Cincinnati Bengals

Buffalo Bills

Frank Gore scored on a 1-yard run with 1:50 remaining in rallying the Buffalo Bills to a home-opening 21-17 victory over the winless Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

With two wins on the road to start their season, the Buffalo Bills will carry an unblemished record to New Era Field for Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The home opener should have a "lively atmosphere," said analyst Matt Sabuda with tongue-in-cheek understatement. While he favors the Bills over the winless Bengals, Sabuda warns it's "still a young season where little is really established."

Long-suffering Buffalo Bills fans displayed an outpouring of gratitude earlier this year for the man who helped the Bills end a 17-year playoff drought. Now, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and his wife Jordan are giving back in the form of a donation to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center.

This week's adopted favorite quarterback of Buffalo Bills fans is shouting back the love.

Four weeks of good feelings for Bills fans faded in the rain of Cincinnati in a 20-16 loss to the Bengals on Sunday. The defense, analyst Matt Sabuda says, played well enough to win, but the offense failed to capitalize on exceptional field position throughout the afternoon. With only 166 passing yards on Sunday, quarterback Tyrod Taylor remains "the most glaring deficiency for a team that seems much closer to success than most expected."


With a record of 3-1, the Buffalo Bills and their fans are enjoying a surprising perch atop the AFC East. While it's far too early to make bold predictions for the remainder of the season, analyst Matt Sabuda puts the Bills' strong start in perspective. During the team's 17-year playoff drought, the Bills have started a season at 3-1 or better only twice.


The Buffalo Bills defense stymied the Cincinnati Bengals for most of the second half in their 16-12 win on Sunday. The victory keeps the Bills playoff hopes alive, but analyst Matt Sabuda remains skeptical about the team's prospects.

LeSean McCoy ran 7 yards for a touchdown before suffering a thumb injury and the Buffalo Bills got just enough out of their depleted offense, beating the Cincinnati Bengals 16-12 on Sunday.

The NFL bye week provides coaching staffs with two weeks to prepare for an upcoming opponent. The Buffalo Bills, who are coming off their bye week, head to Cincinnati on Sunday to meet the Bengals, who last played on Monday night. With that timing in mind, analyst Matt Sabuda believes Sunday's game offers fans and team executives a chance to judge the efficiency and effectiveness of head coach Rex Ryan and his staff.


Quarterback Andy Dalton threw for three touchdown passes as the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Bills 34-21 Sunday. Analyst Matt Sabuda says the Bills defense is not living up to its reputation.

The Buffalo Bills head into Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with many key players, including Sammy Watkins, Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy, dealing with injuries. Analyst Matt Sabuda believes the Bills will need them, and more, to beat the undefeated Bengals.
