ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Mike Nugent hit a 43-yard field goal with 6:44 left in overtime to lift the Cincinnati Bengals to a 27-24 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Brandon Tate's 29-yard punt return to the Bills 33 set up the decisive score. Andy Dalton went 26 of 40 for 337 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception. He bounced back after a two-game touchdown drought, and led the Bengals (4-2) to their first road win of the season.

The Bills (2-4) were led by quarterback Thad Lewis, starting in place of injured rookie EJ Manuel. Lewis went 19 of 32 for 216 yards and two touchdowns after being promoted off the practice squad last week. Both touchdown passes came in the fourth quarter, including a 40-yarder to Marquise Goodwin with 1:08 remaining.

Lewis also scored a touchdown rushing in making only his second career start.
