Yesterday, the Cincinnati Bengals were in Dallas, Texas to play their third preseason game of the year. The Bengals had won their first two games, and Dallas came into the game with a 1-2 record.
The Bengals got on the board first when Brandon Tate had a 75 yard punt return for a touchdown. There was actually a punt before that, but it hit the Cowboy’s ginormous scoreboard, so it had to be re-punted.
The Cowboys would tie the game in the 2nd quarter when Tony Romo connected with Dez Bryant for a 5 yard score. Then, with only 40 seconds left in the 1st half, Romo found Miles Austin in the endzone for a 12 yard score. It was 14-7 Cows at the half.
The Bengals offense took the field to start the 2nd half, Andy Dalton and company marched the team down the field, but could not get in the endzone. The Bengals settled for a 28 yard field goal from Quinn Sharp, 17-10.
Kyle Orton would take over as the QB for Dallas, and he was able to connect with DeMarco Murray for a 7 yard score, the Cowboys had a 21-10 lead.
With 07:01 left in the game, Josh Johnson found Cobi Hamilton in the endzone from four yards out, it was 18-21.
With less than one minute left in the game, the Cowboys’ kicker, Dan Bailey, kicked a 26 yard field goal to make it 24-18, and that’s how she finished.
Andy Dalton looked pretty good, he went 12 of 16, 113 yards, and a pick. The Bengals didn’t have much of a running game, Giovani Bernard lead the way with 39 yards on six carries. AJ Green was the leading receiver, he had 3 receptions, good for 42 yards.
The Bengals will end their preseason on Thursday against the Indianapolis Colts. That game will start at 7 PM ET at Paul Brown Stadium. Tickets are still available, so go on down to PBS and watch the team play.
