Bengals out on a losing streak against Raiders still in a tailspin


Joe Mixon rushed for 123 yards and scored two touchdowns and the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Las Vegas Raiders 32-13 on Sunday.

The Bengals (6-4) came off their bye week and snapped a two-game losing streak to return to the fight in the AFC North Division, while the Raiders (5-5) suffered their third consecutive loss since their off week, when they were the leaders of the AL West.

Joe Burrow hit 20 of 29 passes for 148 yards and threw a touchdown for Cincinnati, while Offensive Rookie of the Year award nominee Ja’Marr Chase caught three passes, one of them for touchdown. Chase leads among rookies with eight touchdowns this season.

Bengals kicker Evan McPherson became the 13th player with three field goals of 50 yards or more in a single game. McPherson finished with four field goals.

Meanwhile, the Cincinnati defense limited the Raiders to 278 yards, the second time the Bengals have stopped an opponent by less than 300 yards in a game. It was the lowest total in Las Vegas this season.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr finished with 19 of 27 passes for 215 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Tight end Darren Waller caught seven passes for 116 yards, and backup Foster Moreau’s only catch was 19 yards for a touchdown.
