The Buffalo Bills drove into scoring position on the first three of their first half drives but come away with just 10 points. The defense has given up a number of big plays and 284 yards while the Cincinnati Bengals lead the home team 17-10 as the teams enter halftime.
The Bengals have played off Buffalo's attacking defense with screen passes and misdirection. Two wide receiver screens have netter almost 100 yards through the air while a reverse gained 40+ yards on Cincy's first drive. Jim Leonhard responded with a red zone interception late in the first half to flip the field after an exquisite Brian Moorman punt went out of bounds inside the one-yard-line.
Thaddeus Lewis is playing like a man on fire. He has converted third downs with his legs and arm and two of his three incompletions were drops by his receivers. He has a rushing touchdown but was stopped on fourth-and-goal, ending another drive.
The Bills will get the ball to start the second half.
