    WEEK 15
    This was an exciting game in a lot of different ways. Ghost had his Eagles ready to play today and the Bengals have been on a very hot streak at 7 wins in a row. The opening quarter seen the Bengals giving the game away from the first whistle. The Eagles intercepted Andy Dalton on the Bengals first possession and promptly returned it for a pick 6. The Bengals woes continued as they continuously failed to execute and make good decisions, as Andy Dalton was intercepted again later in the quarter which led to another Eagles TD. By the 1st quarters end, this game was looking like a blowout with the Eagles leading 21-3.
    The Bengals rallied from the 1st quarter on and fought their way back into the game by stopping the high powered Eagles offense on a few occasions and the offense took the opportunity to put points on the board and make the game competitive again. Once the score was close again both teams offenses just lit up the scoreboard repeatedly.
    In the fourth quarter the Bengals found themselves down 4 with 1 minute and some change and 1 timeout remaining. QB Andy Dalton, who had played fabulous outside of his 1st quarter retardedness, attempted to hit Jermaine Gresham down the seam for a long gain, but was instead picked off. The game appeared to be wrapped up as all the Eagles had to do was burn the clock and it was gameover. Shady McCoy rushed the ball left on a power o run only to fumble the ball which was promptly scooped up by Robert Geathers and returned to the Eagles redzone. The Bengals, after 3 plays, put the ball in the endzone and took the late lead by 3.
    The Eagles would not be denied and drove down the field and kicked a FG as time expired to send this one to overtime.
    In overtime the Eagles won the toss and elected to receive. On the 3rd or 4th play from scrimmage, Shady McCoy AGAIN fumbled the ball and the Bengals recovered on the 29 yard line. After seeing the catastrophic fumble by the Eagles, Coach DU elected to not play with fire by trying to edge the ball closer and instead just decided to kick the field goal from where they were. Clutch kicker Mike Nugent came through when his team needed him most to snatch victory away from the Eagles.
    QB Mike Vick was near flawless in this game with a passer rating that ended at 158. He also was able to keep drives alive and even score once on his legs. Andy Dalton had an abyssmal 1st quarter, but otherwise played lights out throwing 5 TD passes on the day. Both run games were pivotal and played very nicely.
    All in all this game was decided because the Bengals didn't lay down and quit when they were down big. The other major factor was the ball control by Shady McCoy. If McCoy doesn't fumble the ball in the 4th, the Eagles easily walk away with the win here.
    6 receptions for 147 yards and 2 TD
    Long reception of 80 yards
    Great game Ghost .
