Cowboys vs. Bengals: Cincinnati has won four straight

The Cincinnati Bengals go into Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys red hot, winning their last four games.


The Cincinnati Bengals head into this Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys as one of the hottest teams in the NFL, winning their last four games.

In their victories over the New York Giants, Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers, the Bengals average margin of victory was more 17 points a game, with the Cincinnati offense playing a big role in that.

The Bengals offense has averaged over 28 points per game during their winning streak, with quarterback Andy Dalton, running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis and wide receiver A.J. Green leading the way.

After a shaky start to the season, Dalton has excelled during the winning streak, throwing for 850 yards and 10 touchdowns to just two interceptions. Dalton's first option has been Green, who is averaging more than 100 yards per game receiving with two touchdowns over the last four games.

Green-Ellis has thrived as the team's workhorse in the running game, sitting at 885 rushing yards on the year and averaging slightly fewer than 100 yards per game during Cincinnati's winning streak.

If the Cowboys want to keep Cincinnati's winning streak from going to five games, the Dallas defense will have to try to keep these three players in check
