NFL Week 14 grades: Cowboys get an ‘A’ for pummeling Bengals, Giants get ‘D-‘ for no-show against Cardinals
Sometimes revenge is a dish best served cold and sometimes, it’s a dish best served with a side of Cincinnati chili. In his first game back to Cincinnati since being let go by the Bengals, Andy Dalton helped propel the Cowboys to a 30-7 win against the overmatched Bengals.
Although this was billed as Dalton’ revenge game, Dalton didn’t actually have to do any of the dirty work and that’s because the Cowboys defense got revenge on the Bengals for him.
The Cowboys forced a turnover on each of Cincinnati’s first three possessions and that was a big reason Dallas was able to roll to the win. The biggest play of the game came on Cincinnati’s second possession when Bengals running back Trayveon Williams lost the football on a butt-fumble! Not only was there a butt-fumble, but Aldon Smith ended up picking up the ball and running 78 yards for a touchdown to give Dallas an early 10-0 lead.
