Rex Ryan: Bengals have ‘lit up everybody in the league’
Count Bills coach Rex Ryan among those that are impressed with the weapons the Bengals have on offense.
Ryan praised Andy Dalton and company after Cincinnati’s 34-21 win in Buffalo on Sunday. He probably didn’t have much choice after they put up 17 straight points in both the first and second half.
"That team has lit up everybody in the league,” Ryan said via Pro Football Talk. “You take away this guy, take away that guy and this other dude beats you.”
Ryan and the Bills were successful in limiting Bengals star receiver A.J. Green to four catches and 36 yards but beyond that, he had several poisons to choose from. Marvin Jones had nine catches for a game-high 95 yards and a touchdown while upstart tight end Tyler Eifert also scored despite just four receptions and 30 yards. Running backs Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard also found the end zone.
"It’s crazy the talent that we have,” Jones said per the Cincinnati Enquirer. “It’s just fun, it makes it more exciting. You never know, game-in and game-out whose turn it’s going to be.”
Dalton has 14 touchdowns and two interceptions for Cincinnati, which is averaging 410.3 yards per game, third-best in the league. The Bengals will enter their bye week at 6-0 for the first time since 1988, the last time they made it to the Super Bowl. When they return, they’ll head to Pittsburgh for a huge AFC North clash with the 4-2 Steelers, who may have quarterback Ben Roethlisberger back from knee injury.
