Bengals 34, Bills 21

Bengals mix it up too well for Bills' D

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — With A.J. Green attracting much of the Bills' attention, Bengals receiver Marvin Jones made a suggestion to quarterback Andy Dalton to open the third quarter.

"I told Andy to just throw it because I'm go to run and get it," Jones said of his 42-yard, over-the-shoulder catch that set up his 10-yard touchdown on Cincinnati's first drive of the second half.

The Bengals, at 6-0, matched their best start ever, in 1975 and 1988.

With Green covered, Dalton turned his attention elsewhere in throwing touchdowns to Jones, Tyler Eifert and Jeremy Hill. Giovani Bernard also scored on a 17-yard run.

Jones had a team-leading and career-best nine catches and 95 yards and Dalton went 22-of-33 for 243 yards.

"You never know who's going to have a big week," Dalton said. "(Sunday), Marvin had a bunch of catches. It's nice to have the ability to spread it around."
