The St. Louis Rams may be starting Kellen Clemens at quarterback today in place of injured starter Sam Bradford, but that hasn't stopped the Rams from taking a 6-3 lead into halftime on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals had the lead early in the game following a quality drive, but their offense has totally stagnated since then while the Rams offense showed some signs of life late in the second quarter.
The Bengals took the lead early in the first quarter while completing a 77-yard drive, but they've accumulated just 55 yards of total offense outside of that drive. It's not like the Rams have been much better on offense, though; both teams had exactly 132 total yards apiece in the first half. But St. Louis has been able to take advantage of good field position, getting close enough to allow kicker Josh Brown to knock a couple of field goals through the uprights.
Kellen Clemens was actually not that bad for the Rams in the first half, completing 9 of 15 passes for 82 yards in addition to being sacked once. The offensive numbers have been pretty underwhelming so far, but Bengals rookie wide receiver A.J. Green does have four catches for 94 yards so far today.
