    Mohamed Sanu leads Bengals air attack in Week 8 win

    Bengals wide receiver Mohamed Sanu served as Andy Dalton's primary option once again with A.J. Green sidelined Sunday, catching a team-high five passes on nine targets for 125 yards in Cincinnati's 27-24 win over Baltimore in Week 8. Sanu's highlight came on the first drive of the game, as the receiver executed a stab-and-grab on an overthrown ball to haul in a juggling catch before racking up yards after the catch en route to a 48-yard play. He also added 27 rushing yards on two carries, including a 26-yard scamper on a reverse from midfield. Sanu has 35 receptions for 533 yards and three touchdowns. The rest of the Bengals performed well with their limited chances in the passing game. Tight end Jermaine Gresham caught all four of his targets for 34 yards, Greg Little caught three of his five targets for 42 yards and Brandon Tate added two more catches for 30 yards, helping Andy Dalton to deliver an excellent 9.5 yards-per-attempt mark. The Bengals will face the Jaguars at home in Week 9.
