Recap


Bengals 34, Eagles 13: Andy Dalton threw for a touchdown and rushed for another as visiting Cincinnati took advantage of a slew of turnovers to score 24 unanswered points in a 3-minute, 26-second span.

A.J. Green reeled in his NFL-leading 11th touchdown reception and BenJarvus Green-Ellis had 106 yards and a score as the Bengals (8-6) temporarily moved past Pittsburgh and into the AFC's sixth playoff spot. The Steelers (7-6) will visit Dallas on Sunday before hosting the Bengals on Dec. 23.

A season-best five turnovers enabled Cincinnati to erase a 13-10 halftime deficit and cruise to its fifth win in six outings.

Cornerback Leon Hall's interception led to Dalton's 11-yard scoring scramble and rookie Bryce Brown's fourth fumble in as many starts was returned for a 25-yard touchdown by defensive end Wallace Gilberry.

Tight end Clay Harbor fumbled on the next offensive play, leading to Josh Brown's second field goal. Cedric Thornton capped the calamity by fumbling the ensuing kickoff as the bumbling Eagles (4-10) fell for the ninth time in 10 games.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Cincinnati's five turnovers were its most in a game since it recorded the same number against Baltimore in November 2007. ... Dalton's two fumbles during the second quarter doubled his season total. His initial fumble was Philadelphia's first turnover in 22 quarters. ... The Eagles had four sacks in the first half, which accounted for a season high in a game. They finished with six.
