The Denver Broncos didn't waste any time in the third quarter to put another score on the board. Wide receiver Eric Decker, one of the few remaining healthy ones, started in place of Brandon Lloyd and has had a nice run of things picking up three receptions for 58 yards and a touchdown. His third catch was for the touchdown on a 25-yard throw from Kyle Orton.
The Broncos were aided by a Bengals 15-yard penalty when Jonathan Fanene went after Kyle Orton's legs, drawing a flag for roughing the passer. Nate Clements picked up a penalty for a horse collar tackle on the touchdown play, which gives the Broncos an additional 15 yards on the kickoff.
The Broncos lead early in the third quarter, 17-3.
