Open Thread: Cincinnati Bengals at San Diego Chargers, 2nd Half

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODA

The Cincinnati Bengals and San Diego Chargers are tied 7-7 after two quarters of football at Qualcomm Stadium. Chat along with Chargers fans while watching the second half.

Let's start with the good news:

Now, the bad:

  • Mike McCoy decided to punt on 4th & 2 from the Bengals' 42 yard line.
  • Mike McCoy called a timeout to force Cincy to punt, then ran a give-up play at the end of the half.
  • Both teams have turned the ball over once, the Chargers' coming on a fumble from Antonio Gates.
  • The game is still blacked out locally.
  • BenJarvus Green-Ellis is averaging 5.9 yards per carry and looked unstoppable for an entire drive, which ended in a touchdown run for him.

The Chargers will need to start scoring points soon, they can't win a defensive battle against the Bengals. Cincinnati starts the second half with the ball, so this could easily be a 14-7 deficit the next time Philip Rivers gets his hands on the ball.
