Dalton outshines RG3 as Bengals hold off Redskins
"We're making plays,'' receiver A.J. Green said, "all over the field.''
No doubt about that.
The Bengals opened the game with rookie receiver Mohamed Sanu throwing a 73-yard touchdown to Green. Green-Ellis took a direct snap on a 1-yard touchdown run to make the score 24-7 in the second quarter. Cincinnati also ran several end-arounds and used a no-huddle package that befuddled the Redskins. Dalton completed scoring throws of 48 yards to Armon Binns and 59 yards to Andrew Hawkins.
Hoard: RR1 is pretty special too
Next up: At Jacksonville

They ran 3rd and 9, own 21, less 2-minutes left in game.

Reds, Giants share challenges, and clinching day
The Giants lost closer Brian Wilson after just two April appearances. They lost Cabrera in August.
Cabrera seemed crucial to the Giants' offense when they still had him. He's still leading the National League in batting now. He's still second on the team in RBI.
The Giants were tied for the division lead with the Dodgers the day he was suspended.
They've gone 25-10 since.
They've been so good that they'd still be leading the division, even if they 10 wins deducted for using a cheater for the first 4 1/2 months.

From FS Ohio
Going into today's Reds game on FOX, the Reds magic number for clinching the NL Central was 1. FOX Sports Ohio had every intention of covering post-game celebration live if the Reds won.
When it looked as though the Reds were going to win, we promoted that we would have live celebration coverage immediately following the game.
Unfortunately just prior to air, the signal was lost out of Cincinnati. Our engineers feverishly tried to restore the transmission but they were unable to recover it.
We will air special on Monday at 8pm, featuring the post-game celebration. While this special cannot replace the live coverage lost this evening, we hope Reds fans will be able to enjoy the Reds clinching the Central Division.
We sincerely apologize for the disappointment and frustration this caused so many Reds fans.

It was Father/Daughter Date Night Friday Night. I took Peyton to the NKU women's soccer game. We had hot chocolate and watched soccer. That's a great setting for soccer. Cool stadium.
