ORCHARD PARK —
It was an unlikely performance by a relative unknown at quarterback against a defense that ended Tom Brady's consecutive-game touchdown streak at 52 in 13-6 win over New England last weekend. In its three previous wins this season, Cincinnati's defense limited Brady, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Pittsburgh's Ben Roethlisberger to a combined 64 of 118 for 692 yards, with two touchdowns and four interceptions.
And the Bills were playing minus their top receiving threat, Stevie Johnson (back injury). T.J. Graham had four catches for 74 yards, while Goodwin finished with two catches for 51 yards in his first game after missing four with a broken hand.
Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap had one of the team's five sacks, and also forced Lewis' fumble that was recovered by linebacker Vontaze Burfict to open the third quarter.
The Bengals got the ball first in overtime, and Dalton produced a 40-yard drive that ended at the Bills 37. Kevin Huber pinned the Bills back with a punt to Buffalo's 7.
The Bills went three-and-out. Brian Moorman hit a 51-yard punt from the goal line to Tate, who zigzagged across the middle of the field before being pushed out of bounds at the Bills 33.
The Bengals ran the ball three times before Nugent won it.
Dalton had his first three-touchdown game since he threw three in a 34-10 win against Oakland last Nov. 25.
AJ Green scored on an 18-yard reception. Running back Giovani Bernard scored on a 20-yard shovel pass, and Dalton's 10-yard touchdown to Marvin Jones came early in the third quarter.
Green finished with six catches for 103 yards receiving.
