Another touchdown reception from Mohamed Sanu gave Cincinnati a 21-0 lead. The Bengals then added three more on a Mike Nugent 55-yard field goal to make it 24-0, which is where we stand headed into the locker room.
Sanu's touchdown catch came off a five-yard pass from quarterback Andy Dalton -- the second time this game that those two have hooked up for a score. The first time was with just over three minutes to play in the first quarter on a two-yard pass to make it 14-0.
Benjarvus Green-Ellis also ran in for a touchdown to open the scoring for Cincinnati.
Meanwhile things have not been easy for Oakland offensively. While quarterback Carson Palmer improved modestly from a tough first quarter, his nine completions have not amounted to any points.
Marcel Reece has caught two passes for a total of 20 yards and has rushed for 16 more to lead the Raiders. Brandon Myers has four receptions for 30 yards.
Green-Ellis is the game's leading rusher so far with 74 yards on 10 carries.
