BENGALS | Big day for Cincinnati offense in 31-17 win

10/23/2016 05:42 PM

The Bengals scored 31 points on Sunday, the most since putting up 37 against the Browns in December of last year. They set season highs in total offense and points scored on their way to a 31-17 victory of the Browns. The win puts the Bengals in second place in the AFC North, tied with the Ravens.

A strong run game to start the first half set the Bengals offense up for a big day, particularly Jeremy Hill, Andy Dalton and AJ Green. Hill had a 74-yard touchdown run and recorded his first 100-yard rushing game since the final game of his rookie season in 2014. Andy Dalton finished the day with 308 passing yards, and two over forty-yard touchdown passes. But, the play of the game certainly went to A.J. Green. The Bengals receiver made a spectacular catch on a 48-yard Hail Mary touchdown pass. Green tipped the ball to himself and pulled it in with one hand, all with four Browns defenders surrounding him.

Next for the Bengals is a trip to London to play the Redskins. The team will leave to go overseas on Thursday night before their Sunday game.
