Bengals tie game at 7-7 as Carolina Panther run defense having major trouble

Carolina's defense is having all kinds of trouble stopping Cincinnati's run game, and Cedric Benson has tied the game at 7-all with 12 minutes left in the 2nd quarter.

The Bengals drove 80 yards on 15 grinding plays, and most of it was Benson running straight up the gut. The Panthers' defensive tackles are having all sorts of trouble holding up. The offense actually had only one possession in the first quarter -- Cam Newton scored on a 16-yard run.

Benson has already carried for close to 60 yards and a touchdown. In the first quarter, the Bengals ran off 21 plays compared to Carolina's eight.

Geez!!! This defense is horrible. Guess that first preseason game was very misleading.

Bengals over 100 yards rushing. 1st half isn`t over yet. Cam 2 for 9 for 15 yards. Did have nice run for TD.
