    Bengals Win in Overtime Thriller

    [​IMG]
    After suffering a nasty loss last week in Buffalo, the Bengals right the ship with a win on the road in overtime beating the Lions 40-34. There was plenty of offense in this one as both QBs found wholes in the other teams defense. There was some pretty nifty playcalling in this game on both sides as the DCs had fits trying to find ways to stop the bleeding. The first quarter started off pretty slow the Lions with the only score by way of a FG. Bengals would have gotten on the board too, but Nugent failed convert from 52 out. Both teams would trade touchdowns in the second quarter ending the Lions having a 14-17 lead.
    The second half would start like the first with the Lions converting a FG to add to their lead. The Bengals would answer back with an TD pass from Dalton to Gresham. Nugent would convert on the next Cincy possession giving a narrow lead at the end of the 3rd, 24-20. Detroit would lead a nice drive down to the red zone where Reggie Bush would plow in for the TD. Cincy would fire back with a drive of their own with BJGE walking into the endzone. After a Lion turnover, Dalton would milk the clock for a Nugent FG with 47 seconds left making the score 34-27. The defense could make the stance they needed and let Calvin Johnson loose for a 33 yard TD to tie the game. Dalton would try to get Nugent another try in regulation, but was unsuccessful.

    Overtime would start with the Lions receiving. After a couple of nice throws to start off, Hill got confused by the coverage and threw the ball right to the waiting hand of Vontaze Bufict for the INT, his second. The OC predicting an run blitz by the defense called a screen to Green-Ellis. He would rumble in for the score assisted by a great block from AJ Green to end the game. Unfortunately, the Bengals couldn't avoid the injury bug and lost LB Emmanuel Lamur to the dreaded broken collarbone. Dalton had gotten injured as well, but managed to come back into the game.

    Notable Stats:

    Dalton 27-32 452 yards 3 TD
    Sanu 7 91 yards
    AJ Green 6 132 yards 1 TD

    Ilonka 8 tackles 1 TFL
