ProFootballFocus.com: The Bengals showed everything that’s made them one of the favorites in the AFC with the added bonus of stellar play from quarterback Andy Dalton and the continued emergence of WRMarvin Jones as the clear No. 2 option to WRA.J. Green. Jones caught four of Dalton’s career-high five touchdown passes as the Jets simply had no answer for the second-year receiver. With the win, the Bengals move to 6-2 with full control over the AFC North.
Peter King, MMQB: 7. Cincinnati (6-2). The win over the Jets was one of the most surprising results of this season—not the win or loss, but the 40-point margin against one of the surprise teams of the season.
Offensive Player of the Week
Andy Dalton, quarterback, Cincinnati. Understand that before this season, he had doubters (not disbelievers, mind you, but doubters) everywhere—inside his organization, in his own locker room, and all around Cincinnati. He went a very long way toward dispelling them Sunday against a professional defense run by Rex Ryan and the playoff-threatening Jets. He completed 19 of 30 passes for 325 yards and five touchdowns. Four went to the uber-confident Marvin Jones, proving this isn’t a one-wideout team.
Coach of the Week
Mike Zimmer, defensive coordinator, Cincinnati. The Jets had the ball 13 times Sunday. On nine drives, they were held to 15 yards or less. Any owner out there listening? It’s long overdue that Zimmer get a legitimate interview for a head-coaching job. With another stifling defensive performance in Cincinnati’s 49-9 win over New York, maybe he’ll get his shot after the season in one of those places with a coach having a bad year.
Geoff Hobson, Bengals.com: The enormity of what the Bengals had just done Sunday at sold-out Paul Brown Stadium against a Rex Ryan defense seemed to hit the X-and-O men before everybody else.
Dan Hoard, Bengals.com: It was the Bengals most dominant all-around performance in the Andy Dalton/A.J. Green era.
Joe Reedy, Enquirer: The Bengals needed a game like this, especially with a short week and Miami coming up. Marvin Jones continues to show a wide variety of range in routes as he had a record day.
Kevin Goheen, FoxSportsOhio: If there is a cautionary tale coming out of this game it will be the injury situation, especially with just four days before the Miami game.
Paul Dehner, Jr, Enquirer: When asked if he anticipated the ball coming his way on the Jets first drive of the third quarter, Chris Crocker flashed a quick smile.“I study,” he said.
Adam Jones threatens David Nelson
Combustible Bengals’ cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones may have crossed the line with a threat to wide receiver David Nelson during the Jets’ 49-9 loss on Sunday.
Mike Vaccaro, NY Post: Then, there’s this. There’s grotesque. There’s overmatched, and undermanned, and outwitted. There’s Bengals 49, Jets 9, which only tells a fraction of how bad it really was, which only provides a hint of how truly detached the Jets felt from the Bengals, separated by 40 points and a few dozen layers of NFL competitiveness.
NY Post: The Bengals dismantled the Jets 49-9 at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, handing the Jets their most humiliating loss of the season.
NY Daily News: Apparently the Jaguars dressed up as the Jets for Halloween. Gang Green was utterly embarrassed in Cincinnati after transforming Andy Dalton into Peyton Manning for the evening, losing to the Bengals 49-9.

Coley Harvey, ESPN: What it means: Are there any words that can define what Sunday's blowout means for the Bengals? Not really. About the only thing I can think to say after the type of dominating performance that had to make the Oregon Ducks and Florida State Seminoles envious is the following: If you haven't already, wake up, NFL fans and turn your attention to Cincinnati. The football team here certainly looks for real.
One Hell of a performance in all 3 phases of the game Offense, Defense and Special Teams. This was a great team win, now on to the next one.— Geno Atkins (@GenoSacks) October 27, 2013
