In the final game of the Week 9 Sunday slate, the Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Buffalo Bills 24-18. The Bengals now improve to 5-3, while the Bills drop to 5-4.

Offensive spotlight: This could easily be quarterback Joe Burrow for his 300-yard passing performance, but we'll give the nod to wide receiver Tee Higgins, Burrow’s top receiver in the game. Higgins finished the game with 110 receiving yards on nine targets and eight catches. 

Defensive Spotlight: Bengals linebacker Germaine Pratt was all over the field in this game, notably forcing a fumble and a turnover. Pratt led the team with 11 combined tackles on the night.

Rookie spotlight: Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Dalton Kincaid led the team in target (11) and catches (10). His 81 receiving yards was second on the team in the contest. Unfortunately, he also had a lost fumble.
