Andy Dalton threw for over 300 yards in his second straight game and added five touchdowns, four of which went to Marvin Jones. The Bengals (6-2) have now won four straight and remain a perfect 4-0 at home.
The Jets (4-4) gave Dalton and the offense some un-needed help to start the game as a 34-yard pass interference call set the Bengals up inside the New York 10 yard line. That set up the first touchdown between the duo of Dalton and Jones as they hooked up for a nine-yard score.
Geno Smith was constantly harassed by the Bengals defense and it only took three plays before Geno Atkins picked up the first of four Bengals sacks. Eight plays later Dalton was back to picking apart the Jets defense as he ended the drive with a 4-yard TD toss to Jermaine Gresham.
New York's next drive lasted two plays longer than its first, but still ended with the same result, this time Reggie Nelson dropped Smith for the 11-yard loss. Dalton took little time to move the ball as he went deep to A.J. Green for a 53-yard strike. That drive stalled as the Bengals could not punch it in from the 2-yard line on fourth down.
The Jets were not able to get beyond their 20-yard line, but an interception by Dalton led to a 45-yard field goal to make it a 14-3 game. That's as close as they would get as Dalton tossed another touchdown to Jones for a 21-3 lead. New York did add another field goal before the half, but Jones and Dalton scored once more to make it 28-6 after two quarters.
The Jets first drive of the second half led to a touchdown, but it was to Chris Crocker who returned his interception 32 yards for the score and a 35-6 lead. New did eventually score in the third quarter on a 50-yard field goal, but it was countered with the fourth and final touchdown between Jones and Dalton.
Cincinnati scored for the final time in the fourth quarter when the Jets drive into Bengals' territory was ended abruptly by a 60-yard interception returned for a touchdown by Adam Jones.
That was it for the starting quarterbacks as Josh Johnson and Matt Simms took over. Simms attempted seven passes and was sacked by James Harrison. Johnson attempted no passes, but did run three times for 17 yards.
Cincinnati will have a short time to celebrate as it will hit the road for a Thursday night showdown with the Miami Dolphins (3-4). Miami is on the opposite end of the Bengals streak having lost four straight including a 27-17 loss to New England on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 8:25 p.m.
