            WEEK 12, GAME 11
           Jets 26, Bengals 10
  Thursday, Nov. 25, at New Meadowlands Stadium
      The Bengals lost for the second straight week after leading at halftime. QB
Carson Palmer’s five-yard TD pass to rookie WR Jordan Shipley gave Cincinnati
a 7-3 lead at the break, rewarding a consistent first-half defensive effort. But the
Jets wiped out the lead early in the third quarter when WR Brad Smith scored on
a 53-yard run on a reverse, and two special teams plays led to the Jets pulling
away. The Bengals muffed a punt later in the third quarter, with the Jets
recovering at the Cincinnati 14 and scoring two plays later. And after the Bengals
pulled to within 17-10 on an Aaron Pettrey 28-yard FG, the Jets applied the
finishing blow with an 89-yard Smith kickoff return for a score and a 24-10 edge.
The Bengals were held to 163 net yards on offense, their season-low by 90
yards. Cincinnati fell for the eighth game in a row and dropped to 2-9 on the
season, while the Jets improved to 9-2.
