The Bengals look to get back to their winning ways with a win in San Francisco on Sunday. This was a game that was to be played on Sunday night, but was moved to the late afternoon due to the poor play of the 49ers. AJ McCarron gets a bit of a break this week facing a defense that has not played well recently. Let's see what Tecmo thinks will happen this weekend.
The 49ers start with the football and promptly catch the Bengals sleeping. A couple deep passes and the Bengals are looking at a 7 point deficit. Blaine Gabbert finds Torrey Smith for the touchdown.
The San Francisco defense pins their ears back to try and rattle the Bengals young quarterback. Quinton Dial takes McCarron down for the sack.
The Bengals turn to the run game to move the ball and Jeremy Hill delivers with a couple of first downs.
The drive ultimately stalls and the Bengals settle for a field goal try.
San Francisco continues to move the ball easily against this Bengals defense.
Gabbert finds Smith again for the touchdown.
At the end of the first quarter, the Bengals are losing 14 - 3.
Again, the Bengals lean on Hill to move the chains.
After a strong dose of the running game, McCarron fires a pass to Ryan Hewitt for a score.
The 49ers have the easy answer. Shaun Draughn does the heavy lifting to get the team to the 1.
Kendall Gaskins does the rest and easily pushes in for the score.
At the half the shell shocked Bengals are looking at a 21 - 10 score not in their favor.
Again the Bengals lean on Hill who is having a great day running the ball so far.
Navarro Bowman and the niners defense continues to pressure McCarron.
But, McCarron then finds A.J. Green for a touchdown to keep the Bengals competitive.
The Niners' drive stalls and they are forced to punt to the Bengals.
After a steady dose of running the ball, the Bengals catch the 49ers corners napping and Marvin Jones breaks free for the long gain.
Jeremy Hill easily does the rest and punches the football across the goal line.
At the end of the third, the Bengals have the lead 24 - 21.
San Francisco gains some momentum and moves the ball into an easy chip shot field goal range.
The next play Gabbert makes a mistake and the Bengals pick the ball off.
Again, McCarron finds Jones for a long gain.
Then Green seals the win with a late touchdown grab to end the drive.
The Bengals started horribly but then shook off the jet lag and shut the 49ers out in the second half for a 10 point road win. WhoDey!
