NFL Week 5: Bengals’ top plays from win over Bills

New, comment

Cincinnati started really well with a huge bomb from Dalton to Green. What were the other top plays from the win over the Bills?

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals almost gave up a game they should never drop, but they turned things around at the end of the third quarter and managed to secure their second win a row after starting the season 0-3.

Their superstar wide receiver, A.J. Green, turned the ball over twice - one was a pass he should have caught but went for an interception instead, but he also had 189 yards and a touchdown in seven catches.

Andy Dalton had a costly pick in the second quarter, but other than that, he was alright, as was the defense, that against a team with few weapons, if any, brought the hit with six sacks and a game-ending interception.

A.J. Green’s 77-yard touchdown catch: rookie cornerback Tre’Davious White is still looking for Green. After punting in their first drive this was a great follow up for the Bengals and fans thought they would repeat their Week 4 performance...

Geno Atkins’ sack on third down in the first quarter: after the bomb to Green were putting on a nice little drive to try to tie the game, until Geno Sacks said it was enough.

Joe Mixon showing what he can do: if you’ve never watched Mixon play and wonder why he’s compared with Le’Veon Bell, check out this play. Maybe Marvin Lewis will do it too.

Atkins force the Bills to punt, again: the Bengals were up 10-3 and were set to get the ball back with almost five minutes left in the half, a great opportunity to score again and go to the locker room in clear control of the game. Right?

C.J. Uzomah’s 21-yard catch in the third quarter: that’s how you use a fullback in the NFL nowadays. That’s probably the first play in two years that they got a good gain when going with the I formation.

Green’s 48-yard catch at the end of the third quarter: what a way to redeem himself after his fumble in the previous drive had allowed the Bills to score and take the lead.

Mixon’s first career touchdown to retake the lead: following that Green catch, the Bengals went with their rookie running back and he delivered.

Carl Lawson’s sack after a previous penalty negated a third-down stop: the rookie made a rookie mistake a bit earlier but forced the Bills to punt with a huge sack on third down afterwards.
