The New York Jets were riding a three-game winning streaking heading into Sunday's match up on the road against the win less Cincinnati Bengals.

Cincinnati would start Andy Dalton once again in this game after benching him for the last three games in favor of rookie quarterback Ryan Finley. Dalton completed 22-of-37 passes for 242 yards and one touchdown. He also rushed for -4 yards on five carries in a 22-6 win over New York.

This was Zac Taylor's first ever win as head coach of this football team.

Andy Dalton now has the most passing touchdowns in franchise history with 198. This was a huge moment for him.

He threw his lone touchdown pass of the game in the first-quarter when they were trailing 3-0. Dalton threw a 17-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Boyd.

Boyd finished with five receptions for 59 yards receiving and a touchdown.

Auden Tate was the leading receiver for the Bengals with four receptions for 66 yards receiving.

With Cincinnati leading 10-3 in the second-quarter, Joe Mixon scored on a 5-yard rushing touchdown. He finished with 44 yards on 19 carries. Mixon also caught four passes for 26 yards receiving.

With the Cincinnati Bengals leading 17-6 in the third-quarter, Kelvin Beachum was called for offensive holding in the end zone and Cincinnati scored on a safety to go up 19-6.

Randy Bullock made two field goals in this game for the Bengals. He made one from 24 yards out in the second-quarter and he also made one from 47 yards out in the third-quarter.

Sam Ficken made a 42-yard field goal in the first-quarter for the Jets and he also made one from 39 yards in the second-quarter.

Sam Darnold completed 28-of-48 passes for 239 yards for New York. He also rushed for nine yards on two carries.

Le'Veon Bell was the leading rusher in this game for the New York Jets. He rushed for 32 yards on 10 carries. Bell also caught four passes for 35 yards receiving.

Robby Anderson was the leading receiver for New York with seven receptions for 101 yards receiving.

This is a typical Jets loss. They have had these kind of losses in the past.

At the moment, the Bengals currently hold the number one pick in the NFL Draft. If they win at least one more game this season and if the New York Giants (2-10) lose out, New York would hold the number one pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The New York Jets (4-8) will host the Miami Dolphins (3-10) next Sunday.

The Cincinnati Bengals (1-11) will be on the road against the Cleveland Browns (5-7) next Sunday.
