Cincinnati had been just 3-56 in the last 59 games in which the offense was held to 195 or fewer yards. Two of losses came in the last four weeks – 29-14 at Pittsburgh when the Bengals had 179 yards on Oct. 22, and 23-7 at Jacksonville when they gained 148 on Nov. 5.

The last time the Bengals won with 195 or fewer yards was in the 2012 season finale against Baltimore when both teams rested their starters and Cincinnati scored a 23-17 triumph with just 189 yards.
