Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals GameThread - Second Half

Thanks in large part to two fortuitous bounces and some terrible quarterback play from Cincinnati Bengals rookie Andy Dalton, the Buffalo Bills hold a 17-3 halftime lead in Week 4 action.

After going down 3-0 early, a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass forced into coverage bounced into the waiting hands of an uncovered Naaman Roosevelt, who gained 28 yards on the play and keyed a game-tying field goal drive. Later in the half, Dalton threw a pass underneath to Andre Caldwell that bounced off of the receiver's hands, then his feet into Bryan Scott's arms, who promptly returned the pick 43 yards for a go-ahead touchdown.

George Wilson then picked off a Dalton pass late in the first half, and Buffalo took the ball down the field - getting big plays from Fred Jackson and Stevie Johnson - before Jackson capped the drive off with a two-yard touchdown run.

Dalton is 7-of-20 for 116 yards with the two picks, and the Bills have also sacked him twice while harrassing him effectively all half. Still, Cincinnati's defense has been tough; if Chan Gailey can solve it at halftime, the Bills have a chance to put this game away early. Go Bills!
