Welcome to the NFL, Cam Newton! The Panthers’ star rookie struggled with his accuracy all night, but did excel running the ball including 16-yard TD run for the games first score.
It was then that the Bengals unleashed a stunning 24-point offensive assault. The scoring included a 40-yard TD pass and run from QB Andy Dalton to WR A.J. Green, 2 rushing TDs (Cedric Benson & Bernard Scott) and capped off by a 55-yard FG by Matt Nugent just before halftime. This lead to a final score of 24-13 and a major Preseason win for the Bengals.
