The Cincinnati Bengals were forced to settle for three points after quarterback Andy Dalton made a questionable and costly decision.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton faced a 3rd-and-15 play, but he had decided to run for it on the play. However, it seemed like Dalton had second thoughts about running.
The Bengals quarterback had run two yards past the line of scrimmage before throwing it, which drew a penalty flag since a quarterback cannot throw past the line of scrimmage.
This also cost the Bengals a down, so they settled for a field goal despite having great field position following a muffed punt return by the Cleveland Browns.
Here is a video from Vine of this horrible decision by Dalton.
