Bills 49, Bengals 31: Bills Explode All Over The Bengals

The Buffalo Bills started their Sunday off in about as abysmal a fashion as you can imagine. The team was sloppy and penalized often, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw two rapid-fire interceptions - one returned for a touchdown - and the Bills trailed the Cincinnati Bengals 28-7 in the second quarter.

By the time the game ended, the Bills had not only recorded their first 21-point comeback win since September 21, 1997, but also won the game by 18 points. A phenomenal second-half performance, which can be accurately described as equal parts Bills heart and Bengals shart, yielded 35 consecutive points to Buffalo. That erased a 31-14 Bengals halftime lead, and put the ice on a 49-31 victory for the now 2-8 Bills.

Buffalo has now won ten consecutive games against the Bengals, and have not lost to them since 1988.

Fitzpatrick, the former Bengal, finished the game with 316 passing yards and four touchdowns (along with the aforementioned picks) on 62 percent completions. Stevie Johnson had a career day, hauling in eight passes for 137 yards and three of those scores. Donald Jones also had a career day, with five receptions, 70 yards and a touchdown of his own. Fred Jackson rushed for 116 yards and two scores. Drayton Florence recovered a Cedric Benson fumble and returned it for a touchdown.

That might be the best half of football the Bills have ever played in the regular season, and it's certainly their best half of ball this season. I really don't need to write any more, because I know y'all are raring to talk about this one right away. Have at it, folks. This was AWESOME.
