Eifert scored his first touchdown since December 2016 in the second quarter. His fourth catch of game — already his 15th of the season — will likely be his last this year. 

The Bengals tight end left the field on a cart with his right ankle in an air cast 40 seconds following a 2-yard gain where his right leg contorted in a gruesome way that's unwatchable on replay.
