Cincinnati's Scoring Drive: How They Beat the Odds
Prior to the rain pouring down in Cincinnati for the Patriots final drive, the Bengals were faced with a key drive of their own. The Patriots had Cincinnati pinned to their own seven-yard line, leaving the Bengals with a 60 percent chance of punting on the drive. After two bad plays, quarterback Andy Dalton faced a key 3rd-and-15, a play that had an 85 percent punting probability. But he converted, and it was the start of an unlikely scoring scenario for Cincinnati.
