Cincinnati Bengals dominating Denver Broncos on both sides of the ball after first quarter of play

After winning the coin toss, the Denver Broncos seemed to mail it in as the Cincinnati Bengals promptly drove the ball 80 yards on 15 plays for this beautiful fade from AJ McCarron to A.J. Green.

That drive would eat up half the quarter.

Brock Osweiler needed to respond to that, but he would find himself sacked and drive stalled near midfield.

After pinning the Bengals deep inside the 10 yard line, the Broncos defense once again could not figure out how to stop the Bengals on third down.

The quarter ends with another third down near midfield. Can the Broncos defense stop them?
