Bengals improve under new OC, but lose in OT

(TSX / STATS) -- CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Bengals showed improvement Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field although they still lost to the Green Bay Packers, 27-24, in overtime.

Last Monday, the Bengals fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese, who was with the team since 2013. They handed the job to Bill Lazor, who was told to get the offense in gear. He needed to make quarterback Andy Dalton more comfortable in the pocket, find more touches for five-time Pro Bowl receiver A.J. Green, and get more production from a paltry rushing attack.

After opening the season without a touchdown in eight quarters, the Bengals finally broke through less than six minutes into Sunday's game with a 10-yard touchdown pass from Dalton to Green. Dalton also threw a well-executed six-yard touchdown pass to Giovani Bernard as the Bengals built a 21-7 halftime lead.
