The Cincinnati Bengals have taken a 17-6 lead on a beautiful Andy Dalton throw over the middle to Marvin Jones, breaking Carson Palmer's single-season touchdown record.

With the Bengals defense stalling Baltimore into a sense of depression (have you SEEN their sidelines in the second quarter), the offense is capitalizing. Starting from their own 48-yard line with 4:41 remaining in the second quarter, the Bengals conducted a five-play possession that gained 52 yards but it was the final play that deserves the recognition.

With two minutes remaining in the first half, Dalton and the Bengals have third and three from the Ravens 16-yard line. The third-year quarterback eased the football over the defense for Marvin Jones, he laid out and hauled in a beautiful reception to give Cincinnati a 17-6 lead.

The touchdown is Dalton's 33rd on the season, breaking Carson Palmer's franchise record of 32.
