All the Bengals needed to do today was show up and take care of business against a Raiders team that was clearly ready to head back to California as soon as they stepped into Paul Brown Stadium. Cincinnati did just that as they thoroughly dominated the Raiders in ever way possible, jumping out to a 24-0 lead. The defensive line was dominant, lead by Geno Atkins who notched his 9th sack of the year on the Raiders’ first drive, passing Dan Wilkinson for club record for interior defensive lineman.
A.J. green failed to record a TD, ending his remarkable streak of 9 games with a TD. Andy Dalton did throw TDs as the Bengals picked up an easy 34-10 win and improved to 6-5 on the year.
We’ll have a full recap up shortly, but for now the Bengals are 6-5 and tied with the Steelers for one of the two Wild Card spots after they lost to the Browns.
