The build up between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals turned into three consecutive offensive drives where the Bengals scored twice and the Bills put together a scoring drive. After the Bengals took a 14-7 lead, the Bills could not get anything going for the rest of the half. They either punted or turned the ball over. If you compare their first offensive drive to the rest in the first half, it was two different stories and not for the best.

The Bengals would go into halftime with a 21-7 lead after the Bengals managed to score to make it a two-score game, and the Bills' offense continuing with their offensive struggles. The Bills came out of the second half better on defense, but the offense still struggled to get going early down by two touchdowns.

While the Bills managed to score in the fourth quarter and make it a six-point game, the Bengals ultimately would go on to win 24-18 and send the Bills to 5-4.

Here are the five takeaways from the Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals game.
