Cross off another thing in what the Bengals haven’t been able to do. In one of the most complete games of the Marvin Lewis era, the Bengals throttled the Jets 49-9 at Paul Brown Stadium for their fourth straight win. It is also the second time that the Bengals are 6-2 at the midpoint of the season. Andy Dalton passed for a career-high five touchdowns, Marvin Jones caught a club-record four and the defense had two Pick Sixes as Lewis got his first win in four attempts against Rex Ryan. Even special teams got into the act as Brandon Tate had a 71-yard kick return to set up a late first-half touchdown. The 49 points are the most the Bengals have scored since a 58-48 win over Cleveland in 2009 with the margin of 40 being the largest of Lewis’ 11 seasons as head coach. The Bengals have also won their first four home games for the first time since 1988, which is also the last time the franchise appeared in the Super Bowl. The Jets (4-5) were held to three Nick Folk field goals, marking the second time this season the Bengals have held an opponent without a touchdown.
