Recap

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 316 yards and four touchdowns as the Buffalo Bills came from behind to earn their second straight victory 49-31 over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.

Steve Johnson finished with 137 yards receiving and three touchdowns and Fred Jackson added two rushing scores for the Bills (2-8), who had lost their first eight games of the season.

Cincinnati (2-8) built a 28-7 lead in the second quarter and led 31-14 at the half before Buffalo went to work. Fitzpatrick found Johnson with a 28-yard touchdown pass to cut it to 31-21 less than five minutes into the second half before the Bills started taking advantages of the Bengals’ mistakes, forcing a fumble that Drayton Florence recovered and returned 27 yards for a score less than a minute later.

Buffalo took the lead early in the fourth quarter after George Wilson intercepted Carson Palmer’s pass in the end zone and returned it into Cincinnati territory. Fitzpatrick turned that into the lead when he found Johnson again for an 11-yard score.

The Bills tacked on another score less than three minutes later after forcing a punt, when Fitzpatrick and Johnson again hooked up on a 32-yard touchdown.
