Cincinnati quarterback Carson Palmer is doing his best Tom Brady impersonation here this afternoon.
He just Laveranues Coles with an 8-yard scoring strike and the Bengals lead the Bears 28-0 with 2:49 left in the first half. Bernard was lined up in the backfield to Palmer's right on the play, but went in motion and set up split wide right. Palmer took the shotgun snap, hit Coles in the left flat and the 10-year veteran from Florida State got into the end zone.
Palmer is now 14 of 16 for 176 yards and four touchdowns.
