Bengals Vs. Texans, 2012 AFC Wild Card: Cincy Still Struggling

The Cincinnati Bengals' second drive of the second half against the Houston Texans was better than their first. But only marginally.

The Bengals got first down on this drive, on a run up the middle and a throw from Andy Dalton to Ryan Whalen, but the Cincinnati offensive line melted down again on third down, forcing Dalton to take a sack that necessitated another Kevin Huber punt.

Huber has punted three times on the day, but already has two punts midway through the third quarter. A.J. Green still leads the Bengals in catches and receiving yards, with four for 42 yards, but has not made a catch since the second quarter.

The score remains 17-10 in Houston's favor.
