Buffalo Bills improve to 3-0 after beating Bengals, 21-17 (full coverage)

The Buffalo Bills scored with under two minutes left to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals in front of a sold out New Era Field crowd for their first 3-0 start since 2011. The Bills led 14-0 at one point before a Bengals comeback put Buffalo down 17-14 late in the fourth. Josh Allen led the Bills from behind again and Frank Gore punched it in from the one to give Buffalo the 21-17 win.

PREVIEW:

A couple of AFC teams that both finished with six wins last year seem to be headed in opposite directions starting the 2019 season. The 2-0 Bills come home to face the 0-2 Cincinnati Bengals this week.

The Bills finally get to “defend their dirt” after the team established a franchise first with two straight wins on the road to start the season. They’ve won six of their last 10 home openers. But most importantly, Buffalo has a chance to start the season with a three-game winning streak. The last time the franchise did that was 2011.
