Usually the fourth quarter is where all the action is,unless it’s the Cincinnati Bengals this past Sunday and they’re already up 42-9 going into it. In probably the most complete game the Bengals have played in a very long time, the only highlight of the fourth quarter was New York Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith throwing his second pick six,this time to the hands of Adam Jones, who baited Smith by playing off of the intended receiver.
This play, in turn, helped Josh Johnson and several other second and third string guys get some much needed on the field experience, as it was obvious the night was now over for Andy Dalton and the high-powered Bengals offense. How monumental is this victory?
Well,to put it into perspective,the last time the Bengals won by a margin of 40 points or more was in 1989 against Jerry Glanville and the Houston Oilers when the Bengals put up 61 points to the Oilers 7. The sky is the limit if the Bengals keep playing at this pace,and a 49-9 win over an up and coming 4-3 Jets team is definitely a statement.
