Bengals vs. Lions: Takeaways from Cincinnati's 27-24 Victory over Detroit
Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

For the second consecutive week, the Cincinnati Bengals were able to win a game in dramatic fashion via a late field goal from Mike Nugent to finish a game 27-24.

This time the Bengals were on the road in Detroit and proved more than capable in the face of much adversity, including a swath of injuries that hobbled the roster.

While the Bengals allowed Matthew Stafford to go for over 300 yards passing, which is the first time the defense has allowed that to happen in 20 games, it was Andy Dalton and the offense that kept pace en route to a big win.

Cincinnati remains alone atop the AFC North at 5-2. Here's a look at the biggest takeaways from the impressive victory.
