Washington and Cincinnati have a low scoring 1st half

Close game between two bad teams

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Washington Football Team Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Football Team has had a few highlight reel plays so far in the first half, but they are still trailing the Cincinnati Bengals 9-7 after two quarters. Joe Burrow has had no trouble moving the ball on Washington's defense(except when he tries scrambling into the end zone, hi Chase Young!). Washington has been helped by Bengals Kicker Randy Bullock missing 2 FGs and an XP.

Cincinnati gets the ball back in the 3rd quarter, and Washington's defense will need to do a better job stopping the quick passing game, and a running game that is picking up yards in chunks. The offense had one big play to Terry McLaurin, but will need to move the ball better in the 2nd half if they actually want to win this game.
