Eifert scores three TDs in Bengals' win

CINCINNATI -- Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes to Tyler Eifert and played lead blocker on Mohamed Sanu's reverse Thursday night, keeping the Cincinnati Bengals unbeaten with a 31-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns.

The Bengals improved to 8-0 for the first time in franchise history, their longest winning streak within a season.

Coming off an emotional 16-10 victory in Pittsburgh on Sunday that gave them control of the AFC North, the Bengals dominated the Browns (2-7) and Johnny Manziel in the second half.

Manziel had some of his best moments in the opening half, which ended with Cincinnati up only 14-10. In the second half, the Browns managed only 32 yards and two first downs.

Dalton was 21 of 27 for 234 yards. Eifert's three touchdown catches gave him nine for the season, tying the club record for a tight end.
