    After a Big victory agaisnt division rival Ravens, the bengals had a big task at hand, going on the road to take on the 3-0 bills. After the ravens game, the bengals knew the formula to thier success, limit turnovers and be opportunistic when the time comes to strike.

    The beginnig of the game was tough fought, the bengals were unable to sustain drives for the 4th game of the season in a row, and the bills were able to string together first down after first down and control all aspects of the game for the most part, even ground attack and efficient passing.

    the halftime score was 17-0 and coach hagen is notorius for building teams that fight with a lead, not trying to come back, especially when unable to get the other team off the field.

    then, something happened, Peyton manning, 3 steps away from keeling over with old age, took over and lead the bengals to storm back, and the defense started to step up. after the 3rd quarter though, the game was at 17-7 in the bills favor.

    the fourth quarter however is when the bengals seem to shine the most this season, and rallied around petyon and the defense. the key point in the game was after peyton tied the game up with a TD strike to rookie TE Mike Hansel, the bills threw their first interception of the season, as it was returned by reggie nelson close to the endzone. right after the 2 minute warning the bengals scored to go up 21-7.

    after the bills took back over on offense, lightning struck twice as linebacker james anderson had a 35 yard pick 6 to seal the deal

    the game was almost out of hand and then the bengals bengaled(?) to come back and win

    key stats

    20 yards rushing
    0 turnovers
    214 offensive yards

    265 offensive yards
    2 turnovers

    in my mind the entire game was balanced and no one player stood out

    Good game tyler, and good luck the rest of the way
