Bengals 34, Raiders 10

Bengals stay hot; Raiders' skid at 4

CINCINNATI — Andy Dalton threw for three touchdowns for the Bengals and BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown against the league's most generous defense.

Green-Ellis had runs of 48 and 39 yards — the longest of his career — to set up scores as Cincinnati won its third straight.

Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer, returning to Cincinnati for the first time since he was traded last year, was 19-of-34 for 146 yards with four sacks and an interception. He was booed by the smallest crowd of the season at Paul Brown Stadium (56,503). "You obviously hear it," he said.

Oakland has lost four straight, giving up 169 points. "I'm just really tired of losing," safety Mike Mitchell said. "It's going from anger to sadness to … I don't know."

During a fourth-quarter fight, Oakland defensive tackle Tommy Kelly and end Lamarr Houston ended up on top of Cincinnati offensive lineman Andrew Whitworth. They all were ejected. "They were probably looking for a fight because they weren't doing much on the field," Whitworth said.
