“We got significant playing time, so that was cool,” Gino Gradkowski said. “I felt pretty good out there. They have a good front. We'll evaluate the film and see how I did.”
Allen finds end zone
Reserve running back Anthony Allen has provided key blocks all season for Pro Bowl kick returner Jacoby Jones.
Allen got to step out of his good-soldier role for a bit Sunday, scoring his first NFL touchdown on a 2-yard plunge off left tackle one play after a career-long 20-yard run.
His reaction to the score was tame.
“I was too tired to celebrate,” Allen said. “I thought about celebrating and then I thought I got to get on this kickoff the next play.”
Cody fearing fine
Nose tackle Terrence Cody is bracing for a fine from the NFL later this week due to his roughing the passer penalty stemming from a late hit on Gradkowski.
The flag gave the Bengals a first down on a drive capped with a field goal.
“At first, I didn't think I hit him with the crown of my helmet,” Cody said. “I came up with my elbow first. I kind of messed up the whole drive and gave them three points. It was a bad hit. I'll be looking for that fine letter from the NFL.”
