Bengals grind down Rams 20-13

< Previous Page

Green got behind two safeties on what might have been busted coverage on a 55-yard reception to the 2 to set up a field goal for the game’s first score, not long after Eugene Sims was called for roughing the passer call and keeping a drive alive.

Brown missed a 45-yard attempt, but connected from 26 and 43 yards late in the first half to give the Rams a 6-3 lead. The first field goal was set up on rookie Robert Quinn partially blocked punt, which resulted in a 21-yarder to the Bengals 39.

Quinn, the Rams’ first-round pick, has three blocked punts — one shy of the franchise record for a single season. He also has five sacks. Notes: Rams DE Chris Long got his 13th sack, which matches his Hall of Fame father Howie’s top season total in 1983. ... Tate has five punt returns of 20 or more yards. ... Steven Jackson had 71 yards on 18 carries, leaving him 34 yards shy of a seventh consecutive 1,000-yard season. Benson had 76 yards on 22 carries and needs 41 yards for his third career 1,000-yard season.
