The Bengals are making it a point to get the ball in the hands of Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green and lead the Dolphins, 16-7, at halftime. Miami doesn't have an answer for Green, who beat both Miami cornerbacks Xavien Howard and Tony Lippett to the tune of eight receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. The Dolphins scored on the opening drive for the first time this season with a 74-yard touchdown catch by receiver Kenny Stills. Miami finally got off to a fast start and scored its first opening-drive touchdown of the season. However, the Dolphins mostly stalled on offense the rest of the half.

Dolphins go halftime draw, speed up, throw two incomplete passes, punt with 30 seconds and leave Cincy with three timeouts.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Then there are the Dolphins. No Kenyan Drake. No DeVante Parker. One Jarvis Landry catch. Boo. Must be the uniforms.

You can tell the Bengals are really missing Tyler Eifert. Mostly in the red zone

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Pretty good play, Carlos Dunlap, considering you were being mauled in the face mask. Dolphins strugglin.

Katherine Terrell ESPN Staff Writer 

Big momentum shift for the Bengals after Carlos Dunlap swatted the ball out of Ryan Tannehill's hands. Bengals are set up at the Dolphins 25 at the two minute warning. Could be a big chance to draw away here.

NFL did not pay Lady Gaga to perform at Super Bowl Halftime, nor did Gaga pay them, they say. Sponsor Pepsi says it didn't pay her either.

Bengals WR A.J. Green already has eight catches for 123 yards and a touchdown in the first half against the Dolphins.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Dalton throwing to Green more than half the time. Miami no answers. Could this be the night Flipper Anderson's 336 rec yards broken?

Bill Barnwell @billbarnwell

Like if you told me next week the Dolphins were going to start Christian Okoye and bring Trung Canidate off the bench I'd believe you

James Walker ESPN Staff Writer 

Dolphins CB Tony Lippett, who replaced Byron Maxwell, now has two third-down pass defenses in the first half against the Bengals.
