Check out all of the in game action at MetLife Stadium as the Bengals Beat the Jets, 27-12.
The Bengals scored on four of their first five possessions, including an opening-drive TD, to build an early 20-6 lead. QB Joe Burrow had 95 passing yards on that initial drive, capped by a 12-yard TD throw to HB Samaje Perine on a third-and-goal. After a pair of Jets FGs, Cincinnati struck again on the final play of the first quarter when Burrow found WR Tyler Boyd over the middle, and Boyd spun off a hit and ran 45 yards to the end zone.
LB Logan Wilson grabbed the Bengals' first INT of the season in the second quarter, picking off a deep pass from Jets QB Joe Flacco and returning it 47 yards.
Cincinnati opened the second half with another TD, as a strip sack from DE Trey Hendrickson on the Jets' first possession set the Bengals up at the New York 24-yard line, and four plays later Burrow found WR Ja'Marr Chase alone in the end zone to make it 27-9.
Another forced fumble from Hendrickson with 10:03 left in the fourth quarter led to a 13-play, 52-yard Bengals drive that drained the clock. S Jessie Bates sealed the win with an INT in the final minute. Cincinnati improved to 1-2, while the Jets fell to 1-2.
