                           === Bengals rout Jets ===
 
 Cincinnati,  OH (SportsNetwork.com)  - Marvin Jones had a breakout performance
 Sunday against the New York Jets.
 
 Jones,  a second-year receiver from California, caught a franchise record four
 touchdown passes in the Cincinnati Bengals' 49-9 rout at Paul Brown Stadium.
 
 Andy  Dalton  threw for 325  yards and five scores  on 19-of-30 throws in just
 three  quarters.  He found Jones  eight times for  122 yards, while A.J. Green
 added 115 yards on just three catches.
 
 "We  knew we were  going to have to take some shots today," said Bengals coach
 Marvin Lewis.
 
 The  Bengals  (6-2) took back two  Geno Smith interceptions for touchdowns and
 the AFC North front-runners rolled to their fourth straight victory.
 
 Smith  and the Jets  (4-4) failed to build off their overtime victory over the
 New  England Patriots.  New York managed just 240 total yards, with the rookie
 quarterback  accounting  for 159  yards and  a pair  of pick-sixes on 20-of-30
 passing.
 
 Opponents came in averaging 225 yards through the air against the Jets; Dalton
 gashed them for 257 in the first half alone.
 
 "That  was ugly, to say the least," said Jets coach Rex Ryan. "We're fortunate
 it only counts for one loss because you get your butt kicked like that, you're
 fortunate that's all it is."
 
 The  one-sided  affair began in the  opening quarter with the Bengals owning a
 dominating 172-1 advantage in yards.
 
 Jones capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive with 9-yard touchdown catch and Jermaine
 Gresham hauled in a 4-yard pass in the back of the end zone to give Cincinnati
 a 14-0 lead just 10:39 into the game.
 
 The  Bengals were  on the doorstep again  early in the second but were stopped
 three times at the 2-yard line.
 
 Dalton  cooled off a bit when Muhammad Wilkerson tipped a pass and intercepted
 it  off another  deflection to set up  Nick Folk's 45-yard field goal, but the
 Bengals answered with a quick 8-play, 86-yard scoring drive.
 
 Jones made several defenders miss on a 45-yard catch, then added a 6-yard grab
 just past the left pylon for a 21-3 Bengals lead midway through the quarter.
 
 Folk  was true from  47 yards out 1:08 before halftime, and Brandon Tate's 71-
 yard  return  on the ensuing  kickoff allowed the Bengals  to tack on more via
 Jones'  acrobatic  14-yard touchdown  catch. With a  defender draped over him,
 Jones caught the ball in the air, got his left foot down and dragged his right
 before being pushed out of bounds.
 
 Chris Crocker stepped in front of Smith's intended receiver, Jeremy Kerley, on
 the  first play  of the second half  and went 32 yards untouched the other way
 for a score.
 
 After  Folk connected from 50 yards out, Dalton and Jones hooked up again late
 in the third, this time on a quick hitch that Jones took in for a 6-yard TD.
 
 Smith's  last  throw came early in  the fourth and resulted in an interception
 for Adam Jones, who easily returned it 60 yards for a touchdown.
