Andy Dalton completed 19 of 27 passes for 328 yards and three touchdowns Sunday to lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a 38-31 win over Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.
The Bengals blew a 24-7 first-half lead, but two touchdown passes by Dalton in the fourth quarter made the difference. A 6-yard throw to tight end Jermaine Gresham broke a 24-24 tie, then Dalton hit Andrew Hawkins for a 59-yard score to give the Bengals a two-touchdown cushion with 7:08 left to play.
Griffin's 2-yard run cut the lead to 38-31 with 3:35 remaining, but he threw incomplete on a third-and-50 on the game's last play. Cincinnati's A.J. Green caught nine passes for a career-high 183 yards.
The Bengals improved to 2-1. The Redskins fell to 1-2.
