After a scoreless third quarter, the Dallas Cowboys now trail the Bengals, 19-10. Cincinnati dominated the third quarter, controlling time of possession and keeping Dallas off the field as they added six points to their lead. Josh Brown drilled two field goals for the damage -- one a chip shot from just 25 yards out, and the other a 52-yarder that cleared the crossbar with ease.
While the Bengals may not have found the end zone, it was a rather tumultuous quarter for the Cowboys defense. Rob Ryan was flagged 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct after losing his mind on an apparent holding penalty that was never called. Morris Claiborne was also taken to the locker room with a facial laceration after he was sandwiched between the Bengals Orson Charles and the Cowboys Danny McCray. Claiborne's head was crushed and his helmet went flying off, but after a call for the stretcher, he walked off the field under his own power and with a towel to his face.
The Dallas offense will have to get something going over the final 15 minutes to get back in it. They will open the quarter with the ball. Tony Romo is just 15 of 29 for 155 yards so far, and the only touchdown came as a result of prime field position from a turnover.
