The Bengals lead the NFL with 7 touchdowns on the opening drive. They scored on the game’s opening drive vs. the Eagles on a 4th-and-goal BenJarvus Green-Ellis run from the 1-yard line.
Speaking of Green-Ellis, the Bengals are 6-0 when the former New England Patriot carries the ball at least 19 times.
Trailing 13-10, the Bengals erupted for 24-straight points in just three minutes and 39 seconds of play between the third and fourth quarters.
Andy Dalton completed just 6 passes to Bengals receivers last night, all of which were to A.J. Green. The other 7 went to TE Jermaine Gresham (6) and RB Brian Leonard (1).
Eagles RB Bryce Brown had rushed for 347 yards in his first two career NFL starts, but has totaled just 40 yards in the past two games vs. the Buccaneers (6) and Bengals (34).
31 of the Bengals 34 points scored last night came off turnovers forced by the defense.
The Bengals defense held the Eagles offense to just 2 first downs in the second-half, and one of them was an unnecessary roughness penalty on DE Carlos Dunlap.
Cincinnati kept Philadelphia from scoring in the second-half last night. It was only the third time the Bengals defense has recorded a second-half shutout this year. The other of which came in Week 11 vs. the Chiefs and again in Week 13 vs. the Chargers. All three came on the road.
Last night’s 34-13 victory was the Bengals first win in a primetime road game since they beat Pittsburgh, 27-9, in 1995. They had lost seven straight road primetime games.
