The Cincinnati Bengals offense went three and out following Reggie Nelson’s interception earlier in the third quarter. Jeromy Miles’ false start negated a Kevin Huber blocked punt, giving him another opportunity to kick the football into the endzone for a touchdown, forcing the Cardinals to start from their own 20-yard line.

Following a six-yard explosion through the line of scrimmage for a six-yard gain, Nate Clements made a great tackle on a Patrick Peterson bubble screen, fighting through a block for a one-yard loss setting up a third and five with under eight minutes remaining in the third quarter.

Jonathan Fanene and virtually the entire front seven sacked John Skelton for the fourth time today, forcing the Cardinals to punt on the three and out.

The Bengals are holding onto a 20-0 lead, after scoring ten points in each of the game's first two quarters, with around seven minutes remaining in the third quarter.
