Cincinnati forced five turnovers, including four in the second half, and the Bengals beat the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-13, in Philadelphia on Thursday night. Quarterback Andy Dalton passed for one touchdown and ran for another score for Cincinnati (8-6). Philadelphia (4-10) sacked Dalton six times, but could not overcome the flurry of second-half turnovers.

Trailing 13-10 at halftime, the Bengals began their comeback when cornerback Leon Hall intercepted Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles with 5:44 left in the third quarter. Dalton then led Cincinnati downfield, punctuating the 40-yard drive with an 11-yard TD run.

On the second play of the ensuing drive, Bengals’ defensive end Wallace Gilberry recovered a fumble by Foles and returned it 25 yards for a score. Eagles’ tight end Cla Harbor fumbled on the next Philadelphia drive, leading to a 32-yard field goal by Josh Brown and a 27-13 Bengals’ lead. Eagles’ kick returner Cedric Thornton fumbled the ensuing kickoff, leading to Dalton’s 5-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green with 12:47 to play.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis carried 25 times for 106 yards and a score for Cincinnati. Foles finished with 182 passing yards, a touchdown and an interception for Philadelphia.
