BenJarvus Green-Ellis' Second Career Fumble Blows Scoring Opportunity

With 11:07 remaining in the third quarter, during what will be dubbed the A.J. Green drive for his four receptions and 57 yards receiving, the Bengals call BenJarvus Green-Ellis' number on third and goal from the Jaguars one-yard line. As he's bracing himself for a powerful blast into the mass of bodies on the goalline, the football is punched out by defensive end Jeremy Mincey and recovered by C.J. Mosley in the endzone.

Not only did the Bengals fail to score on a 79-yard drive to kickoff the second half, BenJarvus Green-Ellis fumbled for the second time in his last 22 carries. The first two in his professional career.
