Raiders vs. Bengals score update: Early offense gives Cincinnati 14-0 lead

Jamie Squire

Looking to snap a three-game losing streak, the Oakland Raiders fell behind quickly on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Oakland Raiders have won just once on the road this season and their bid for road win No. 2 is off to a rough start, with the Cincinnati Bengals leading 14-0 after one quarter from Paul Brown Stadium.

Cincinnati got on the board less than six minutes into the game when Benjarvus Green-Ellis ran one yard for a touchdown to cap the Bengals' opening possession. The drive lasted just five plays and 2:19, covering 58 yards.

And while Oakland struggled on offense, picking up just two first downs in the opening quarter, Cincinnati added another touchdown on its next drive.

The second touchdown came through the air on a two-yard pass from quarterback Andy Dalton to Mohamed Sanu. That ended a nine-play, 88-yard drive with just over three minutes to play in the period.

Overall, Cincinnati has rushed for 70 yards, 65 coming from Green-Ellis. Dalton has completed 6-of-9 passes.

For Oakland, quarterback Carson Palmer had a brutal first quarter, throwing the ball five times and connecting just once. Marcel Reece has picked up 11 yards on three carries.
