The Bengals (2-1) 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, and the Redskins fell to 1-2.

Cincinnati's A.J. Green caught nine passes for a career-high 183 yards.
