OT field goal gives Bengals first road win

10/14/2013 09:01 AM

Sunday was the first of a stretch of road games for the Cincinnati Bengals as they’ll play three of the next four away from Paul Brown Stadium. A Mike Nugent 43-yard field goal with 6:44 remaining in overtime sealed the win in Buffalo after giving up a two-touchdown third quarter lead.

Andy Dalton ended his two game touchdown drought by throwing for three TDs and going 26 of 40 for 337 yards, his career best for a road game. The three touchdowns included an 18-yard catch by AJ Green, a 20-yard shovel pass to Gio Bernard and a 10-yard catch by Marvin Jones.

With losses by both Baltimore and Cleveland, Cincinnati now has sole possession of first place in the AFC North by one game. The 4-2 Bengals will head to Detroit next Sunday to take on the Lions.
