Then Tracey Bacon tossed an 8-yard touchdown pass to Shino Ellis, and the Bengals scored again on a 2-point conversion pass from Bacon to Joe Marchitte to put Buffalo up 17-0.
Buffalo opened the fourth quarter after a scoreless third with an 85-yard scoring drive. Ed Carter caught a pass from Bacon at the three-yard line to score. Carter ran in again from two yards out to cap a 68-yard drive. Jeff Colasanti ran for 63 of the 68 yards.
The shutout was the Bengals’ second of the season. Canisius falls to 2-3.
