals were quick to use Green-Ellis to finish what he started. It took Green-Ellis two tries, but he was able to get the points.

The Bengals lead the Raiders 7-0 with just over nine minutes left in the first quarter.
