Peerman scores twice as Bengals topple Eagles

Cedric Peerman rushed for 47 yards and scored two fourth-quarter touchdowns, as the Cincinnati Bengals beat Philadelphia, 22-9, in a preseason contest from Paul Brown Stadium.

Bengals starting quarterback Carson Palmer was 15-of-23 for 169 yards, but threw a pair of interceptions.

Former Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens had three catches for 67 yards in the first half, including a 43-yard reception down the right sideline that set up a six-yard touchdown run by Bernard Scott with 8:44 remaining in the second quarter.

Kevin Kolb led Philadelphia down the field on two possessions later in the half, but had to settle for a pair of David Akers field goals. Kolb completed 11-of-17 passes for 126 yards.

Akers kicked a 48-yarder to put Philadelphia up 9-7 in the waning moments of the third quarter, but Peerman gave Cincinnati the lead when he capped the ensuing offensive series with a 22-yard TD run. The Bengals opted to go for the two-point conversation and Peerman converted on the run to make it 15-9 early in the fourth.

Morgan Trent picked off Philadelphia’s Mike Kafka later in the quarter, one of three interceptions by the second-year cornerback, and returned the ball to the Eagles’ 17-yard-line. Five consecutive handoffs to Peerman resulted in a 22-9 advantage for the Bengals.

On the injury front, Eagles wideout Jeremy Maclin suffered a left shoulder contusion and Cincinnati safety Gibril Wilson left with a knee injury.
