Cincinnati started the game red-hot, but became rather sluggish in the second quarter and the beginning of the third quarter.
However, thanks to the defense creating turnovers and the offense being able to capitalize on the Eagles mistakes, this contest quickly turned into a rout in Cincinnati's favor.

Grades for players and positional units are based upon the criteria listed below.
An "A" grade is granted to a player that far surpasses the expectations set out for him during the game. This player will absolutely be a key factor to the success of his team.
A "B" grade will be given to a player that plays at an above-average level and that contributes throughout the game with very few mistakes.
A "C" grade is handed to a player that has an average game. He may not put up gaudy numbers or be a major contributor, but he will not be the main cause for certain team failures.
A "D" grade will be granted to a player that plays below his ability level. This player would have seen better days on the field and would most likely want a do-over for his performance.
An "F" grade will stick to a player that fails at all levels during a game. He may even be one key factor to a team's struggles, or even their loss.
