Cincinnati (WKBW.com) How about that for a second win of the season? The Buffalo Bills battled back from a 21 point deficit to beat the Cincinnati Bengals 49-31 on Sunday. With the victory the Bills became the first team in NFL History to win a game by 18 points or more, when trailing by 17 or more at the Half.



The Bills trailed 31-14 at the half, before rallying for 35 unanswered points in the victory. Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick brushed off a brutal start to to throw three second half touchdowns, all to wide receiver Steve Johnson. Fitzpatrick finished 21-34 316 yards and 4 TD's on the day.



Johnson continued his breakout season, and finished with 8 catches for 137 yards and 3 TD's on the day. He also admits he'll likely hear from the NFL about his td celebration in third quarter. After hauling in a 28 yard TD grab from Fitzpatrick, Johnson pulled up his jersey to show the words "Why so serious?" written on his undershirt. A reference to the Joker in Batman and Robin, and a jab at the Bengals Terrell Owens and Chad Ochocinco who call themselves the dynamic duo.



Bills RB Fred Jackson also did his part on Sunday with 21 carries for 116 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
