Bengals finally get running game moving

CINCINNATI (AP) -- The Bengals' offense is developing into a lot more than just Dalton-to-Green, one of the main reasons they're back in the playoff chase.

Finally, they've figured out how to run the ball.

Cincinnati has won three lopsided games in a row largely because the running game has finally gotten in gear. After struggling to find running room for the first half of the season, BenJarvus Green-Ellis has put together 100-yard rushing games the last two weeks.

Green-Ellis ran for a season-high 129 yards during a 34-10 win over the Raiders on Sunday that included the two longest runs of his career -- 48 and 39 yards.

The Bengals (6-5) head to San Diego this weekend trying to stay in the mix for a playoff spot.
