Dalton, Green lift Bengals past Bills

Share

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed 22-of-36 passes for 328 yards, with 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions in Sunday's win over the Buffalo Bills. Randy Bullock was good from 30 yards out to put the Bengals up 10-3 with nine minutes left in the first half. Green got the fireworks started when he burned Bill rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White for a 77-yard touchdown on Cincinnati's second possession of the game.

The Bengals and Bills met in Cincinnati for a game with a better finish than most anticipated. He had two catches for 31 yards before exiting and was replaced by Nick O'Leary.

The Buffalo Bills, under Sean McDermott, have become a turnover machine and they're adding to that resume today.

Tyrod Taylor #5 of the Buffalo Bills slips away from Carlos Dunlap #96 of the Cincinnati Bengals during the third quarter at Paul Brown Stadium on November 20, 2016 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Green redeemed himself with a 49-yard catch to set up running back Joe Mixon's first career touchdown run, giving the Bengals a 17-13 lead early in the fourth quarter.

Green's impact on the outcome is what's expected from top-tier receivers; Green proved he is still capable of dictating to defenses.

Buffalo is 16 -12 all-time against the Bengals in the regular season and 0-2 against them in the postseason. The Bengals have at least one sack in a league-leading 34 straight games.
