It was so close for the Bills on Sunday. They had every chance for a comeback victory against Cincinnati. But when Tyrod Taylor was sacked, completed a pass for no gain and then in the final nail in the coffin, threw an interception to safety George Iloka with 2:14 remaining, the game was up and the Bengals ran out the clock for a 20-16 win.
For the Bengals, Wide receiver A.J. Green caught a 77-yard touchdown from QB Andy Dalton in the first quarter to get the team going. He had a great game and finished with seven catches for 189 yards and could have more but lost a fumble.
Dalton was 22-of-36 for 328 yards. He managed one touchdown and was caught with two interceptions. Bills safeties Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer had the picks.
It was funky game for the Bills, they managed only 221 yards as the Bengals had six sacks to go with Iloka’s interception. Defensive end Michael Johnson had two of Cincinnati’s sacks.
Tyrod Taylor went 20-of-37 for 166 yards with one interception and one touchdown. LeSean McCoy rushed for 63 yards on 19 carries.
Going into the fourth quarter the Bills led 13-10 to start, but Joe Mixon wiped that out and the Bengals took the lead for good on a 5-yard touchdown run only five seconds into the final period.
