This advanced Cincinnati’s lead to 24-14.
Soon after, the Cardinals cut that lead to 24-20 with Emari Demercado’s 11-yard touchdown run.
The Bengals were deep into the Cardinal’s territory when receiver Trenton Irwin fell while running a route, which led to an interception for the Cardinals K’Von Wallace.
Bengals defense responded with a fourth down stop, and Burrow led a 15-play, 83-yard drive, capped by Chase’s third touchdown catch of the game, according to the AP.
This brought the score to the final of 34-20, with the Bengals in the lead.
