EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Coming off an impressive win at Baltimore last week, the Bengals flopped badly in a 34-31 loss to the New York Jets.

The Bengals were unable to hold an 11-point lead in the fourth quarter.

The defense gave up 511 yards and allowed quarterback Mike White, who was making his first start.

White threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns, caught a 2-point conversion pass on the go-ahead score, and joined Cam Newton (2011) as the only players since at least 1950 to throw for 400 or more yards in their first career start.

With the Bengals (5-3) leading 31-20 in the fourth quarter, the Jets got an acrobatic touchdown by Johnson, who took a short pass from White and tip-toed down the left sideline and reached over the goal line for a 19-yard score. It was initially ruled Johnson stepped out at the 2, but video review overturned the call and confirmed the touchdown.

The Bengals will try to rebound next week when they host the rival Browns.

“It’s a wakeup call, for sure,” Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard said. “Any team can beat anybody on any given Sunday. We learned that today. It’s a valuable lesson that won’t be forgotten.”

Rookie RG Jackson Carman was carted off in the fourth quarter with a back injury.
