After struggling the last two weeks, Bengals tight end Jermaine Gresham came through when it counted.
The second-year player, who was held without a catch in the first half, had four receptions for 70 yards in the second half as the Bengals rallied for a 23-20 win over Buffalo on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium.
“In the second half we just had to play within the offense and do our part to help the defense out. We had to play smart,” Gresham said.
Gresham didn’t get his first catch until six minutes into the third quarter for an 11-yard gain on the first play of the Bengals second drive of the second half. Six plays later, he got perfect position on Buffalo safety George Wilson and caught it one-handed in the left corner of the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown.
It marked the first time in seven quarters that the Bengals had scored a touchdown.
Said Gresham of the touchdown: “It was a ball placed very, very well by Andy (Dalton) and it worked out well.”
On the game-tying drive, Dalton bo...

The Bengals turned the tables on the Buffalo Bills today, overcoming a 14 point deficit in the second half to defeat the previously-unbeaten Bills, 23-20. Bengals QB Andy Dalton shook off two first half interceptions (including one that was returned for a touchdown) to lead 4 second-half scoring drives, including the game winner culminated by [...]
According to SportsInteraction.com, the Bengals are 3.5-point underdogs heading into this afternoon’s home game with the 3-0 Bills. There is some sentiment that this could be a trap game for Buffalo, but that will require significant more offense than the Bengals created against San Francisco. I expect the Bengals defense to show up and the [...]
Andy Dalton doesn't have the strongest arm. He's not the fastest runner. In his first four NFL games, he has shown a lot of resolve.
The Bengals rookie quarterback orchestrated his first NFL game-winning drive on Sunday, leading Cincinnati to a 23-20 victory over previously unbeaten Buffalo. Dalton scored the tying touchdown on a 3-yard run, then kept the winning drive alive...
I’m not sure what Thomas Howard ever did to get into the doghouse in Oakland last year but the Bengals are more than glad he’s with them now.
The outside linebacker (who I profiled a couple of weeks ago) was a major player in Sunday’s 23-20 win against Buffalo. He was credited with six tackles but was all over the field as part of the scheme against a wide array of spread formations...
Can you believe that 25% of the season is already over? The Bengals, who have been in each game in the 4th quarter, could just as easily be 4-0 and 0-4, but they come out of it 2-2. Andy Dalton has looked at times like the old Carson Palmer and at times like David Klingler [...]
While Marvin Lewis was bound and determined to move past Sunday’s 23-20 win against Buffalo and on to next Sunday’s game at Jacksonville — and he was very determined to do that today — we’re not quite ready to start talking Jaguars yet. There will be plenty of time for that the rest of the week.
Some items from Monday and a couple of Sunday leftovers.

The kings of comebacks finally lost because they couldn't do something much easier -- hold a late lead against a struggling team. Up by two touchdowns, the previously undefeated Bills came apart. Rookie Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton led his first NFL comeback, setting up Mike Nugent's 43-yard field goal as time ran out for a 23-20 victory Sunday in front of the smallest crowd in Paul...
The Bills' stretch of amazing comebacks ended when they couldn't stop a rookie quarterback from pulling off one of his own.
Andy Dalton shook off a horrid first half and led his first game-winning drive in the NFL on Sunday.
Mike Nugent's 43-yard field goal as time ran out gave the Cincinnati Bengals a 23-20 victory over the previously unbeaten Bills in front of the...
