CINCINNATI (AP) — Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes and the Cincinnati Bengals showed their former franchise quarterback that they’ve moved on without him, beating Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders 34-10 on Sunday.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown against the NFL’s most generous defense. He had runs of 48 and 39 yards — the longest of his career — to set up scores.
Palmer had a tough time all-around in his return to Cincinnati, going 19 of 34 for 146 yards with four sacks and an interception.
With their third straight win, the Bengals (6-5) moved back into the playoff chase.
A brawl in the fourth quarter resulted in Oakland’s Tommy Kelly and Lamarr Hunt and Cincinnati’s Andrew Whitworth getting ejected.
Oakland (3-8) has lost a season-high four straight games, giving up 169 points in the process.
