Eagles collapse in second half
By Rob Maaddi/AP

One Pennsylvania team down, one to go for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Andy Dalton threw one touchdown pass and ran for another score, an opportunistic defense forced five turnovers and the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Philadelphia Eagles 34-13 Thursday night.

The Bengals (8-6) took a half-game lead over the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) for the last playoff spot in the AFC. But their game at Pittsburgh next week is far more important in the standings than this one.

The Bengals would clinch their second straight playoff berth with a win over the Steelers if Pittsburgh loses to Dallas this Sunday. A loss to the Steelers, though, would likely ruin Cincinnati's chances.

The Eagles' season was lost a long time ago. They fell to 4-10, losing double-digit games for the first time since 2005.
