PASS OFFENSE (B)
After being almost too conservative during the first half, things opened up in the second half as Andy Dalton had one of the quieter 100-plus passer rating games that you will see. Dalton was a solid 21 of 31 for 270 yards and a touchdown and also did a great job making plays with his feet. Two great athletic catches by A.J. Green along with a touchdown by Jermaine Gresham. Andre Smith gave up the sack to Jabaal Sheard which caused the Andy Dalton fumble but rebounded in the second half.
RUN OFFENSE (B)
Cedric Benson had his third straight 100-yard game against Cleveland. Of his 21 carries, eight were for five yards or more and only three were for negative yards. Good job by the left side of the line and the receivers on some of Benson’s long runs on getting the proper fits. The lack of being able to convert in short yardage at the goalline though is troubling.

At least for one half, it looks like the Bengals have fallen into the trap game syndrome.
Cleveland has a 17-7 lead at the half with a couple solid drives and taking advantage of a late Bengals turnover in the second quarter.
Then again trailing at the half is nothing new for the Bengals. This is the seventh time in 12 games this season and they are 3-3 in the previous games.
