    Week 6: Rams 31 Bengals 28 OT

    The St. Louis Rams keep themselves in contention in the NFC West with their second 31-28 OT win over an AFC North opponent this season. The Cincinatti Bengals played a hell of a game but the Rams were able to get every inch they needed down the stretch and won the toss of the coin to pull this game out in overtime. Here is a recap of the game.

    1st Quarter:

    Bengals receive the opening kickoff and run the ball successfully 3 consecutive times before sucking the defense up and throwing a 46 yard TD pass from Carson Palmer to Braylon Edwards to make the score 7-0 Bengals.

    Rams then put together an impressive drive which results in a Steven Jackson 9 yard TD run to tie this game 7-7.

    Bengals march their next drive down the field to the Rams 31 before fumbling and the Rams pick it up to end the 1st Quarter.

    2nd Quarter:

    Rams then go 3 and out on the next possession followed by a Bengals 4 and out.

    Rams drive the next possession down the field when WR Marques Colston drops a pass at the goaline on 3rd and 7 from the Bengals 18 which resulted in Rams booting a short FG for a 10-7 lead.

    The Bengals then punted, Rams punted, Bengals punted, then Rams threw an interception to Scott Shanle which was returned to the St. Louis 35 yard line with 15 seconds remaining in the 1st half. The Benglas then connect on a 16 and 18 yard pass to get to the Rams 1 with 3 seconds remaining. Coach Steven decides to go for it on the last play of the half and the Rams defense comes up HUGE and stuffs the Bengals HB Bernard Scott short of the goaline.

    HALFTIME: Rams 10 Bengals 7

    3rd Quarter:

    The Rams punted on their first possession and then it was time for the Bernard Scott show (Bengals HB). Scott took a handoff and busted tackles for a 32 yard TD to give the Bengals a 14-10 lead

    After a Rams FG on the next possession to make the score 14-13, the Bengals hand off to Bernard Scott on 1st down and he busts through the Rams defense on consecutive handoffs for a 74 yard TD run this time to stretch the Bengals lead to 21-13

    4th Quarter:

    The Rams then needed a big drive and they got it with Steven Jackson punching it in from 5 yards out and then getting the 2pt conversion also to tie this game at 21-21. ( I thought he was short of the goaline on the 2pt. try but I got lucky)

    The Bengals then struck it big again with a Braylon Edwards 52 yard screen pass for a TD to give the Bengals the lead back at 28-21 with 4:11 remaining.

    The Rams moved it back down the field with the clock running down and scored on a 7 yard Joseph Addai TD run to tie this game at 28-28 with 58 seconds remaining. Both teams had a chance with the ball in the final minute but neither could get into FG range as time ran out in regulation.

    Overtime:

    Rams won the toss and elected to receive. On 1st and 10 from the Rams own 37, Matt Cassel hit Joseph Addai out of the backfield for a nice 20 yard gain in which he was hit along the sideline and fumbled out of bounds when the referee decided to tack on a 15 yard penalty for unnecessary roughness and move the ball all the way to the Bengals 28 yard line. 2 plays later Josh Brown kicks a 42 yard FG to give the Rams another thrilling 31-28 win over the Bengals.

    Rams 3-3
    Bengals 3-3
