09/21/2014 08:59 PM
The Bengals set a franchise record Sunday afternoon with their 11th straight regular season home win. Cincinnati rolled over the Titans to a 33-7 victory to move to 3-0.
Dalton became the first Bengals quarterback in franchise history to catch a touchdown pass Sunday. Yes, you read that right… catch a touchdown pass. Dalton caught the pass from wide receiver Mohammed Sanu, who is now 4-for-4 in his career throwing the ball. The other Bengals scores came from Jeremy Hill, two touchdowns for Giovani Bernard, a safety and a Mike Nugent field goal. A.J. Green had six receptions for 102 yards despite missing some of practice this week with a toe injury.
Dalton was 15-for-23 for 169 yards and a rating of 68.9. Bernard finished with 14 carries for 47 yards, while Hill had 39 yards on seven carries.
The Bengals defense was impressive, as well. They nearly held Tennessee scoreless until a Shonn Greene 1-yard touchdown with 6:09 to play. It would have been their first shutout in seven seasons, and first home shutout in 33 years.
3-0 is the best start for Cincinnati in eight years. They head into the bye week undefeated and preparing to come back healthy and ready to face the Patriots on the road in Week 5.
