Carson Palmer has horrible homecoming, Raiders lose to Bengals 34-10

Al Behrman/APOakland Raiders quarterback Carson Palmer (3) lies on the ground after being sacked in the first half of an NFL football game against the Cincinnati Bengals

Andy Dalton threw three touchdown passes and the Cincinnati Bengals showed their former franchise quarterback that they've moved on without him, beating Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders 34-10 on Sunday.

BenJarvus Green-Ellis ran for 129 yards and a touchdown against the NFL's most generous defense. He had runs of 48 and 39 yards — the longest of his career — to set up scores.

Palmer had a tough time all-around in his return to Cincinnati, going 19 of 34 for 146 yards with four sacks and an interception.

With their third straight win, the Bengals (6-5) moved back into the playoff chase.

A brawl in the fourth quarter resulted in Oakland's Tommy Kelly and Lamarr Hunt and Cincinnati's Andrew Whitworth getting ejected.

Oakland (3-8) has lost a season-high four straight games, giving up 169 points in the process.
