The Falcons and Bengals were even until the last minute and change in the first half of their preseason matchup at the Georgia Dome. With each team scoring on a field goal and touchdown, and the Falcons putting in that additional field goal before the half ended, Atlanta is up, 13-10.
Cincinnati struck first with a 54-yard field goal by Mike Nugent with just over two minutes to go in the first quarter. Atlanta responded early in the second period with a field goal of its own, a 20-yard attempt from Matt Bryant.
Then touchdowns started happening. Andy Dalton and A.J. Green connected on a 50-yard pass to the right side to give the Bengals the lead. Matt Ryan and Lousaka Polite connected in the red zone to tie it all up at 10.
Bryant was successful on his second field goal of the game with 1:15 to go in the half.
