Bengals overcome turnovers to beat Bills 20-16

09 October 2017

Green got the fireworks started when he burned Bill rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White for a 77-yard touchdown on Cincinnati's second possession of the game.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor finished 20-of-37 for 166 yards and a touchdown. But the Bills run game was shut down by Cincinnati's stout defensive front and their passing game was just too inconsistent. The Bills promptly threw it in the air five times on the drive ending with Tate's touchdown on a day he made his first catch of the season. In Week 5, it found ways to hit big plays against a Bill defense that has been hard to move the ball on. In the end it cost them in a 20-16 loss to the Bengals.

The Bills' defense continues to take advantage of tipped balls and secure interceptions while rallying to the football to jar it loose.

ABOUT THE BENGALS (1-3): Cincinnati's offense has been much better in two games since Bill Lazor took over as offensive coordinator, and quarterback Andy Dalton, in particular, has looked more comfortable. It was the first time in his career he'd averaged less than 10 yards per reception. Cincinnati is 3rd overall allowing 273 yards per game and tied for for third in sacks with 12.

Micah Hyde recorded his 4th interception on the year, a league leading stat, while Jordan Poyer had an interception and a fumble recovery.

-A 40-yard punt return by Brandon Tate helped to put Buffalo in the red zone.
