CINCINNATI -- The Broncos went right at Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones, and got him.Denver put in several plays designed specifically to get Jones caught out of position, and they wound up with a pair of long touchdown passes during a 29-17 win over Cincinnati on Sunday.Jones, the Bengals top cornerback, fumbled a punt that set up the Broncos first touchdown. Emmanuel Sanders made a double move to get past him along the sideline for a 41-yard score. In the fourth quarter, the Broncos expected Jones to be covering Demaryius Thomas for what turned out to be the clinching play.Jones was on the sideline with cramps, but the Broncos ran the double-move play anyway and got a 55-yard touchdown over backup cornerback Chris Lewis-Harris.It was so horrible, Jones said of his rough first half. It happens. The greats go out and find a way to make a play.The Broncos (3-0) got four touchdown passes from Trevor Siemian in his first road start, including the two long plays when receivers made a move in one direction to draw the cornerback that way, and then ran past them.We game-planned all week on double moves, said Sanders, who had nine catches for 117 yards and two touchdowns. In the first 15 plays, we had three or four double moves. We knew we were going to take our shots, even on Demaryius touchdown.That was a double move versus Pacman. Those double moves paid off.Cincinnati (1-2) got its defense run over in a win over the Jets and a loss to the Steelers. The Bengals came out determined to stop the running game and make Siemian and the Broncos fabulous receivers beat them. Denver wound up with 355 total yards -- 312 passing, 52 rushing.Both of the long touchdown passes came on third-down plays when defenders allowed the receivers to get past them.Weve got to figure that out and do better because right now, were not good enough at it, coach Marvin Lewis said.The Bengals have a lot of problems as they sit at 1-2 for the first time in five years. Their offense is out of sync and the defense has repeatedly given up big plays in all three games. The defending AFC North champions are already two games behind.This is a winning team by far, Jones said. The last two games we lost, we were better than those teams. Today they played better than us in the fourth quarter. But well learn from this and pick it up.---Online: AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Nike Free Run 2 Sale .

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Philadelphia 76ers and Minnesota Timberwolves had a combined record of 5-16 heading into their game on Thursday night, which may not seem an ideal matchup to be featured on TNT.But the network folks understand that these two long-suffering franchises boast some of the most intriguing young talent in the league. And the Timberwolves showed just how much further along they are in the rebuilding process.Andrew Wiggins had 35 points, 10 rebounds and four assists to lead the Timberwolves to a 110-86 victory over the 76ers.Karl-Anthony Towns had 25 points and 10 rebounds and Gorgui Dieng added 12 points and 10 boards for the Wolves (4-7). The Wolves shot 50.6 percent and avoided the poor third quarter that had plagued them this season.I think that theyre a lot further ahead for all the obvious reasons, and its not a lack of respect or disservice to our guys at all, Sixers coach Brett Brown said. This group that youre looking at played with each other all last year, many, many, many, many games together.Joel Embiid had 10 points and 10 rebounds in 23 minutes after sitting out the front end of Philadelphias back-to-back on Wednesday night. Dario Saric led the way with 16 points, but the 76ers lost their 21st straight road game.Theyre young and theyre still going to get better, and thats where weve got to get to, Embiid said. When you learn how to play with each other, its easier to play.Wiggins made 14 of 20 shots, including 3 of 6 3-pointers. The Wolves had been outscored by a league-worst 91 points in 10 third quarters this season, but they led by 28 at halftime on Thursday night, rendering a minus-1 in this game moot.At times last year I would drift to the corner and stay there, Wiggins said. Im just being more active. My awareness is higher. Im doing more.In a matchup of two of the best young big men in the league, Towns blew past Embiid to throw down a ferocious dunk in the fourth quarter to get the crowd on its feet. He made 12 of 18 shots.TIP-INS76ers: The last time the Sixers won a road gamee was Jan.dddddddddddd 20 at Orlando. ... Nik Stauskas had 13 points and five rebounds. ... Philly scored just 33 points on 31 percent shooting, tied for its lowest scoring output of the season.Timberwolves: Wiggins entered the game leading the NBA in 3-point shooting at 55 percent. ... F Shabazz Muhammad (sore right knee) and G/F Brandon Rush (right big toe) were both out again.NERVOUS FANSEmbiid missed the first two seasons after being drafted because of foot problems, and even in visiting arenas there is an audible gasp every time the 7-foot center falls to the court. He got tangled with Ricky Rubio early in the first quarter and appeared to be clutching his left ankle as he went to the bench. He was able to return in the second quarter, much to the relief of NBA fans everywhere.He waited so long to actually play and now hes dominating, said Wiggins, who was college teammates with Embiid at Kansas. Hes playing short minutes, but hes still getting numbers and playing really good.Embiid hit the deck again in the fourth when Wolves forward Adreian Payne threw him down while wrestling for a rebound. Payne was given a technical foul.GOOD CROWDThe Wolves announced attendance of 16,866, easily the largest of the year. It came one game after the arena was half-empty for a game against Charlotte. The low attendance early has been a troubling sign for an organization that was hoping to turn the corner this season.The Wolves targeted this game and select others to cluster their group tickets in hopes of padding attendance. They also offered season ticket holders two free additional tickets to the game to try to get more fans, which have been slow to spend their money this season thanks to Minnesotas 3-7 start, out to the game.UP NEXT76ers: Head back home to host Phoenix on Saturday.Timberwolves: Hit the road after a four-game home stand to face Memphis for the third time already this season.
