The Cincinnati Bengals beat down the St. Louis Rams 31-7 on Sunday, Nov. 29 at Paul Brown Stadium. The Bengals have improved to 9-2 and are still first in their division, AFC North. The Rams have fallen to 4-7 and remain in third place in NFC West.
Next Sunday, the Bengals will travel to Cleveland to play their division rivals, the Browns, who are 2-8.
The Rams will be playing next Sunday in Arizona against Carson Palmer and the Cardinals who beat the 49ers today. Arizona stands at 9-2.
Cincinnati’s quarterback Andy Dalton threw for 233 yards that game. He completed 20 out of 27 passes, scored three touchdowns and once interception.
Jeremy Hill was Cincinnati’s main running back that game. Hill ran the ball 16 times for 86 yards with his longest carry of the day a 15-yard run.
A.J. Green led Cincinnati in rushing. Green caught six passes for 61 yards and two touchdowns. His longest catch of the day came from a 18 yard touchdown.
Nick Foles, quarterback for St. Louis, completed 30 out of 46 passes for a total of 228 yards and had three interceptions.
Former West Virginia Mountaineer Tavon Austin led the team in rushing against the Bengals. Austin ran the ball four times for 63 yards. His longest carry being a 60-yard run.
Kenny Britt led the Rams in receiving. Britt caught six passes for a total of 63 yards with his longest reception of the day from an 18-yard pass.
The Bengals looked back on track this game. They went through a brief slump, losing to the Texans and Cardinals in back-to-back games. But they played like themselves again. The Rams just came off a sloppy win to the Ravens. That game was BAD. It was painful to watch and it seemed to just lag on. The Bengals have a good shot in the playoffs. With so much talent on this Rams roster, it’s hard to believe their record.
