The Dallas Cowboys strung together a five-play possession, a couple of first downs by only managed to reach their own 30-yard line. Chad Jones came onto the field and punted the football into the Dallas scoreboard which may or may not be bigger than the original starship Enterprise.

After a quick review, the officials forced Dallas to punt the football again.

So Jones punted again.

And Brandon Tate found a lane. Eventually he leaned towards the right and sprinted down the sidelines for a 75-yard punt return for a touchdown to give Cincinnati a 7-0 lead.

This is the second punt return for a touchdown for the Bengals during the preseason, following Dane Sanzenbacher's 71-yard return against the Atlanta Falcons.
