Ben­gals beat Dol­phins

Marysville Appeal-Democrat - - SPORTS -

Ben­gals re­ceiver A.J. Green fol­lowed his dis­ap­point­ing game with a dom­i­nat­ing one – 173 yards and a touch­down – and the Cincin­nati de­fense that was in­spired by Von­taze Bur­fict’s re­turn clamped down on the Mi­ami Dol­phins for a 22-7 victory Thurs­day night.

The Ben­gals (2-2) re­bounded from a 29-17 home loss to Den­ver on Sun­day with a solid al­laround game against a de­pleted team.

Green led the way, beat­ing the Dol­phins (1-3) on ev­ery type of route. He was up­set with him­self af­ter he dropped a piv­otal third-down pass and failed to make an im­pact against the Bron­cos.

Dur­ing the first three quar­ters, Green had 166 yards on catches while Mi­ami had 152 to­tal yards. The Ben­gals’ sea­son-long prob­lem of stalling out near the goal line forced them to set­tle for Mike Nu­gent’s sea­son-high five field goals.
