Bengals cruise to big lead vs. Vikings

Once again, the Bengals are rolling at Paul Brown Stadium.

Cincinnati, which is unbeaten at home this season, holds a 35-7 third-quarter lead against visiting Minnesota on Sunday afternoon.

Quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown for three touchdowns for Cincinnati, which has scored 28 consecutive points. Dalton’s latest TD pass was a back-shoulder seven-yard dart to Mohamed Sanu on the Bengals’ first drive of the second half.

Sanu’s score came one play after Giovani Bernard’s electric 41-yard reception, a play that featured a spin move and a stiff-arm.

Meanwhile, Dalton’s counterpart, Matt Cassel, has had a tough game. He has been intercepted twice, with one returned for a 25-yard touchdown by Bengals linebacker Vincent Rey. On the interception, Rey anticipated Cassel’s throw, stepping in front of the intended receiver, securing the ball and running away for the 25-yard score. Cassel also fumbled when sacked by Rey and safety Reggie Nelson on the Vikings’ first drive, setting up Cincinnati’s first score.

    Let’s see if the Vikings have the mental toughness to stage a comeback like the Packers did last week, or if they just mail this game in like they did the season.

    No matter how bad they get beaten… or what the stupid “win loss” column says…

    They’re still a dynasty to me…

    Frazier has lost the locker room. The team has quit on him.

    Cincy opening up a can. They are night and day different at home from on the road almost in Saint like territory of their identity shift home and away.

    I don’t respect fans who talk about how their team is during/after victories against terrible teams.

    The 2013 Minnesota Vikings are terrible.
