Cincinnati Bengals vs. Atlanta Falcons Recap
September 14, 2014
Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard was "Mr. Do It All" this week as he totally carried the Bengals offense, rushing for 90 yards and 1 touchdown on 27 carries, and also picking up 79 receiving yards on 5 receptions. He definitely answered the question of how the Bengals were going to replace injured receiver AJ Green this week.
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan put up comparable numbers to Bengals QB Andy Dalton, but unfortunately Ryan didn't have the help in the rushing department that Dalton did, thus resulting in an Atlanta Falcons loss, moving them to 1-1 on the season.
