Cincinnati, OH (WBEN) The Buffalo Bills kept the game close but were unable to close the deal as they lost their second game of the season 20-16 to the Bengals in Cincinnati Sunday. The Bills’ defense was able to take away the ball three times from the Bengals but still gave up a few big plays and allowed Andy Dalton to pass for over 300 yards while receiver A.J. Green caught seven balls for 189 yards and a score.

On offense, the lack of a receiving threat such as Green hampered the Bills again. Last week they lost Jordan Matthews to a broken thumb and their pass catching depth took another hit against the Bengals as tight end, Charles Clay left the game with a knee injury and did not return. He was still being evaluated after the game. Tyrod Taylor finished the day with 166 yards passing including a second quarter touchdown to Brandon Tate. Following the game, Bills’ head coach, Sean McDermott said he has confidence in his receiving corps.

Running back, LeSean McCoy is being keyed on by the opposition and it is showed again as he was held in check, rushing for 63 yards and pulling in six balls for 26 yards.

Micah Hyde got yet another interception and Jordan Poyer also had a pick and a fumble return. Kicker Steven Hauschka continued his hot streak as well by connecting on three field goals on the day.

The Bills enter the bye week at 3-2 and will return to action in two weeks when they host Tampa Bay.
