This game really did have it all it what turned out to be an AFC thriller on Sunday afternoon as the Buffalo Bills (2-3) hosted the Cincinnati Bengals (3-2). Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton looked to turn the page on critics in Buffalo and definitely helped his case throwing the ball for 337 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 27-24 (OT) win against a feisty Thad Lewis and a tenacious Bills defense.
This game featured a speedy A.J. Green, a Gio Bernard touchdown, another goal line stand and even Mohammed Sanu playing quarterback. What this game didn’t feature was a costly turnover, or the Bengals’ shooting themselves in the foot. Not only did the Bengals have a goal line stand, but when they got the ball back they drove 98 yards for a touchdown.
Folks, this isn’t a Bengals team we’re used to seeing. 4-2 and all alone atop the AFC North is pretty sweet going into play the Detroit Lions this Sunday and the Bengals will absolutely have their work cut out for them in a very winnable game against Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson, assuming he plays.
