Detroit (0-6) was unable to rally after closely contested defeats against San Francisco (Baltimore) and Minnesota. Austin Seibert’s 35-yard field goal in the middle of the fourth quarter gave Detroit a win.
First-year coach Dan Campbell has led the Lions to their only loss. The league’s longest running losing streak is 10 games.
Burrow was 19th of 29 and threw for 271 yard, which included a 24-yard touchdown to Chris Evans (rookie running back) on the game’s first drive. On fourth down, he threw a quick pass to Joe Mixon that was converted by the running back into a score of 40 yards on Cincinnati’s first possession. This gave Cincinnati a lead of 17 to 1. C.J. was the quarterback for second year. He threw a 2-yard touchdown. Uzomah scored the Bengals’ first touchdown of the fourth quarter, scoring 27 points.
Burrow did not throw an interception. However, the Lions were unable to capitalize as many times they had with this loss.
Jared Goff, who was 28 of 42, completed 202 yards for an average of less than 5 yards per completion with an intercept.
Goff threw a high pass when he was able to make contact with T.J. Hockenson for a touchdown. This occurred in the second quarter, which saw Detroit trailing 7-0. Detroit switched it on downs following the Bengals 38 play.
It was irrelevant that Goff, who had been acquired in the Matthew Stafford trade, started to throw more accurately by the time he left.
Goff made some connections during the drive, which was 13 plays and 75 yards long. Swift’s 2-yard run at 2:15 was the highlight. Goff converted a 2-point pass at Ford Field to reduce Detroit’s deficit by 23 points.
