Bengals' Week 2 win by the numbers

CINCINNATI -- As we start putting the proverbial bow on the Cincinnati Bengals' second ballgame of the year, here is a by-the-numbers look at their 24-10 win over the Falcons:

10: Number of consecutive regular season home games the Bengals have won dating to December 2012. They do have one postseason home loss during that stretch which came last January.

3: Number of field goals missed by kicker Mike Nugent, from 38 (wide right), 49 (wide left) and 55 (short left) yards. He did bury a 31-yard field goal in the first quarter.

158.3: Career passer rating for Bengals receiver Mohamed Sanu, who has three completions in his career. He had one his rookie year in 2012, one last season and another Sunday.

50: Number of yards on Sanu's deep pass to fellow receiver Brandon Tate, who caught it in stride and in bounds just before being tackled.

97: Number of yards or rushing offense the Bengals' defense allowed. It's the second straight game the unit has held an opposing offense under 100 yards.

5.1: Number of yards the Falcons' offense averaged on the ground. That includes quarterback Matt Ryan's 9.3 that came off a trio of scrambles into the middle of the field for big gains.

48.6: Ryan's passer rating versus the Bengals. The week before, he had a passer rating of 128.8 in a win over the Saints.

26.9: Ryan's QBR versus the Bengals. The week before, he had a QBR of 91.9 in the win over New Orleans.

6: Number of times Bengals running back Giovani Bernard was targeted in the passing game. It was the second straight week he led the team in targets. He had 10 against the Ravens last week.

3: Number of interceptions by Bengals defenders. They had three interceptions in three games last year, all at home -- against the Browns, Vikings and Ravens. On Sunday, George Iloka and Leon Hall intercepted Ryan. Iloka did it twice.

25: Percentage of third downs the Bengals allowed Atlanta to convert. The Falcons were 3-of-12.

23: Atlanta's average start of field position; the Falcons' own 23. Their last two drives began at their own 1- and 4-yard lines after successfully downed punts.

9: Number of tackles cornerback Terence Newman had, pacing all Bengals defenders.

2: Number of wins the Bengals have this season. This is their first 2-0 start since 2006.

169: Number of total yards for Bernard; a career high. He rushed for 90 yards and had 79 receiving.

1: Sanu became the first player in the NFL since Rod Smith in 2003 to pass for 50-plus yards and catch for 50-plus yards in the same game.
