Cardinals Vs. Bengals Score Update: Cardinals Trail 23-0 Entering Fourth Quarter

The visiting Arizona Cardinals are having a tough time in their Week 16 game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Through three full quarters of play, the score stands at 23-0 in favor of the Bengals.

The Arizona offense continues to struggle mightily, as the Bengals defense has refused to let up on quarterback John Skelton. The Cardinals QB has been held to under 100 passing yards while throwing three interceptions and being sacked five times.

If there is one positive to be taken away from the first three quarters for Arizona, it is that the Cardinals defense has performed better in the second half. After allowing 10 points in each of the first two quarters, they only allowed a 32-yard Mike Nugent field goal in the third quarter.

The defense cannot do it alone, however, as it looks like the Cardinals will need an enormous offensive fourth quarter in order to keep their playoff hopes alive.
