Raiders vs. Bengals final score: Cincinnati disposes of Oakland, 34-10

Andy Lyons

The Bengals jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, taking care of the Raiders, 34-10.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown as the Cincinnati Bengals picked up the home victory over the Oakland Raiders, 34-10, Sunday afternoon at Paul Brown Stadium.

With the win, Cincinnati improves to 6-5, and Oakland drops to 3-8.

Green-Ellis set the tone early in this one with a one-yard touchdown run just under six minutes in. The Bengals tacked on two more touchdowns and a field goal in a dominant first half that sent Cincinnati to the locker room up, 24-0.

Mohamed Sanu caught two touchdown passes in the opening 30 minutes, both from quarterback Andy Dalton.

Down 24-0, Oakland showed signs of life in the third quarter. First, Sebastian Janikowski knocked in a 55-yard field goal to make it 24-3. Then, Denarius Moore caught a 20-yard pass from Carson Palmer to bring the Raiders within two touchdowns.

It didn't make a difference. Cincinnati scored 10 more points in the fourth quarter to pull away, highlighted by a Jermaine Gresham seven-yard touchdown reception with 3:46 to go. Nugent also added his second field goal of the game in the final quarter.

Fantasy studs and duds

Green-Ellis had an excellent afternoon. He rushed for the first touchdown of the game and never looked back, compiling 129 yards on 19 carries.

Palmer, meanwhile, did not put up his best numbers. He was 19 of 34 for one touchdown and an interception, averaging just 4.3 yards per throw.

Injury report

No big injuries to report in this one, thankfully. Cincinnati's Leon Hall appeared to have injured his finger early on, but was able to return to the game.

But did they cover?

The Bengals opened as six-point favorites and covered easily.
