Dolphins lead Bengals 7-6 going to third quarter

CINCINNATI -- This is a hard game to get a grasp on.

The Dolphins gave six points away in the first quarter. The Bengals had two turnovers in the second quarter and the Miami offense moved the ball very well on one drive to take a 7-6 lead at halftime.

Interesting that Nolan Carroll is holding up so far.

Cincy QB Andy Dalton is clearly not having a good day, with his accuracy way off. He has comleted 11 of 18 passes for 83 yards. Ryan Tannehill so far is the better QB in this game. He is 7of 10 for 101 yards.

"Carpenter was crapping his pants"

So was I. LOL!!!

Daniel Thomas is disappointing
He's slow, no sense of field, not agressive

How did Thomas not get the First Down the Ref's foot was right on the line waiving his hands WTF!! is going ion with these refs today??

not even a challenge on that spot? Every spot we get is terrible

The right call, as it shows confidence in Carpenter, and keeps the MO on our side.
And move our CB's up.
Next drive, Dansby and Burnett have to play the short stuff.

Sherman IMO. Not calling a good game. Hartline has one on one and Lamar would have got that first down. Thomas slow! Why not put reggie in that screen play! IMO some stupid play calling by sherman

17 unanswered points. Good job offense and d.

no d needs to step up. this is usually the point where they get soft

Carroll is back.

Carpenter is hitting too? Great.

I posted it the last two weeks, Yanny doesn't drop deep enough on the screens. He did better on the last one.

PROGRESS Baby! I'll take it.

BTW_The O-lineman should have peeled back on the screen and it could have been a TD. Surely a 1st.

"yes!!! Carpenter hist a + 40 yard field goal. We are now up by 2 scores.

We are looking better every week."


I'm with you but would love to see us close the deal today. Still plenty of time left.

Wow i love Reshard Jones!!!

Gotta give it to Philbin, I woulda gone for it on 4th!! He's a better man than me Fo sho!!

SMACKDOWN, WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RESHAD JONES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carpenter hits an FG :o we have to win this game!

Very notable the progress of Tannehill week in week out....safety Jones a very deceent game until now

R jones playing great this season

rushing yds so far


Bush now at 3.5

will we see Miller?

Jones is playing like a young Yeremiah Bell.

Big Stop

best run d in nfl. makes it hard for qb to pass

Sean Smith is growing up!!!! Atta boy!!

need a hold here

Bengals offense getting booed.

Jones playing big time!

Is Sean Smith turning into a "SHUTDOWN CORNER?" WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

watch for a sneak

Another TD here would be HUGE...Give us a bit of breathing room...

Mando, does the Herald sit u in press box or amongst the minions on away games?

Sean Smith is becoming a shutdown corner

I sit in the pressbox ... among the real minions, Robby.

Looks alright. You know what to do now.

A td here and we can definitely turn the "dogs loose" on Andy Dalton!

Notice how smith kept his hands OFF on Green. better technique.
They get 7 this trip, and we can finally get out of the over-time Groundhog Day syndrome.

Smith holding AJ Green to 26 yards??? Who are these guys on defense???

course smith is, its a contract year

The defense is playing lights out for Coyle. Reshad Jones seems to fit really well into this scheme.

Nows the time for a time eating drive and take all the wind out of the defense.

Not conservative, just SMART!

No TO's no dumb penalties! Right here, right now.

Mando, thanks for that last comment! Bout Cincy getting booed, means a lot, really!! Good feeling, now let's get a road win!

The Bengals were averaging 28 points per game coming into this game. So far they have 6.

Sean Smith has shut down Green.

That loss agains the Jets hurts. That was a bad loss when you start talking about playoffs.

carpenter has always been able to make those kicks. he missed a few so all of a sudden he is garbage??? I don't think so!!!!
and i think miller will see game time in the 4th Q when the defence is worn down and stretched.

Sherman needs to call better plays what happen to Hartline. Even the commentators. Are saying he is open one on one coverage. And no getting Reggie involved more in the passing game! Sherman please put Dan Henning play book away! Conservative play calling!

17 unaswered points will make the home crowd turn on thier team!


mando, any word why Lamar is not playing?
Where's ClAY?

agree on jets, bad loss at home to worst team in nfl

it's now that we need a killer pass rush.

odrick & vervovn just arent getting it done

course smith is, its a contract year


Crazy right??? Seems like everyone except Long is on pace for a career season who is in a contract year...

That's what I'm saying

Wow!!! I'm in aww by Tanny

Nice play Hartline/T-hill!

Again Hartline getting behind everyone...Unreal...

Armando, why D. Bess s number is not calling more often in the actual offense?

Wow, Tanny/Hartline. brian keeps moving!
This is where Tanny gets careless.
letds hope not

I see growth every week from T-Hill!! Wow!! Now he's stepping up!!!

We've got our quarterback, folks!

A young y.bell was always injured!

Bell had 4 good years at most!

T-Hill can change plays at the line and he does. How is this Sherman's fault? That he has a rookie calling audibles? Only way the kid can learn!

Again thill is not allowed to sizzle just yet!

Win from behind the LOS! Like a real QB!

This team is a pretty good one and getting better every week. With our sched, this can be a playoff team barring injuries and turnovers.

What a play by Tannehill??? He's a rookie???

We really need to find a way to slow the game down when we have a two possession lead. We have the clock on our side right now.
